Tips and Strategies

Best Items to Bring

With 60 floors to explore, Mt. Faraway can be a difficult dungeon to go through, especially considering the tough boss battle you'll have to face at the end of it.

To that end, we suggest bringing Guiding Wands and Pure Seeds that can get you to the floor's stairs as fast as possible. Guiding Wands are especially useful since you can use one up to 40 times, so these wands won't take up too much space in your toolbox.

Best Pokemon to Use

Since most of the Pokemon roaming around Mt. Faraway are Fire-type, we suggest bringing powerful Water-type Pokemon like those above. That said, make sure that they don't just have Water-type moves as Mt. Faraway is also home to many Water- and Ice-type Pokemon.

Vs. Ho-oh

The best strategy you can use for Ho-oh is to hit it with as many super-effective attacks as possible and aim for a short battle.

Not only can Ho-oh do massive amounts of damage (over a 100!) with Sacred Fire, but it can give your team the Burn status too. On top of that, Ho-oh will eventually start recovering HP after a change in terrain, which can draw out the battle even further.

That said, just keep on hitting Ho-oh with powerful attacks, and you should be able to take it down.

A lot of Pokemon in Mt. Faraway can Mega-Evolve so be extra careful when exploring. They could even take you out from afar with long-range attacks, so proceed with caution!
