Location: Motostoke Hotel


After defeating them both in singles competition, Team Yell will try a new tactic in this battle: Double Battle. They’ll bring out both of their Pokemon to battle you and your friend at the same time. There’s no change to them other than this so we’ll repeat the information about their individual Pokemon from our previous battle article.

The first grunt will throw out a Zigzagoon, which is a Normal/Dark Type, making it weak to Fighting, Bug and Fairy Type, immune to Ghost and Psychic and resistant to Dark Type.

The second grunt will bring out a Nickit, which is a Dark Type. This makes it weak to Fighting, Bug and Fairy Type, immune to Psychic Type and resistant to Ghost and Dark Type.

Yes they’re back for more punishment, directly after suffering defeat at your hands. They’re certainly keen aren’t they?

The battle itself won’t be difficult, assuming you had no trouble defeating them each in singles battle. Don’t forget those weaknesses we spoke about before, in particular any Fighting type move will completely destroy both of the opponents. You may even have a special move that hits both of them at once! If you’re still struggling at all, try to focus one of the enemies down at a time, but even if you’re just using normal attacks you should be just fine.

Scorbunny or Pancham will again do well here if you’re levelled up enough and you’ve been doing some wild area capturing. You’re unlikely to have any Pokemon or attacks that they resist by now, so just attack and you’ll be fine!

Once defeated they finally calm down, and you’ll learn exactly who they’re yelling about. We do kind of like that scarf they have though, maybe we’ll be able to buy one later on for our outfit.

As usual you’ll get a nice chunk of change for winning the battle too!
