Some Pokémon are easier to defeat than others in teracrystal raids and this is the case with the monster that interests us in this new Pokémon Scarlet and Purple guide.
Metamorph Pokémon Scarlet and Purple: A raid unlike any other
Since the release of the games introducing the ninth generation, there are many creatures available in Teracrystal Raid, but one of them is much more special than the others. This monster is just Metamorph. Indeed, if you encounter him during a robbery, he will have the peculiarity of taking on the appearance of your Pokémon or the one who launches the raid thanks to the Imposter talent.
If the appearance of the latter changes, that’s not all since thenit also takes into account your stats and attacks as if it were using the Morphing ability. This means that if you start a raid with a fairly powerful Pokémon, you may have a hard time defeating it. Nevertheless, there are solutions to succeed in this fight very easily and this is what we will see in the rest of this guide.
Metamorph Pokémon Scarlet and Purple: Techniques to beat it easily
There are several methods to defeat the Morphing Pokémon easily, and if you don’t know about them, you might be surprised. First of all, you don’t need a Strategic Pokémon if you’re the one who starts the raid. So you don’t need to farm potions or other items to max out your IVs and EVs.
First method with Magikarp
The first option we offer you to defeat a Metamorph in a raid is touse a Level 1 Magikarp that only has the Dip ability. By doing this it will copy your Pokemon and will not be able to harm you as it only has Dip. Note, this technique is useful, but it may be necessary to have good partners online to succeed before the end of time. This depends on the level of the teracrystal raid.
Second method with Cognobidon
The second technique to beat Ditto is to have a Pokémon that only knows the Bellywink move because it sacrifices some of your HP’s to boost your attack to the max. You should know that the Ditto can also use it to deal damage. It remains only for your teammates (NPCs or players) to finish the fight by knocking him out thanks to monsters that can do a lot of damage.
Among the Pokémon that can have Bellywhisper from level 1, there is Azurill and Rongourmand. On the other hand, it will be necessary to use a Hearty Leaf so that one of the parents learns to pass it on to the baby. Note that you also have a Makuhita level 25 to do this technique, even if it takes much longer to win the fight with it. This option remains especially possible in multiplayer, where a level 1 Pokémon allows you to go it alone.
And there you have it, these are the two tricks to easily overcome Metamorph in Pokémon Scarlet and Purple. That should also be noted skills like Explosion or Destruction don’t work in this exact case. Indeed, if you use only one of the attacks that are supposed to take down the Pokémon, Ditto will fail any attempt to use it.
