    Trevenant is a Pokémon that many Pokémon Go players have been eagerly awaiting to arrive at the mobile game. It made its debut during the Halloween Mischief event, with Phantump appearing in the wild. Once you've caught enough of them to receive enough candy, you should evolve Phatump into Trevenent, and is this Pokémon any good? In this guide, we will share how to best use Trevenant in Pokémon Go and what makes it good.



    Trevenant is a Grass and Ghost type Pokémon. It is weak against Dark, Fire, Flying, Ghost, and Ice-type moves, but is resistant to Electric, Fighting, Grass, Ground, Normal, and Water-type attacks. It has a maximum CP of 2.559, an attack of 170, a defense of 133, and a stamina of 168. Since its maximum CP is just over 2.500, it is best used in the Great and Ultra leagues. This is not a Pokémon for use in the Master League.

    When used in PvP, Trevenant can battle many of the best Pokémon in both the Grand and Ultra League. For the Great League, he can beat Medicham, Azumarill, Galarian Stunfisk and even Skarmory. Using it in the Ultra League you can counter Swampert, Lapras, Syvelon and Lugia.

    The best moveset to teach Trevenant is the fast moving shadow claw and the charged shadow ball and seed bomb. Of the two charged moves, the shadow ball is better, but the seed bomb is a decent Grass-type attack that can be used to attract an opponent's shields.



    What's important about Trevenant is that it's releasing a time when not many of the widely used Pokémon were to expect an incredibly fast moving Grass and Ghost type Pokémon with low energy Ghost and Grass type moves. The Ghost-type attack will specifically target other Ghost types and the popular Psychic-types that often appear in both leagues. The seed bomb move is an excellent attack for bulkier Ground, Rock, and Water-types.

    Overall, Trevenant is a powerful Pokémon making its debut. However, its overall ranking will change over time and will decrease in popularity as other players adapt to it. Regardless, it's a solid introduction for Pokémon Go players who want a unique Pokémon to use in their next Battle League fight.
