Allister’s Pokemon Lineup

How to Beat Gym Leader Allister

Allister’s Pokemon lineups are all Ghost mixed with other types of Pokemon which means its greatest weakness is Dark and Ghost-type Pokemon. However, you can also use Pokemon that are Water, Steel, and Psychic but it depends on the availability of your lineup.

If you’re planning to face Allister, it is recommended to have a Pokemon with at least level 34 to 36. The higher the level, the more chance of winning. In this guide, we recommend using Morgrem, Gyarados, Linoone, and Excadrill. In case you don’t have the listed Pokemon, you can also use Pokemon like Drifloon, Duskull, Impidimp, and Sneasel.

Due to the Pokemon that Allister is using, we also suggest bringing Super Potions, Revives, and X Special Defend as this will surely help you beat her.

Allister’s Rewards

Successfully defeating Allister will reward you Ghost Badge, TM77, Ghost-type uniform, and the ability to catch up to level 40 Pokemon in the wild.
