This page offers a guide on the Nemona final battle boss fight with her at Mesagoza in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet as part of the Victory Road story path. You will get a glimpse at what the Nemona final team looks like, so you can strategize against the fight before hand. You will first need to defeat the Pokémon League and become a Champion to challenge her.
Nemona Final Battle Walkthrough
As usual Nemona has a varied team, so your team should also be varied. A Fighting type or two is highly recommended since they’re strong against half of Nemona’s team (more if you picked Fuecoco).
Her Pokémon are Level 65 to 66, so you should aim to bring Pokémon of around Level 65+ into the fight.
If in doubt, here are some Pokémon suggestions:
- Your starter fully evolved. Pretty much a no-brainer, since Nemona will use the starter that’s weak to yours. That said, if you benched your starter, don’t fret.
- The Level 75 Tera at Dalizapa Passage, in the underground tunnel. High level and a good all-rounder.
- The Level 75 Tera at the eastern edge of Paldea. High level with exceptional Attack.
Nemona’s Final Team
If you’re wondering what exactly Nemona’s final team is, we have provided you with a table reflecting the Pokémon, their level, and the types they are. Here you can prepare some Pokémon to counter theirs and form your strategy before heading in.
Ground or Fighting types would be perfect here, to deal super-effective damage and resist Stone Edge. A fast victory is advised, in case it sets up Stealth Rock. The Tera Lucario won’t break a sweat.
Amazingly, Nemona has a 1/100 three-segment Dudunsparce. Hers can use Hyper Drill for STAB, Drill Run to get through Steel types, Dragon Rush for… reasons and Coil to boost its Attack, Defense and Accuracy.
Again, you should use a Fighting type here. Another easy job for the Tera Lucario.
Did anybody else have trouble trying to evolve Pawmo into this? Anyway, Nemona’s Pawmot can use Double Shock for massive Electric STAB damage, but removes its Electric type afterwards, for powerful Fighting STAB, but lowers its defensive stats, to tickle Ground types and Quick Attack to try and attack first.
We recommend Psychic or Fairy types. Double Shock is a little dangerous, but after using it, Pawmot will lose its Electric STAB, making it less threatening.
Nemona will Terastallize her ace into a pure Fire type, further boosting its Fire attacks and retaining its Ghost STAB.
Water types, especially your starter–hopefully fully evolved into Quaquaval–are highly recommended. Besides dealing super-effective damage, it’s a good idea to find ways to mitigate the damage from Tera-boosted Torch Song.
Nemona will Terastallize her ace into a pure Grass type, further boosting its Grass attacks and retaining its Dark STAB.
Fire types are highly recommended. If using your starter Skeledirge, you may want to Terastallize it so it loses its Ghost weakness.
Nemona will Terastallize her ace into a pure Water type, further boosting its Water attacks and retaining its Fighting STAB.
This one’s a tough cookie. Grass types would’ve been ideal, but Ice Spinner can take a good chunk of their HP. Meanwhile Electric types will take the full brunt of Aqua Step, which isn’t ideal, especially since Quaquaval is likely to outspeed you afterwards.
Your starter Meowscarada is also susceptible to STAB Brick Break, although you can Terastallize to remove the Fighting weakness.
If you’re stuck, try grabbing the Tera from Socarrat Trail. You can use its Trop Kick to deal super-effective damage and lower Quaquaval’s Attack at the same time. Most likely, Quaquaval will try and use Ice Spinner or Aerial Ace, but you can Terastallize to remove your weakness. After one Trop Kick, Quaquaval should be less dangerous.
After the Fight
Congratulations, Nemona will stop hounding you for a battle… for 10 seconds anyway!
Afterwards, you’ll need to complete the Path of Legends and Starfall Street story paths to unlock the Area Zero story. This concludes the Nemona final battle and team walkthrough. Good luck on beating Nemona yourself!
