Lorelei is the first Elite Four enemy in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee. The Pokemon Lorelei has are almost all Water and Ice types, and they’re weak to Electricity and Grass. Still, considering that Lorelei is one of the final bosses, defeating her might be a bit of a challenge. So, here’s our Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee How to Beat Lorelei guide to hopefully help you out.
How to Beat Elite Four Lorelei in Pokemon Let’s Go?
To beat Lorelei, one of the Elite Four in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee, all you basically need is an Electric-type or Grass-type Pokemon. This is because four out of her five Pokemon are massively weak to Electric attacks. We got through the whole fight with just our starter Pikachu and, like, two healing items. If you have Eevee instead of Pikachu, then use it with Buzzy Buzz and Bite attacks. Also, a Jolteon or some such Electric-type Pokemon will do wonders against Lorelei’s entire roster. The only possible outlier here is Jynx, really. Let’s get into the nitty-gritty.
The first Pokemon Lorelei used against us was a level 51 Dewgong. He’s vulnerable to Electricity, so that’s what you should use against him. The second was a level 51 Jynx, which is the odd-one-out. It’ll use Lovely Kiss and Ice Punch against you, and isn’t particularly vulnerable to Electricity. Rather, Jynx’s weaknesses are Fire, Bug, Steel, Rock, Ghost, and Dark. This is why an Eevee with Buzzy Buzz and Bite is an awesome combo against Lorelei; Bite is a Dark attack, and Buzzy Buzz is an electric attack, so all your bases are covered. That said, we easily got rid of Jynx using Pikachu.
The rest of Lorelei’s Pokemon are all vulnerable to Electricity and Grass, but let’s go through it step by step. The third battle is against a level 51 Cloyster. We one-shot it with our starter Pikachu, so that was barely a thing. The fourth battle will be against either Lapras or Slowbro, apparently. For us, the fourth was a Level 52 Lapras. Again, use either Electric or Grass damage to dispatch it. Sure, it hits hard, but nothing you can’t survive with enough healing items.
The fifth and final battle for us was against a level 51 Slowbro. The battle is exactly the same as the previous two. Use Electric or Grass attacks, and heal as necessary. This is the end of your first encounter with Lorelei. If you want a rematch, she’ll also throw in an Alola Sandslash, level 61. It’s stupidly weak to Fire and Fighting attacks (four times as weak, in fact), so use whichever Pokemon you have that does those types of damage.
