Walkthrough to beat the Elite 4
To get you started on beating the Elite 4 you need to first have all the gym badges, get past victory road, buy at least 15 -20 revives and full restores and have your pokemon at Lv. 60 or higher. Anyway to get started the first Elite 4 member you're going to face uses bug type pokemon of the elite four members name is Aaron. Heres Aaron's pokemon team below and their attacks. Elite 4 Member Aaron Pokemon: Attacks: Lv.53 Dustox Double Team, Toxic, Bug Buzz, Light Screen Lv.54 Heracross Megahorn,Close Combat,Night Slash, Stone Edge Lv.53 Beautifly Energy Ball,Psychic,Shadow Ball,Bug Buzz Lv.54 Vespiquen Defend Order,Heal Order, Attack Order,Power Gem Lv.57 Drapion X-Scissors,Cross Poison,Ice Fang,Aerial Ace The 1st Pokemon Aaron will send out will be Dustox. By now you should be very familiar with battling Dustox through playing the game.Dustox likes to Poison you with Toxic so be careful because the damage increases. Dustox uses Double Team to raise its evasion plus it uses light screen to weaken your special based attacks.It knows Bug Buzz if your planning of killing this thing with a Psychic Pokemon. Your best bet would be to use any Fire, Rock, Psychic, and Flying type moves or Pokemon. Watch out for bug buzz if your using a psycic type mobe. The 2nd Pokemon he'll send out is Heracross another pokemon you should be familiar with fighting your rival.It has a really good array of attacks that can do some serious damage.Your best bet is to use your best flying,fire, and psychic type moves. If your using a fire or flying type pokemon watch out for stone edge which can do some serious damage and if your using a Psychic type pokemon watch out for megahorn. After Heracross he might send out Beautifly which you should be familiar with. It has an array of attacks at its disposal. If your using a rock type pokemon watch out for energy ball which can do some serious damage. Use your best rock,and fire type moves to knock it out. After Beautifly he might send out Vespiquen. Now this pokemon might take a while to knock out because of its high defensive and special defensive stats. It'll use defend order alot to raise both defense stats and it'll use heal order to get back to full health. The good thing about vespiquen is that it can't do much damage to u. Use your best rock type move to 1 hit it since its x4 weak to rock move. The last pokemon he'll probably send out is his Drapion. It has an array of attacks that can annoy u. Drapion is a Dark and Poison Type so use you're best round type move to knock it out. And thats how u beat Aaron. Now proceed to the next room and heal your pokemon if nessisary. In the next room you'll see the 2nd Elite 4 member Bertha who uses ground type pokemon. Your grass and water type pokemon might come in handy.
