    Set Mode is a setting on the game's options, Level Cap 45 means the pokemon you use in battle can never exceed level 45
    DanielARP 1 Jan 2021 18:40
    Single Session means you have to do to beat everyone in one playing session (without turning off or resetting the emulator)

    Oh boy, i wasted SO much time trying to do that without super effective moves >.> i feel betrayed now xD
    Lipe33 24 May 2021 18:01
    can you exceed the level cap once you actually start fighting will?
    CanadianLooni 29 Jan 2022 17:37
    This was rough.

    Who needs skill when you have an absurd level of X item abuse, amirite?
    ElectricPenny48 8 Jun 2022 01:27
    45 is a bit insane given how much xp you get through the fights
    BananaBaller 10 Jun 2022 19:57
    I beat it with pokémon under lvl 45 but it wasn't in a single session since I died meaning I didn't get the chievo sadly. :(

    without reset? it means (for example), if i reach in Bruno without chances to progress, the only way to try again is losing a battle. that's it?
    Zealord 9 Jul 2022 19:53
    suffered!
    i win with
    - Umbreon
    - Gyarados
    - Pinsir
    - Lapras
    - Heracross
    - Typholosion
    all in level 40. Lots of x itens.
    remember: in one complete run, without reset or turn off emulator since beginning

    Very easy way to cheese this achievement. Buy a bunch of revives. Have a party with a slowish Pokemon that knows U-Turn with high HP, a pokemon who knows explosion, and any 4 pokemon. Buy an insane amount of revives.

    You could theoretically do this with every Pokemon in the E4. U-Turn at full health into Explosion, bring in a random Pokemon, revive the previous Pokemon, die/switch to U-Turn, repeat.

    since the level cap of others cheevos is the same of the highest level of the opponent, this one should be lvl 50, since the highest lvl pokémon is Lance's Dragonite, in Lvl 50... this cheevo is unfair! haha

    The level cap does seem cruel until you realise being 5 levels blow is the trade-off for being allowed to use super effective attacks and items

    This one is so tough without X items, I went through at least 50 potions and a ton of revives. If you're like me and went through the game with a bunch of Pokemon that you can't/don't want to evolve (Kadabra, Growlithe, etc), go box them and get a Mamoswine, Lapras, or something like that instead, it's NOT worth the trouble
    baphxyz 8 Apr 2023 01:51
    Pretty simple, actually, once I got a Lapras to counteract Lance's Dragonite. My team was:
    - lapras
    - hypno
    - ampharos
    - umbreon
    - heracross
    - feraligatr
    GodricZero 10 May 2023 14:20
    Tip: buy some revital herbs (Goldenrod Tunnel on Saturday and Sunday)
    My Team:
    Typhlosion 41
    Ampharos 42
    Espeon 41 (Choice Lens)
    Gyarados 41 (Nevermeltice to boost Ice Fang)
    Heracross 41
    Ho-oh 45
    SonicRanticoot 26 May 2023 04:36
    Lance is the only part that makes this even remotely hard. If you have a Psychic type, used the Shadow Ball TM on it just give it the Choice Specs and it beats Wilt and Bruno for free (I had an Espeon). Koga and Karen are slightly trickier but doable enough.
    Nhekno 31 Oct 2023 15:58
    My team:
    - Ampharos 39 (Magnet)
    - Lapras 39 (Never-Melt Ice)
    - Crobat 39
    - Feraligatr 39 (Mystic water)
    - Espeon 39 (Choice Specs and Shadow Ball)
    - Dragonair 39
    Espeon carries heavily for the first 3 fights, the rest can be done with some planning and tons of revival herbs.
