How to Defeat Kieran in The Indigo Disk

Before you take on Kieran in a battle, you need to defeat the Elite Four of the Blueberry Academy. These battles are necessary to train you for the big fight, as the Elite Four are the toughest trainers you can fight against. Once you have defeated them, then you are ready to battle Kieran.

But not too quickly. Before you take Kieran on, you need to know about what Pokemon make up his team and their weaknesses. Kieran’s team consists of the following Pokemon:

PokemonType
DragoniteDragon/Flying
PolitoedWater
Porygon-ZNormal
GrimmsnarlDark/Fairy
IncineroarFire/Dark
HydrappleGrass/Dragon
Kieran’s Pokemon

The levels of the Pokemon in Kieran’s team are from 80 to 82, and they aren’t focused on a specific type, which makes him stronger than the Elite Four Pokemon. On top of that, each Pokemon is set up in a way that covers their own weaknesses.

Politoed, which is vulnerable to Electric-type attacks, holds an item called a Wacan Berry that halves the damage of the first Electric-type move. However, you will still be able to take Politoed down in two hits with an Electric-type move. Grimmsnarl is another Pokemon that uses the Focus Sash item so that you cannot knock it out with one hit.

Below is the list of Pokemon that will be useful for this battle:

  • Mewtwo
  • Ogerpon
  • Primarina
  • Iron Hands
  • Iron Thorns
  • Lapras
  • Sneasler
  • Glimmora
  • Mamoswine
  • Garchomp

In short, every Pokemon with Electric-type, Dragon-type, Psychic-type, Ice-type, and Fighting-type moves will work well for the double battle with Kieran.

Hydrapple is Kieran’s Tera Pokemon and will use Terastallize on it when he calls it in battle. To deal with that, you will need to use a Psychic-type Pokemon, like Mewtwo.

After you have defeated Kieran in the battle, you will become the new Blueberry League Champion. You will get some cash in Prize Money and a Master Ball for earning the title of the champion. Here are all the rewards you get for defeating all Special Coaches in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: The Indigo Disk.
