Level 50 Progress Defeating Rocket Leaders With 2500 CP
Ahoy! Here is my progress update for my road to level 50. I still had to do the excellent throws and defeat a Rocket Leader 3 times using a party with a max CP of 2500 per Pokémon.
I decided to record a video of defeating Arlo for this task so you can see it getting completed!
Earlier this month I already defeated Arlo twice since the lineup changes to the Team GO Rocket Leaders, Giovanni and to some of the Grunts.
That time I used a party consisting of my Swampert that is rank 1 for the Ultra League. Second I used my Clone Charizard that I caught the first time these Clone Pokémon were available in the game. Which means it's caught from a Raid, I don't know the exact stats out of my head. Long ago I already powered it up as close to 2500 CP as possible to sometime use in the Ultra League back then. Last but not least I used my 100% IV Escavalier that I've tried a few times in Ultra League during this season. It worked quite decent there and also worked well against Arlo so far.
However this time, Arlo had the worst lineup for my team. He was using both Salamance AND Dragonite, my Swampert does some damage to it with Hydro Cannon and Charizard with Dragon Claw, but not enough to defeat him.
After a few tries, I switched my Escavalier out for one of my Sylveon, luckily this one was still below 2500 CP!
With that Sylveon in the party it went so much better and I can provide this video showing that the task "for defeating a Rocket Leader 3 times with a party of 2500 CP or less" gets completed!
Usually I prefer to do Sierra with the new lineups, but I didn't find Sierra today and the balloon you can get between 6 pm and midnight brought Arlo so that was a great opportunity!
Now all I have left to do is finish the excellent throws as I already have the exp! Maybe it'll be before the end of the month, maybe early December, we shall see! Maybe I'll try to do a video on that too!
