AI Sada Battle Strategy in Pokémon Scarlet

AI Sada will have the following team in Pokémon Scarlet:

Pokemon Level Guy Weaknesses
Sliding wing 66 Bug/Fight Fairy, Fire, Flying and Psychic
scream queue 66 Fairy/Psychic Poison, Psychic and Steel
gross cap 66 Grass / Dark Insect, Fairy, Fighting, Fire, Flying, Ice and Poison
Fluttering mane 66 Ghost/Fairy dark and ghost
sand crashes 66 Electrical/Ground Grass, Earth, Ice and Water
roaring moon 67 Dark dragon Insect, Dragon, Fairy, Fight and Ice

For the battle against AI Sada, you’ll want to make sure your team includes Pokémon with strong Bug, Fairy, and Flying-type moves, because these attacks are actually incredibly effective against three of her Pokémon. We also recommend including Poison and Dark-type Pokémon on your team.

Try to start the battle with the Flying type chosen as your lead Pokémon, as AI Sada will send out its Slither Wing first. Once that Pokémon is defeated, switch to your Poison type for Scream Tail and, when it falls, to your Bug or Fairy type Pokémon.

Flutter Mane can be defeated by your Ghost-type, while a strong Ground-type Pokémon can take care of Sandy Shocks. Although Sandy Shocks is partly Ground-type, we do not recommend using a Water-type Pokémon due to its Electric type.

Finally, Roaring Moon can be easily defeated in one hit by a strong, Terastalized, Fairy-type Pokémon.

After defeating AI Sada, you will face your final challenge in The Way Home story.

Our The Teal Mask walkthrough will help you complete the first part of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC, but make sure you know how to start it first. When visiting Kitakami it is a good idea to know how to get Sinistea, Dipplin and The Loyal Three. Our Pokémon Scarlet and Violet walkthrough can take you through the main campaign, including The First Day of School, Victory Road, Starfall Street, Path of Legends, and, when you’re ready, The Way Home and the final boss. Elsewhere, we can help with the normal gym test secret item menu, version differences, the best scarlet and violet starter, XP farming, shiny Pokémon, and learning to fly, swim, climb, and run. When it comes to individual Pokémon, we can help with Gimmighoul, Ditto, Bellibolt, Pawmot, Scovillain, Frigibax, Brambleghast, Annihilape, Farigiraf, Dudunsparce, Lycanrock, Armarouge, and Ceruledge.

AI Turo Battle Strategy in Pokémon Violet

AI Turo will have the following team in Pokémon Violet:

Pokemon Level Guy Weaknesses
iron moth 66 Fire/Poison Earth, Psychic, Rock and Water
iron pack 66 Frozen water Electric, Fighting, Grass and Rock
iron hands 66 Fighting / Electric Fairy, Earth and Psychic
iron jugulis 66 Dark / Flying Fairy, Electric, Ice and Rock
iron thorns 66 Rock / Electric Fight, grass, land and water.
iron brave 67 Fairy / Fight Fairy, Flying, Poison, Psychic and Steel

When fighting AI Turo, you’ll want to make sure your team includes a strong Ground, Fairy, Psychic, and Rock-type Pokémon since, between these four types, you’ll cover the weaknesses of all of the robot’s Pokémon.

We recommend having the Ground type chosen as your lead Pokémon, as AI Turo will start the fight with Iron Moth, which is especially weak for this type. This will allow you to quickly knock out their first Pokémon!

Then you’ll want to switch to another Pokémon and save your Ground-type for Iron Thorns, which is also especially weak to Ground-types. By doing this, the rest of your team can focus on defeating AI Turo’s other Pokémon; just be sure to switch between Pokémon so you can take advantage of their type weaknesses.

Tinkaton is a good Fairy type option.

Once AI Turo is defeated, you will face the final challenge of The Way Home story.

Good luck defeating AI Sada or AI Turo!
