This page details how to beat Top Champion Geeta, aka La Primera. This is a part of the Pokémon League’s Champion Assessment and comes at the end of the Victory Road Walkthrough.
Below you’ll find information on Geeta’s Pokémon and what Pokémon you should bring in to counter hers!
Recommended Pokémon for Top Champion Geeta
Like most Champions in the past, Geeta has a varied team, so you can’t pick a few Types and call it a day. That said, good Types to bring include Fighting, Bug and Fire (all strong versus half of her team). Ground and Dark types wouldn’t go amiss either.
Her Pokémon are around Level 61, so you should aim to bring Pokémon of around Level 60+ into the fight.
If in doubt, here are some Pokémon suggestions:
- The Level 75 Tera at Dalizapa Passage, in the underground tunnel. A strong Fighting type that you can fairly easily catch. Try and sneak behind it to stun it for 1 turn. Immediately Paralyze it, then whack it until it returns to normal–at which point, you can catch it.
- Chi-Yu, a Dark and Fire Legendary, found in one of the sealed shrines.
- , a Poison and Dark type. Found at Socarrat Trail.
What Pokémon does Top Champion Geeta have?
|Glimmora||62||RockPoison (Tera Type: Rock )|
Geeta leads with Espathra, a pure Psychic type. So no need to strain your brain too much. It can use its signature move Lumina Crash, a Psychic type attack that lowers the opponent’s Special Defense stat by two stages.
Ghost and Bug types should be OK, if they’re fast and not weak to Fairy or Psychic. Otherwise they may not survive two hits of Lumina Crash.
Annoyingly, Veluza has a pretty robust move set. Try using Electric, Bug, Ghost or Dark types. As long as they’re not weak to Water or Psychic (especially Water), they should manage.
Oh, another mono type. This Ice type Pokémon can use , which deals more damage if the user has received damage on the same turn, to mess up Fire, Steel and Rock types, just in case and for additional coverage.
is slow, so it can easily take advantage of . Also, it has exceptional Defense: you absolutely want to combat it with special attackers. The Tera is great here, with its . Otherwise, any super-effective special attacker (Fire, Fighting, Steel or Rock) should suffice.
Kingambit is possibly Greeta’s scariest Pokémon, excluding her ace. This Dark and Steel type can use its signature move Kowtow Cleave, which deals impressive Dark damage and never misses. In addition, it’s got for Steel STAB, to wreck Fire types and to counter Fighting types.
Furthermore, its Supreme Overlord ability slightly boosts its Attack and Special Attack stats for each KO’d team member. If it’s the 5th Pokémon that Geeta sends out, it could be troublesome.
Despite , Fighting types are highly recommended since they deal quadruple damage. Kingambit is slow, so unless yours is even slower, you should one-shot it before taking damage (the Tera won’t break a sweat). Otherwise, Ground types are a solid choice.
For her final Pokémon, Geeta will send out Glimmora and Terastallize it as the earliest opportunity. It will become a pure Rock type, boosting its Rock attacks further while retaining its Poison STAB.
After the Battle
Demolish the crystallized flower and the title of Champion is yours! Outside, Nemona will demand a real Pokémon battle now that you’re both Champions. However, you only just beat the Pokémon League, so now’s not the time for a battle.
When you’re ready though, head to the central plaza of Mesagoza for your final battle with Nemona!
