Strategy

After Tapu Bulu uses Grass Impact in battle, the field will become Grassy Terrain. Grassy Terrain increases the power of Grass-type moves and replenishes HP when using Grass-type moves. A good way of dealing with Grassy Terrain is to use interference such as Flinching, Confusion, or Trapped or inflicting Status Conditions like Poison or Bad Poison.

However, once the interference wears off, resistance to it will be strengthened. So try to only use interference whil Grassy Terrain is in effect and focus on preventing your opponent from recovering HP. Tapu Bulu also uses powerful physical attack moves, so reducing its Attack will reduce the damage you take.

HP Bar 1

  • Your opponent is weak against Flying-type moves, so use them to do more damage than the Grassy Terrain's HP recovery
  • You can lessen the damage of Tapu Bulu's powerful physical attacks by using Dawn & Torterra's X Defense All to raise the Defense of all allied Syn pairs
  • You can use Kahili & Toucannon's Second Wind! to guarantee a critial hit on your next attack. Try following this up with a Sync Move for massive damage
  • On Hard difficulty or higher, physical attack moves become less effective when your HP is at half or less. When that happens, you can launch a special attack.
