Strategy Tips

Entei will use permanent field effects that reduce physical damage or reduce special damage, and at least one of these will be effective at all times.
You should do your best to land critical hits, since they will deal damage that ignores field effects.
Raising your critical-hit rate with Dire Hit All and Dire Hit +—or using moves that ensure the next attack is a critical hit—will make it easier for you to land critical hits.

On occasion, Entei can also ensure its next attack is a critical hit and raise its critical-hit rate, allowing it to unleash powerful attacks.
Entei has a low resistance to flinch, so this condition is a good way to halt its moves for a set amount of time.
Since Water-type moves are Entei’s weakness, Waterfall, which has a small chance of making the opponent flinch, is particularly effective.
Entei’s flinch resistance increases every time it recovers from flinching, so it’s best to time your moves wisely.

HP Bar 1

  • You can raise all allies’ critical-hit rate with Sabrina & Alakazam’s Dire Hit All or Player Character & Torchic’s Blazing Hope!

HP Bar 2

  • You can raise your critical-hit rate with Phoebe & Dusknoir’s Dire Hit All + and Crasher Wake & Floatzel’s Dire Hit +!
  • You can make Entei flinch with Kris & Feraligatr’s, Hilbert & Samurott’s, or Crasher Wake & Floatzel’s Waterfall; or with Nanu & Persian’s Bite!
  • Waterfall and Bite are physical attacks, so try using Nanu & Persian’s Screech to lower your opponent’s Defense for more damage.

HP Bar 3

  • All allies will be burned when Entei uses Heat Wave. You can remove the burned condition with Sygna Suit Grimsley & Sharpedo’s Sink or Swim! or Cheren & Stoutland’s Full Heal!
  • Sygna Suit Grimsley & Sharpedo’s Sink or Swim! is a powerful move, but it will greatly decrease their HP. You can use Dawn & Torterra’s Good as New! to fully restore their HP!
