The Elite Four

How to defeat the Elite Four

The Elite Four are one tough bunch eh! Well, I said that at first but they are really easy if you know how to defeat them. In this section, you will find out all the information on the Elite Four what kind of Pokémon they use; even their names.

Come prepared

Never even attempt to beat these guys without these following items:
1) Pokéflute - Wake up your Pokémon that they put to sleep
2) Full heals (many) - Restore all life and aliments etc

What Pokémon should you use

Well to defeat the Elite Four you need a variety of Pokémon. You should have a fire, water, ground, electric, psychic and plant type of Pokémon, and they should all be level 60 or above.

Best Pokemon for each type
Plant Venesaur or Scyther
Fire Charizard or Moltres
Water Blastoise or Gyrados
Ground Dugtrio or Golem
Electric Raichu or Zapados
Psychic Alakazam or Hypno

Who are the Elite Four and how do I beat them?

1) Now first you must fight Lorelei. Use a strong Electric type for the first 3 Pokémon. Then use a fire type for the last 2.

2) The next person is Bruno. I suggest a water or grass type Pokémon.

3) Agatha is next. I usually put them to sleep first and then attack.

4) The last one is Lance. Start out with a strong electric type for Gyarados.

Helpful Hints

Don't be stupid and go in thinking that just because you have a level 100 Mew and nothing else that you're going to win. Train your Pokemon evenly. It might be harder but it pays off in the long run. Think while your battling don't use a Blastoise against a Weepinbell. It just doesn't work that way. Try and match them up with Pokemon that are weak against your type. Use your full restores wisely. Don't use it if a Pokémon's HP is 310/355. Wait until they are really low.

Below is some information on the Elite Four's Pokémon:

Your first duel is with Lorelei, Mistress of Icy Pokémon. Fire-type, Fighting-type, and Rock-type Pokémon all have a combat advantage against Ice-types. Many of her Pokémon also have Water-type characteristics, so be sure to guard against those powers too.


Pokémon Level
Onix 53
Hitmonchan 55
Hitmonlee 55
Onix 56
Machamp 58
Bruno is the second of the Elite Four trainers. Fighting-type Pokémon are his specialty, but he also has two Onix to round out his squad. If you want to go the distance, remember that Flying-type and Psychic-type Pokémon are more than a match for Fighting-types.


Pokémon Level
Gengar 56
Golbat 56
Haunter 55
Arbok 58
Gengar 60
If it's a challenge you want, then Agatha is ready to deliver. As you may or may not know, no type of Pokémon has a great advantage in battle over Ghost-types, and some special attacks won't affect them at all. Focus on Water- or Fire-type attacks.


Pokémon Level
Gyarados 58
Dragonair 56
Dragonair 56
Aerodactyl 60

Lance is the leader of the Elite Four and the most powerful trainer in the Pokémon League. His Dragon-type Pokémon are vulnerable to Ice-type and Fighting-type powers. On the other hand, no Pokémon can defend well against Dragon-type attacks, so keep lots of Potion ready.


Pidgeot 61
Alakazam 59
Rhydon 61

Gyarados 61 Exeggutor 61 Arcanine 61
Arcanine 63 Gyarados 63 Exeggutor 63

Gary defeated the Elite Four before you even set foot on Victory Road, and now you must beat him if you want to claim the title of World's Greatest Pokémon Trainer. The first half of his team consist of Pidgeot, Alakazam, and Rhydon. The second half differs from game to game, depending on which Pokémon he chose when the game began. If your Pokémon are level 74 or above, you should be able to defeat Gary's Pokémon with just a couple attacks each, but you should still be ready to defend against his Pokémon's special attacks.
