[SUN/MOON] Battle Tree Guide
#1
Hello everyone! Smile

I am writing this guide to help people with Battle Tree.

For anyone who does not know what is Battle Tree, Battle Tree is similar to Battle Maison, a building where you battle and you obtain high streaks and earn BP items to obtain rare items, useful for competitive battling such as Focus Sash, Life Orb, etc.

But there is a problem, Battle Tree is insane hard as compared to Battle Maison because of these reasons:
* Mega Evolutions
* Z-Moves
There are even people saying it is impossible to reach 100 and 200 to obtain Lansat and Starf berries. Sad

In Battle Tree, there is 3 types of Battles, Singles, Doubles, and Multis.

Singles:
Use the Truant+Entrainment Durant+ Set Up sweeper strategy, I don't need to explain that much for Singles thanks to Collector Togami, a Youtuber, here is his video on Battle Tree Singles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVwoQ0q-5u4 (IMPORTANT!!!! MUST WATCH!!!!)

Sample Durant set:
Durant @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Truant
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 172 HP / 108 Def / 228 Spe
- Entrainment
- X-Scissor
- Iron Head
- Aerial Ace

Togami uses Scolipede as set-up sweeper, but there are many more set-up sweepers, such as:

Mega Gyaradoes (Dragon Dance), Cloyster (Shell Smash), Blaziken (Hone Claws and Speed Boost), Drapion (Acupressure), etc

Doubles:
Double is easier than Singles, I will list out some notable Pokemons that is decent in Battle Tree Doubles.

Greninja @ Focus Sash
Ability: Protean
Nature: Timid
EVs: 6 HP / 252SpAtk / 252 Spe
- Mat Block
- Ice Beam
- Dark Pulse
- Grass Knot
Greninja is popular in Battle Tree Doubles for one reason, its signature move, Mat Block. With its high base speed, it has the highest chance of going first setting up Mat Block, allowing your other Pokemon to have a free turn to set-up/attack. Ice Beam, Dark Pulse and Grass Knot is for coverage. In Battle Tree, most of the stronger Pokemons are weak to Ice, Dark, and Grass. For example, all the Forces of Natures are weak to Ice Beam. Grass Knot takes out Regirock, Swampert, Gastrodon (very bulky). Dark Pulse takes out Alakazam, Lake Guardians, Latias and Latios.

NOTE: Do not use Grass Knot on Carracostas, there is a set which has Weakness Policy and Sturdy. He will swept your team easily with Aqua Jet!

NOTE: Be careful of Thunder Wave users! Examples are Electrode, Latias, etc.

Manectric @ Manectite
Ability: Lightning Rod
Nature: Timid
EVs: 6 HP / 252SpAtk / 252 Spe
- Thunderbolt
- Flamethrower
- Volt Switch
- Protect
This Manectric is popular for two reasons, Lighting Rod and Intimidate. In case if you guys are unfamiliar with Battle Maison/Tree. Thunder Wave is a huge problem. Lightning Rod not only solve the problem of Thunder Waves, but it boosts the power of your Electric-Type Moves.

Multi:
Hardest of the three, if possible, do it with a friend. Or do Singles to 40+ and get a veteran, some veterans are better. Choose veterans with, birds, Eon Duo, Swords of Justice or Genies, they are better partners, don't choose those with Regis!

Some extra tips:
* Only use 100 accuracy attacks, at high streaks, Battle Tree will cheat and you will miss a lot.
* AI tends to use the move that hit your Pokemons hardest my percentage of health.
* AI does not have the tendency switch out their Pokemons unless all their moves cannot hit your Pokemons.
* AI will learn from their mistake, for example using Thunderbolt on Lightning Rod Seaking will get a boost then they will switch their attack.
* At high streaks, AI will analyse your team and use your team's weakness. For example, bombarding you with other weather setters if you use weather-based teams.

Battle Tree threat list:

Ranking at Number 1 is Walrein. With its EVs investment in Def and SpDef, carries Bright Powder with Rest and Sleep Talk. Well that is not the real threat. The real threat is the two other moves it has, Fissure and Sheer Cold. At high streaks, it rarely misses. A monster in Singles.

Ranking at Number 2 is Zapdos. Same EVs investment and item as Walrein, but the difference is the Double Team and Charge Beam that will turn this into a monster. This Zapdos can be countered by Clear Smog or Haze in Doubles. A good counter is Gastrodon, walls this monster completely.

Ranking at Number 3 is the rest of the set-up sweepers, again, this can be countered the same method as Zapdos and yeah.

I will try to keep this updated. If you have any more suggestions, feel free to comment below! Smile

NOTE: There will be a huge update after the release of USUM.

AcuDrapion sucks. Wild Charge on MMane sucks. Usually even Hone Claws on Blaziken sucks because it gets SDance, but if the game rlly turn HJK into a suicide I trust you. That said you should absolutely mention our god Volcarona and same Dragon types DDancers. (Dragonite and FlyniuMence at least)

What about that Durant set's spread and why Aerial Ace?

Oops, looks like I made some typo errors. Lol

Regarding acupressure and hone claws, accuracy will become important when you encounter Brightpowder, such as the Zapdos, which ended most Battle Tree professionals hundreds streaks.

Volcarona is not a good choice because of its STAB, Bug and Fire. Most Pokemons in Battle Tree are Water-Type, or Flying once you reached high streaks.

But be careful of Lycanrocs. Drapions have been the safest but one battle takes 30-40 turns.

If you are just rushing for 50 instead of aiming for hundreds, a simple Dragon Dance/Swords Dance/Nasty Plot user will do. But if you are aiming for hundreds, accuracy is very important, Hone Claws, Acupuncture (takes forever)
