Brassius’ first Pokémon

The first Pokémon you will fight against will be a Petilil, a Grass-type. Petilil should not be too much of a threat, especially if you can optimize Fire-type attacks. It will be level 16.

Brassius’ second Pokémon

The second Pokémon you will fight against while battling Brassius will be Smoliv, another Grass-type. You will want to follow the same strategy as the previous encounter, sticking to the same or similar Pokémon. Smoliv is also going to be level 16.

Brassius’ third Pokémon

The final Pokémon Brassius will use in battle will be Sudowoodo, a Rock-type. Despite it being a Rock-type, Brassius will use a Tera Form and have it become a Grass-type. It will have access to its typical Rock-based attack, so some Fire and Flying-type Pokémon might not be safe, but you can still use Ice, Poison, or Bug-types against it. Sudowoodo will be level 17.

Upon defeating Sudowoodo in its Tera form, you will earn the Grass-type Gym Leader Badge.
