Tips and Strategies

Best Items to Bring

You don't need to bring anything special for dungeon exploration aside from the usual recovery items, but we suggest you stock your toolbox up with items for the difficult boss battle with Mewtwo.

Best Pokemon to Use

Mawile ImageMawile Metagross ImageMetagross Absol ImageAbsol Sableye ImageSableye

Western Cave is filled with high-level Psychic-type Pokemon, so you should bring strong Dark- or Steel-type Pokemon that can easily take them down or take their Psychic-type attacks. We also recommend grinding your team up to at least level 60 before taking on this dungeon.

Vs. Mewtwo

Mewtwo hits hard, but he usually only targets your team one at a time, so you should be fine as long you keep using recovery items.

However, the real battle begins once you get Mewtwo's HP low enough that it Mega-Evolves. With its higher Attack and Sp. Atk stats, don't be surprised if he takes out members of your team in one shot.

Fortunately, the battle's almost over once Mewtwo Mega-Evolves, so continue hitting Mewtwo with super-effective damage from afar. Eventually, you should be able to defeat it.

Pokemon to Watch Out For

Claydol ImageClaydol Natu ImageNatu Spinda ImageSpinda

Claydol and Natu are rather dangerous due to their use of room-affecting moves like Earth Power and Ominous Wind.

Spinda can also be tough to deal with due to the Confusion status it gives your team through Teeter Dance.
