Tips for Beating Klara (Second Battle)

Whirlipede is Bulky

You will fight Klara for the second time in Warm-Up Tunnel. Be sure to heal up your Pokemon before picking the Max Mushroom. Klara's Whirlipede comes with high defense and special defense so you should aim for one of its weaknesses or set yourself up with attack boosting moves like Swords Dance.

Tips for Beating Klara (Third Battle)

The Battle Begins With Toxic Spikes

During your third fight with Klara she will open the battle by using Toxic Spikes, causing your Pokemon to be poisoned when swapping into battle.

However, Steel and Flying-types are not affected by Toxic Spikes, so bringing those types along is recommended.

Dynamaxed Slowbro is Dangerous

During this fight, Klara will dynamax her 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.

Drapion ImageDrapion 65 Poison Type Dark Type
66 Poison Type Fairy Type
Scolipede ImageScolipede 66 Bug Type Poison Type
Galarian Slowbro ImageGalarian Slowbro 67 Poison Type Psychic Type

Be Careful of Drapion's Typing

All of the Pokemon that Klara used in the previous match are now fully evolved and she will still dynamax her Galarian Slowbrow. In this fight, though, her evolved Drapion is now dual-typed and gains immunity to Poison-type. To deal with Drapion effectively, target its single Ground-type weakness.

How to Rematch Klara

Anytime After Clearing the Story

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