Below is a guide to help you go up against this powerful Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trainer in the final battle.

When battling Lycanroc, you are advised to exploit its Rock-type weakness. In both Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, monsters proficient in Fighting, Grass, Ground, Steel, and Water-type moves are found in abundance. These Pokemon can deal a lot of damage to Lycanroc. Those who have picked either Quaxly or Sprigatito as their starter Pokemon can use them during this part of the battle.

For Pawmot, you are advised to use creatures that share Fairy, Ground, and Psychic typing. When battling Goodra, using powerful Dragon, Fairy, and Ice-type moves can easily inflict serious damage on it. Nemona's team also has an Orthworm, but it is significantly weak to Fighting, Fire, and Ground-type Pokemon, which provides enough room to defeat it if you pick Fuecoco or Armarougein.

Dudunsparce stands out among all the fighters in Nemona's team because it only has one weakness. However, this weakness is relatively easy to exploit. If you have Quaxly as your starter fighter in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, its evolution Quaquaval can easily defeat Dudunsparce with Fighting-type moves. If you don't have this starter, any powerful Fighting-type like Annihilape, Pawmot, or Lucario will suffice.


As the battle nears its end, Nemona will use the terastallized form of her starter Pokemon. You are advised to use the terastallized form of your starter Pokemon as well, and if you're in a situation where you can't do so, you can use any powerful fighter on your roster that can exploit the weaknesses of Nemona's starter. Once you manage to defeat Nemona in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the storyline of Victory Road will come to an end.
