Tips and Strategies

Best Items to Bring

Escape Orb ImageEscape Orb Inviting Orb ImageInviting Orb

The rare Pokemon Whismur and Spoink appear in Howling Forest so you might want to have Inviting Orbs on hand so you can increase the recruitment rate and Escape Orbs so you can safely escape from the dungeon and properly recruit them into your rescue team.

Best Pokemon to Use

Howling Forest has a good mix of different types, so we recommend having a good mix of types on your team as well. In particular, a strong Fighting-type Pokemon like Machamp is a great Pokemon to have due to its type advantage against Normal-types and Dark-types.

Also, despite the disadvantage Ghost-types face against Dark-types, Gastly is immune to Normal-type Pokemon, making it a great pick for your team.

Pokemon to Watch Out For

All three Pokemon have attacks to watch out for. Exeggcute uses Barrage, which not only attacks continuously but even hits Pokemon that aren't in line with the Exeggcute. Meanwhile, Whismur and Loudred both use Uproar, which affects the entire room.

That being said, these are all Normal-type moves, so at the very least, Gastlys will be protected against these.
