Chi-Yu Catching Tips

Catching Tips

Form a Dark and Fire Resistant Team

At level 60, Chi-Yu dishes out powerful Dark and Ice moves and lowers your pokemon's defense with its Ability, Beads of Ruin. Water-type is effective against Fire-type Pokemon, but be careful in using them if you want to catch Chi-Yu. Leave out your Grass, Ice, Ghost, Steel and Psychic Pokemon as they'll be weak against Chi-Yu's moves.

Use False Swipe to Prevent it from Fainting

Move Type Effect
False Swipe Pokemon Scarlet and Violet SV - Normal Type Moves Leaves the target with at least 1 HP.

False Swipe leaves the opposing Pokemon with exactly 1 HP, ensuring that the Pokemon you're aiming to catch won't faint.
