All you need is a strong water type and a dark type like absol!! Psychic types don't stand a chance against dark types!!

A pokemon with the move explosion Will work really good to, you just have to revive them.
Guest said: 9th Aug 2016 | REPORT
absol is kinda horrible in rse because dark type moves are special attack. but stab and EVs offset this. Right now I'm using Girafarig with crunch and thunderbolt to counter Xatu. Then maybe use a fast or tanky special attacker with STAB Surf

Well you are going to have a hard time beating them with a fighting type. There Pokemon type is psychic. There biggest weakness is darkness. Three of their Pokemon are weak against water (Solrock, Lunatone, and Claydol.) If you are having a hard time attacking first get a Pokemon with good speed stats. Such as Ninjask. Try to use a water type and a dark type in the double battle.

Buddy do't use fighting types psychic is good on fighting. Catch a poochyena and grow it up to be a powerful mightyena, then get an absol and train it up aswell. Tate and Liza won't know what hit them.

Well, their weakness is not fighting for one, and their main weakness is water so attacking with water and grass moves should work. If you started with Mudkip and he is at least a Swampert. Using water for that battle if Xatu is starting to pwn your grass type.

They use Psychic types, which are a pain. Bring somebody with Ghost moves, or a Psychic of your own. Gardevoir is a great choice. You should put good moves on your pokemon. Make sure you also have a Water type to take out Solrock and Lunatone. An Electric type is good for Xatu.

Using carbos on your Pokemon would help?
I would have any electric Pokemon, such as a Raichu, that knows thunderbolt, and a water Pokemon, such as Gyrados, that knows surf.
Use Raichu for Xatu and Gyrados for Lunatone, Solrock, and Claydol.
Raichu and Gyrados are just examples, however, and you can use any electric and water Pokemon you like, as long as they would know thunderbolt (or any electric attack) and surf (or any water attack).
Again, use carbos on your water and electric pokemon! Have back-up electric and water Pokemon, too!

You could try using Fire type moves or other moves that are greatest at knocking down hp.

Guest answered: Added 17th Jul 2010, ID #341088

dont use fighting use dark like mighteyana and use any water type it really doesnt matter which one. And they need to be in the high thirties or higher. A ground pokemon cant hurt because the solrock likes to use earthquake a lot

one does not simply kill a Pokemon but i understand mossdeep is the hardest gym to beat

no its not tough. you need water and dark. i bet them in once
Guest answered: Added 22nd Jun 2011, ID #414805

I highly recommend using a absol at level 35 it will know bite. Gyrados is even better it can learn surf and other water attacks and can learn bite. Bite is a dark type move therefore being super effective against the duo. With these two Pokemon at level 35 I defeated the pair in 3 min.

Guest answered: Added 5th Jul 2011, ID #418906

Dark type moves are probably the Psychic types greatest weakness. Take a Dark Pokemon like Absol or Mightyena with you. A strong Water such as Gyrados type is also useful for Lunatone, Solrock, and Claydol. Maybe take a good strong Electric Pokemon with you too for Xatu since Electric is super good on Bird types.

Guest answered: Added 2nd Aug 2011, ID #428249

The mossdeep city gym is the hardest gym by far. I got lucky and got Pokerus (search it) and leveled up super
Fast so battle lots of wild Pokemon and good luck

Guest answered: Added 8th Jan 2012, ID #471635

You should use really strong dark and water types. Also be sure to bring an electric for xatu. Hope you win.

Try to use a mightyena psychic does not effect it but be sure to bring a bunch of awakening cause the lunatone knows hypnosis o_0

Ive beaten them using (strategy) XD
Blaziken , mightyena and even brelloom.. . . And other extras .
I just used soda pops and revives hahaha. . That gym is a pain.

Guest answered: Added 24th Jun 2014, ID #629822

Dark types are your best bet. Also, a water or grass type will be super effective against 3 of the 4 pokemon. However, xatu will use sunny day and the other 3 know solarbeam which will be a one turn attack. Catch a fast electric type like manetric and knock out xatu before it uses sunny day. Good luck!

I lvled up my mighteyna and absol both to 39 and had the blue flute which awakens Pokemon without having to buy a lot of awakening. It took nearly all of the pp for bite for both Pokemon and took forever but I won using only the 2. Good luck that gym is a pain.

Guest answered: Added 23rd Aug 2017, ID #692279

You have to have maybe fire type or water type

Guest answered: Added 5th Jun 2019, ID #703742

If you get rare 🍬 cheat get all your Pokemon to level 💯

Guest answered: Added 29th Nov 2019, ID #707452

Fighting type Pokemon are weak to psychic type.... Must be why you are losing.

Some of their Pokemon have rock sub types so you can exploit that by using water Pokemon.

Generally, Psychic type Pokemon are weak to dark, ghost and bug type Pokemon so if you want an easier time defeating them, use these 3 types of Pokemon.
