Kingdra is Water/Dragon type, so it's only weakness is Dragon. Most attacks are normal effective. Best way to defeat Kingdra is to use a status move such as Thunder Wave, Hypnosis, Confuse Ray, and a few others. Your Jynx and Flaffy can learn the aforementioned attacks, so train them a bit more. Good luck.

I agree with Glaceon. Also I would try to catch the Legendary in your game, since you asked here I assume it's lugia. That will greatly add to your team's overall abilities because the Aeroblast attack, Lugia's signature, is strong and has a high critcal hit ratio. Training would help a lot too, as you have a few Pokemon who seem to be under leveled for this part of the game. I would think your Pidgeotto and Flaffy should evolve to their fully evolved forms of Pidgeot and Ampharos. That will help you as well

Try inflicting a status effect on her Kingdra. If anything use a dragon type move if you have one.

Judging by the fact you still have flaffy, and pidgeotto you need to get your levels up. That is probably the best way to beat her with your team. I mean waaaayyy up. Try combining paralysis and confusion together against kingdra making the 'parafusion' which is difficult to break through. All things considered, she is a hard trainer. Sometimes you need some luck, like I did. I killed her kingdra one hit KO with kadabra's psychic on a critical hit while he was my last Pokemon and only had 8hp left. So don't give up!

Take your Ampharos to Lv 39 and your Gyrados to 35.
evolve your Eevee into either Vaporeon or Jolteon and make it lv 35-37

Choose some good moves for all of them(few status moves suggested) and youll beat her easily.

Use a lapras and teach him ice beam avalanche and give him a Nevermeltice. Avalanche is bp 120 when it attacks after the foe, and on a lapras, it always does. Kills dragonairs in 1 hit.
Any thunder type move will kill Gyrados.
Dragon moves destroy Kingdra, but after that, you just need strong moves/good pokemon/good ev's/and STAB - essenatially a strog team, and you'l win.

My team is typhlosion, togekiss, glaceon, bellossom, and poliwrath all at lvl 37 and i still cant beat her. (got a water stone and shiny stone from my pearl game and traded eevee to pearl to get glaceon) it seems hopeless, she keeps getting critical hits on hydro pump which took out everyone but poliwrath who has water absorb. I think i'll go catch a flaaffy and train to an ampharos. My advice is electric, dragon, grass, and ice moves and hyper potions and revival herbs (get on certain days in goldenrod tunnel)

I've beaten Clair two times. Try evolving your Flaffy into an Ampharos so it can learn Thunderpunch and you could even buy Thunder at the Goldenrod City Department Store. If you can, catch a Swinub (and evolve if you like,)or a Jynx and teach it some decent ice moves to attack Kingdra. I also suggest leveling up your Pokemon if they are a lower level than 30.

If you have an ice type since thats super effective on water and dragon I suggest you get one

Guest answered:
Added 24th Oct 2012, ID #546509

I only used two Pokemon to beat her,
Magneton Lvl 45
Magnet Bomb
Thunder Wave

Feraligatr Lvl 42 (Please note that my Feraligatr is EV trained and his attack is at max. You might have to level him up a bit more - he was at 115 attack during the battle.
Ice Fang

What I did is throw Magneton out first. Discharge will take care of Gyrados. He'll faint, and she will always switch in Dragonair. Switch in Feraligatr and Ice Fang will take Dragonair out in one hit if you have 115 attack. When Dragonair faints, she'll send in the other, identical Dragonair, so repeat.
Once they are both taken out, she'll switch in Kingdra. Switch in Magneton. He will be able to take a few Hydro Pumps, and hopefully one of the discharges you pull off will paralyze. If he faints, Feraligatr can handle the rest.

A lot of the problem is how under leveled a lot of you are. You can not go in there with all of your Pokemon below 32 and expect to win. You will have to train a little bit. The guest who used Jynx and Gyrados is either lying or his Pokemon are EV trained. It's not a matter of how to knock them out - ice attacks will work. Jynx nor Gyrados will not outspeed Kingdra who will just Dragon Pulse them to death. Even an Sp Atk EV trained Jynx would need more than Ice Beam to OHKO Clair.

I used just my dragonair that I got as a dratini from goldenrod city game corner which made beating her easy.

My team:
Typhlosion lv45
Feraligatr lv 45
Meganium lv 45
Ampharos lv45
Crobat lv47
Dragonair lv49

Personally I like curse corner from gengar, but for you my suggestion is to try and paralyze kingdra then confuse it. Most likely that will buy you some free turns, take that time to use stat boosting moves, or heal, then go in for a direct assault. Hope you get that badge Clair is much harder than Whitney in my opinion.

When I went and defeated Clair on my third go I only had my Ampharos and Gyarados (plus my Typhlosion (lvl - 62) as backup). My Ampharos was lvl - 47 and my Gyarados was lvl - 41/42. I only used Ampharos and Gyarados, didn't even need to use Typhlosion or any others.

I used moves such as:

Thunder shock.
Thunder punch.
Thunder wave.

Dragon rage.
Ice fang.
Hydro pump.

Plus I made sure I had at least 1-2 revives in my bag.
Hope this helps!
