There are many rooms in this dungeon that will pose a threat to you as they contain several Pokemon that are bunched up. It is a good stratergy to have Orbs that can disable the whole room.

An Escape Orb is good to have in case some of the more crowded rooms get too troublesome to deal with.

Room-wide Attacks

Trapinch can use Earth Power to damage the whole room and lower your Sp. Def be careful and take him out as soon as possible.

Shedinja Mechanics

Shedinja can be defeated by enemies and those Pokemon will be buffed. Avoid this by eliminating all the Shedinja you see. You will be notified in chat if an enemy Pokemon has been able to defeat a Shedinja so pay attention.
