They were fairly easy to beat in Ruby & Saphire (Aggron use Iron Tail!) but in Emerald on the other hand...

I think that Tate & Liza are, in Emerald, the most difficult gym leaders of any pokemon game. What do you think? How did you fare against them in Emerald?

Claydol Lv. 41

Light Screen

Lunatone Lv42

Light Screen
Calm Mind

Xatu Lv. 41

Sunny Day
Confuse Ray
Calm Mind

Solrock Lv. 42

Sunny Day

The main problem is that Claydol. An Aggron or Manetric would win the battle easily if it wasn't for its Earthquake.

Tate and Liza are my most hated Gym Leaders. Of course, I won against them but it was hard. That time I had: Gyarados; Lairon; Blaziken; Breloom. I managed to win luckily thanks to Surf and Giga Drain. :D

EDIT: This was on Emerald, by the way.

I beat them fairly easy in both R/S and Emerald given they are stronger in Emerald but I am always vastly over leveled and I tend to have quite a few Dark types all it really takes is a good Sharpedo

Ugh, don't even get me started on them in Emerald!! It took me about a million goes to defeat them - so satisfying when it finally happened, though. I remember my Mightyena being pretty darn useful :bandit:

I beat her just with my Gardevior o_o
I just spammed Calm Mind since they basically kept spamming Stat Boosting moves and Hypnosis...
Shock Wave and Psychic murdered her team ^.^
i had Sceptile too, which was a bit helpful.

Surf is the answer to all your problems.

Three of their Pokemon are weak to Water, and when you've got two out at a time, even Gyarados' Surf gives them big problems.

For me, it was quite easy. I just used my over leveled Blaziken and a Sealeo to get the job done.

They never let me down!

Only battle I ever lost in Emerald was in Battle Frontier...

....although the fact that I always have an Absol helps a lot. Give it a moveset of Swords Dance, Slash, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, and you have a crit-hit SDBoltbeamer.

oh man,
oh man,
do I ever,
HATE those guys!

With my team at the time: Breloom, Manectric, Torkoal, Alteria, Alakazam, and a Marill for surfing.

Chanses are I opened with Alakazam/Manectric. When the earthquakes started coming my way, I would switched out for Alteria. He ended up tanking it for sure.

They were quite easy for me. Granted, i were pretty overleveled, but still easy. It was during my Triospecies Challenge, I had a Swampert, Lombre and Wigglytuff, all at level 45.

Swampert + Lombre, Muddy Water + Surf = epic win.

If you have ANY pokemon take out Xatu, and a pokemon with surf, you're set. Really, they're only that annoying if you let them set up (Or if you fight them in Emerald 386. *shudders*)

The hardest fight is Norman if you don't have something like Protect, a Lairon, or a CM Gardevoir that sets up on Spinda.

EDIT: Why Muddy water? It's no better than Surf...

Apparently they are fairly hated on the planet. But omg every time I restart the game this is where I get caught up In my opinion they are the hardest gym(in proportion to levels). My first time my Absol pulled it out of his "place where the sun don't shine" after my third try, and I still love him to this day for it.........

They were difficult, but that's why I liked them.

Claydol and Solrock have great movesets. :O

Overleveled Blaziken + lv.23 Surf slave = WIN

April 24th, 2010, 10:43 AM
Manetric using Shock Wave for Xatu && Swampert using Surf && Muddy Water on the others worked fine for me.
I realy didn't have too much trouble with this one myself.
Norman, on the other hand...=PP

>_> eww Tate & Liza. In R/S easy, Emerald a bit hard. I raised a Mightyena or a Gyarados. They did pretty fine. Might was about the high 30s, and Gyarados was mid 40s. I uber trained Gyarados. :3 or you can Randomly raise a Sharpedo(Super Rod).

It was hard for me as my Pokemon are always severely underleveled. Her Xatu and Claydol mostly wiped out my Pokemons...

Yeah. They were hard. At least it usually takes me the most tries to beat them... Now, which one is the boy again?
