Galarian Slowpoke ImageGalarian Slowpoke 60 Psychic Type

*The levels of Avery's Pokemon will vary depending on how many gyms the player has completed – the numbers shown here are those when the player has already completed the main story.

Tips for Beating Avery (First Battle)

Use Dark-Type Pokemon

Since Avery uses Psychic-type Pokemon, bringing Dark-type Pokemon that are immune to Psychic-type moves is recommended. Bug or Ghost-type Pokemon that are strong against Psychic-types are also good to bring.

Tips for Beating Avery (Second Battle)

Watch Out For Kadabra

You will fight Avery for the second time in Warm-Up Tunnel. Be sure to heal up your Pokemon before picking the Max Mushroom. Kadabra has high special attack and speed so you should avoid bringing Pokemon weak to Psychic-type attacks.

Tips for Beating Avery (Third Battle)

Beware of Psychic Terrain

In your third fight against Avery, the field will changed to Psychic Terrain. While under the effects of Psychic Terrain, Psychic-type moves will do 1.3 times their normal damage so they will hit much harder than before. Changing the terrain with Grassy Terrain or a dynamax move like Max Lightning can help protect you from this.

Dynamaxed Slowbro is Dangerous

During this fight, Avery will dynamax his Galarian Slowbro. It will come out you with Psychic Terrain boosted Max Mindstorm or Max Ooze which boosts its special attack so in order to combat this you should dynamax as well.

Tips for Beating Avery (Post-Game Battle)

Previous Strategies Still Work

All of the Pokemon that Avery used in the previous match are now fully evolved and he will still dynamax his Galarian Slowbrow. However, since his Pokemon are all the same level as in the previous battle and he won't use Psychic Terrain, as long as you can exploit his Pokemon's weaknesses you should be fine.

How to Rematch Avery

Anytime After Clearing the Story

Once you've cleared the entire Isle of Armor story, speaking to Avery in the Master Dojo will allow you to rematch with him once per day. This is useful for leveling your Pokemon and getting some more money.

Exclusive to Shield Version

Avery appears in the Isle of Armor DLC for Pokemon Shield as your rival. He does not appear in Pokemon Sword.

Levels Vary Based on Story Progress

The Pokemon that Avery uses in battle's level are dependent on how much progress you've made in the Gym Challenge of the main game. This article shows the max levels of the Pokemon after clearing the main story and its post-game scenario.
