4. Boss List & Strategies***************************PMD4*********************

===============================
BOSS : Zubat (x1), Koffing (x1)

When : Chapter 1
Where: Beach Cave Pit
===============================

In this battle, Pikachu will be at the greatest advantage, having Electric
moves that Zubat is weak against. The Grass types are at the disadvantage,
though. If you have Pikachu, try to make him focus on Zubat while the other
focuses on Koffing. When Zubat is KO'ed, switch to double-teaming Koffing. If
you brought a seed, throw it at Zubat first. Overall, pretty easy. However,
get rid of Zubat first, as he has Leech Life, an HP-absorbing move.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

=======================
BOSS : Drowzee (x1)

When : Chapter 3
Where: Atop Mt. Bristle
=======================

This guy is actually fairly tough, as neither you nor the enemy have an
advantage over the other (unless you/your partner is Bulbasaur; the enemy will
have the advantage). Drowzee will get 50% attack bonus from his powerful
Confusion move. This is why you should've brought some Sleep Seeds. Other than
that, he has Hypnosis, Pound, and Disable. Just put him to sleep and wail on
him!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

=============================
BOSS : Groudon

When : Chapter 9
Where: After Upper Steam Cave
=============================

As you may know, Groudon has the ability of Drought. This makes it sunny, which
will weaken Water moves and strengthen Fire as well as allowing for the instant
use of Solarbeam.

Okay, Groudon is a Ground-type Pokémon. This means he is weak against Water,
Grass, and Ice (forget about Water; remember Drought?). Luckily, he doesn't
have a Ground-type move on him, so your Pikachu will be just fine in this
battle. You should begin by using a status-inflicting move on him, or a Sleep
Seed. Once a status is inflicted, restrict your partner's moves to all moves
that will do super-effective damage to Groudon. Other than that, a fairly easy
boss if you're leveled up well enough.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==============================
BOSS : Luxray (x1), Luxio (x7)

When : Chapter 10
Where: End of Amp Plains
==============================

Okay, all of these Pokémon are Electric type. Therefore, they are weak against
Ground only and will devastate your Water and Flying types (God forbid you
brung Wingull).

Okay, you are fighting eight Electric types and Orbs are ineffective. So what
to do? Well, you should immediately put a status on the Luxray. Mud Sport is
helpful here. If you happen to have a Pokémon with Magnitude or another
room-wide move, completely abuse the heck out of it. Not much else to say.

In general, ANY Ground move is useful. Multi-target moves help, too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

===============================
BOSS : Mesprit

When : Chapter 11
Where: After Quicksand Cave Pit
===============================

Mesprit is a Psychic type. She will therefore be weak to Bug, Dark, and Ghost
type moves. Dark types will be immune to her Psychic moves (which are Confusion
and Future Sight).

She isn't actually powerful, as she will usually use Future Sight, which will
set her damage to 30. If not, Confusion will pack a punch if you're a Poison
or Fighting type. If you have trouble, simply use a Sleep Seed or something.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

=============================
BOSS : Grovyle

When : Chapter 12
Where: After Crystal Crossing
=============================

NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WIN!

Obviously, Grovyle is a Grass type, making it weak against Ice, Poison, Bug,
and Flying. He'll have an advantage over Water, Rock, and Ground.

He'll get a major amount of damage in with Leaf Blade (God forbid you brought
any type weak to Grass). Counter it with moves he is weak against, or, even
better, put him to Sleep with a seed or move or something. You get the idea.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==============================
BOSS : Spiritomb

When : Chapter 14
Where: After Deep Sealed Ruins
==============================

Spiritomb is a Ghost/Dark Pokémon. This makes it one of those rare Pokémon that
have no weaknesses. Even worse, it is immune to Normal, Fighting, and Psychic;
it additionally resists Poison.

The main idea here is to avoid its Hypnosis because it will probably use Dream
Eater on you soon afterwards to deal some serious damage if you don't wake up.
Dream Eater also restores Spiritomb's HP. It can also use Ominous Wind to hurt
you and your partner and possibly increase its own stats. If you have any
status-inducing seeds/moves, use them. Overall, it isn't very hard, just more
of an annoying battle.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==================================
BOSS : Kabutops (x1), Omastar (x2)

When : Chapter 18
Where: After Brine Cave Pit
==================================

All three are Rock/Water type. They will be weak against Grass, Electric,
Fighting, and possibly Steel and Ground. They have a type advantage over Fire,
Rock, Ground, Ice, and Flying types.

It isn't too hard. You should knock Kabutops out of the running first because
of his ranged moves. Chances are that you have a type advantage of some sort,
so it likely you won't have any trouble. Grass is a good one to have, as it
should deal quadruple or so damage.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==================================
BOSS : Dusknoir (x1), Sableye (x6)

When : Chapter 19
Where: After Hidden Highland
==================================

Dusknoir is a Ghost type. This means he is weak against Ghost and Dark, while
being immune to Normal and Fighting, and also being advantageous against
Psychic, Ghost, and Dark (?). He also has the ability known as Pressure, which
will increase your PP usage.

The Sableye are Dark/Ghost types. This means they have no weaknesses. They are
immune to Psychic, Fighting, and Normal moves. They will be advantageous when
fighting Psychic, Ghost, and Dark (?) types.

As for a strategy, most things will work. After all, it is very unlikely that
these seven Pokémon have a type advantage over you (although you possibly have
a move-type advantage over THEM). A great aid is a status seed; if you have
one, use it against Dusknoir. Multi-target moves (such as Thunderbolt) or
room-wide moves (such as Vacuum Cut and Discharge) work very well. Other than
that, you should be fine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

===========================
BOSS : Dialga 

When : Chapter 19
Where: After Temporal Spire
===========================

Dialga is a Dragon/Steel type, leaving little room for weakness. I think
Fighting and Ice may be super-effective; Dragon is for sure. You'll have to try
to use moves with neutral effect. In other words, try to pick moves that Dragon
resists that Steel does not (or vica versa), or moves neutral to both.

Your main worry will be the Roar of Time, a two-sided sword. It will deal
immense damage to you while stalling Dialga for a few turns. Use the first to
restore yourself, the second to restore your partner, the third (if any) to
status Dialga with a seed, and any other turns to attack. You really to status
Dialga to have a good chance of winning (although the Pikachu/Treecko combo I
used did well without seeds). If you have a ranged move, use it. That way,
Dialga cannot stop your move with its Intimidator IQ Skill. Other than that, I
wish you luck!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

=========================================================================
BOSS : Wigglytuff, Chatot, Croagunk, Diglett, Dugtrio, Sunflora, Corphish,
       Loudred

When : Post-credits.
Where: After Mystifying Forest, graduation exam.
=========================================================================

Seem familiar? This one is going to be a pain. I'd deal with Wigglytuff first,
by status or killer moves.

Okay. Wigglytuff and Loudred are Normal types. They are weak against Fighting
and immune to Ghost. There aren't any type advantages, but Wigglytuff has a
M-A-S-S-I-V-E amount of HP and power.

Chatot is a Normal/Flying type. He is weak against Rock, Electric, and Ice. He
is immune to Ground and Ghost. He has an advantage against Bug, Grass, and
Fighting types.

Croagunk is Poison. He is weak against Ground and Psychic and is advantageous
over Grass.

Diglett and Dugtrio are Ground types. They are weak against Water, Ice, and
Grass and advantageous against Rock, Fire, Steel, and Electric. They are immune
to Electric. Additionally, one of them has the powerful Earth Power (I may be a
bit biased; remember, my starter was Pikachu).

Sunflora is a Grass type. She is weak against Flying, Fire, Ice, and Bug. She
has the upper hand against Water, Rock, and Ground.

Corphish is a Water type. He is weak against Grass and Electric move. He has
the upper hand against Fire, Rock, and Ground.

Strategy? Leave Wigglytuff for last, keeping him in check with Sleep Seeds.
Use room-wide moves, such as Discharge, Earth Power, and Vacuum Cut (preferably
to latter two). You must have a fair deal of Reviver Seeds. Five is sufficient
for those who have types neutral to Ground moves. If one/both are weak against
Ground moves, bring 10 ~ 15.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

================================
BOSS : Froslass

When : Post-credits.
Where: After Lower Crevice Cave.
================================

This is a Pokémon you fought occasionally in an earlier dungeon. Froslass is
an Ice/Ghost type. She is weak against Fire, Rock, Steel, Dark, and Ghost. She
is immune to Normal and Fighting moves. She'll have an advantage against Grass,
Flying, Ground, and Ghost types.

She also has Snow Cloak like Glaceon, raising her evasion in hailing weather.
But, nevertheless, that is the main thing she has going for her. Just Seed her
and use those weaknesses.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==============================
BOSS : Gyarados

When : Post-credits.
Where: After Deep Miracle Sea.
==============================

Gyarados is a Water/Flying type. It is therefore weak to Electric moves and
immune to Ground moves. Electric moves will do 4x damage, so if you have such
a move, you need no strategy.

Basically, status him and wail on him with neutral/super-effective moves
(Grass, Normal, Ice, Poison, Flying, Psychic, Ghost, Dragon, Rock, Dark, and
Electric moves). Simple enough, right?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

====================
BOSS : Regice

When : Post-credits.
Where: Aegis Cave.
====================

Regice is an Ice type (duh). It is weak against Fighting, Rock, Steel (?), and
Fire. It has advantages over Flying, Grass, and Ground. Easy enough; use a
status if you somehow get in trouble.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

====================
BOSS : Regirock

When : Post-credits.
Where: Aegis Cave.
====================

Regirock is a Rock type (duh). It is weak against Fighting, Ground, Grass, and
Water. It has advantages over Flying, Ice, and Fire. It is an easy battle. You
know what to do if you get in trouble: status.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

====================
BOSS : Registeel

When : Post-credits.
Where: Aegis Cave.
====================

Registeel is a Steel type (mega-duh). It is weak against Fire, Fighting, and
Ground. It has advantages over Rock and Ice. Easy. Status when in trouble.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==============================================
BOSS : Regigigas, Hitmonlee (x4), Bronzor (x4)

When : Post-credits.
Where: Aegis Cave Pit.
==============================================

Regigigas is, amazingly enough, a Normal type. It is weak against Fighting,
immune to Ghost, and has no type advantages.

Hitmonlee is a Fighting type. It is weak against Psychic and Flying; immune to
Ghost; and has an advantage over Rock, Ice, Steel, and Normal.

Bronzor is a Steel/Psychic type. It is weak against Fire, Dark, and Ghost and
has advantages over Ice, Rock, Fighting, and Poison.

So, strategy? Not much of one needed. Just try to use multi-target moves. If
you have Agility, what else must I say?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

================================
BOSS : Palkia

When : Post-credits.
Where: After Deep Spacial Rift.
================================

Palkia is a Dragon/Water type. Its absolute only weakness is to Dragon, a move
type you likely do not have. It takes 1/2 damage from Steel and 1/4 from
Water and Fire. Everything else will do neutral damage. Additionally, it has
the Pressure ability, so you'll use more PP per attack. Palkia also has the
Intimidator IQ Skill, letting it possibly block foe-in-front moves.

The main attack to beware of is Spacial Rend, a slightly less powerful version
of Roar of Time which lacks the recharge time, making it all the more dangerous
to you. So, strategy? Abuse any status seeds and moves you have. Try, if
possible, to hit from long range, preferably with Dragon/neutral damaging
moves.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
FINAL BOSS : Darkrai, Arbok, Magmortar, Rhyperior, Aggron, Magcargo, Mismagius

When : Post-credits.
Where: After Deep Dark Crater.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Let's go over types. Darkrai is a Dark type. He is weak against Dark (?) and
Ghost; immune to Psychic; advantageous over Psychic and Ghost.

Arbok is a Poison type. It is weak against Psychic and Ground. It has the upper
hand over Grass.

Magmortar, is of the Fire type. It weak against Rock, Water, and Ground. It is
advantageous against Bug, Grass, and Ice.

Rhyperior is a Ground/Rock type. It'll be weak against Water, Grass, Ice,
Steel, and Fighting. It'll be immune to Electric (I believe it has Lightningrod
to draw all Electric moves to it and nullify damage). It'll be advantageous
against Fire, Rock, Steel, Electric, Bug, and Flying.

Aggron is a Rock/Steel Pokémon. It is weak against Fighting, Water, Fire,
and Ground. It is immune to Poison moves. It has the upper hand against Fire,
Flying, Rock, and Ice.

Magcargo is a Fire/Rock type. It is weak against Fire, Ground, Steel, and
Fighting. It is advantageous over Grass, Bug, Steel, Ice, and Flying.

Mismagius is a Ghost type. It is weak against Ghost and Dark; immune to Normal
and Fighting; and is advantageous over Psychic, Ghost, and Dark (?).

So, strategy? If you plan on using Electric moves, eliminate Rhyperior first
and foremost. While you do so (or do this first), put Darkrai in check with a
status. Remember, his Bad Dream ability will damage you while you sleep -- and
he can make you go to sleep. Get rid of the minions first, as usual, then go
onto Darkrai. Easier said than done, though. If you brought enough Reviver
Seeds and some room-wide/multi-target moves, you'll be okay. Good luck!


5. Optional Bosses*****************************PMD5**************************

==============================
BOSS : Kyogre

When : Post-credits.
Where: End of Bottomless Sea.
==============================

Kyogre is a Water type. It is weak against Electric and Grass; advantageous
over Fire, Rock, and Ground. It also will make Raining weather start, so Fire
is weakened and Water is strengthened. It is a simple battle; just don't use
the not-very-effective moves and abuse weaknesses, creating a status when you
need to.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

============================
BOSS : Heatran

When : Post-credits.
Where: End of Giant Volcano.
============================

Heatran is a Fire/Steel type. It is weak against Water, Ground, and Fighting.
It has the advantage over Bug, Grass, Ice, Steel, and Rock. It also has the
ability Flash Fire, which will power its moves up if Heatran is hit with a
Fire-type move.

Again, a fairly simple battle. Simply abuse weaknesses, use status items, and
AVOID USING FIRE IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, and you'll be fine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

============================
BOSS : Articuno

When : Post-credits.
Where: End of Mt. Avalanche.
============================

Articuno is an Ice/Flying type. It is weak against Fire, Rock, and Electric
moves. It is immune to Ground. It has an advantage against Flying, Grass, Bug,
Dragon, Ground, and Fighting types.

Your main problem is the room-wide STAB-boosted Powdered Snow. Status Articuno
quickly if you have a type weak against Ice (Flying, Grass, Ground, Dragon).
Other than that, you'll have no trouble.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

=============================
BOSS : Mew

When : Post-credits.
Where: End of Mystery Jungle.
=============================

Mew is a Psychic type. This means it is weak against Ghost, Dark, and Bug and
has the upper hand against Poison and Fighting.

Not too hard. Most moves will do neutral/super-effective damage to Mew, and Mew
doesn't have any too threatening moves, so I'll you take this one over.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

================================
BOSS : Groudon

When : Post-credits.
Where: End of Shimmering Desert.
================================

As you may know, Groudon has the ability of Drought. This makes it sunny, which
will weaken Water moves and strengthen Fire as well as allowing for the instant
use of Solarbeam.

Okay, Groudon is a Ground-type Pokémon. This means it is weak against Water,
Grass, and Ice. It is immune to Electric. It is advantageous over Rock, Fire,
and Steel.

If you have Solarbeam, abuse the hell out of it. Try to avoid the Fire Blasts,
use super-effective moves, and status as needed; it is fairly similar to the
last time you fought Groudon (except you have one/two more partners!).

===========================
BOSS : Rayquaza

When : Post-credits.
Where: End of Sky Stairway.
===========================

Rayquaza is a Dragon/Flying type. It is weak against Ice, Rock, and Dragon;
immune to Ground; and advantageous against Dragon, Bug, Grass, and Fighting.

The only problem Rayquaza presents is the move Fly; using Thunder on the tile
where Rayquaza was will still damage it. Other than that, simply status and
wail on him as usual.

==========================
BOSS : Giratina

When : Post-credits.
Where: End of World Abyss.
==========================

Giratina is a Ghost/Dragon type. It is weak against Ghost, Dark, Ice, and
Dragon. It is immune to Normal and Fighting. It has the advantage over Ghost,
Dark (?), Psychic, and Dragon.

I am not sure of its attacks; remember, I have a powerful Lv. 100 team? It is
quite reasonable to believe it has Shadow Force. If it charges for it, run!!
Other than that, pretty simple. Just try to abuse weaknesses and statuses, as
you would with any other boss battle.
