    What does it mean 'set mode'? How do you do that? I beaten Falkner with pokemon under level 13 without super effetive attacks and still didn't get the achievement.

    You can set Battle Style to Set in the options menu. What it does is remove the option of switching out a pokemon every time you defeat one of the opponent's pokemon

    Thank you

    The achievement didn't pop for me, all my team is below 13, and never used a SE Attack, i only used status moves with onix, butterfree and rattata for attack. I tried the fight 3 times now
    Magiquito 30 Aug 2021 15:48
    And I was in set mode too, I made sure of that

    Just found out SE Attacks include RECEIVING SE Attacks, is this intended? If yes why isn't specified in the achievement?

    I just did this challenge and my highest pokemon was lvl 12. I was on set mode and didn't get any SEs and I got one crit and I didn't get the achievement. What am I doing wrong?

    Is the level cap checked before or after the battle? i.e. If I were to go in with a lv13 pokemon, have it level up during the battle, would that still count?
    orchidcnr 30 Apr 2023 00:34
    no, this achievement doesnt pop if it levels up during battle. even if it levels up after defeating the final pokemon it doesnt pop, unlike in pokemon red
    grafious 26 May 2023 16:22
    It appears Magiquito is correct. If receiving attack is super effective it this achievement does not pop.

    Great, another poorly programmed level cap achievement. Reaching lvl 14 from defeating pidgeotto and the achievement didn't trigger even though the fight was over. Not gonna bother with this crap any further.
    akuram 1 Nov 2023 21:39
    The onix is a good option too, in lvl 7 he can kill the first pidgey and low the def of the pidgeotto or even kill

    Turns out you can't use Pokemon whose typing is "super effective" against the opponent Pokemon as well (even if you don't use a move that is "super effective against the bird pokemon). I was using Onix against Falker (though the only move I was using was Bind and Tackle). The achievement wouldn't pop until I got ride of Onix. So I just used a level 12 Dunsparce instead (with Yawn and Rage). He was more than enough to defeat Falkner by himself.

    Worked for me lol
