To be the greatest Pokémon trainer out there, one needs to have a deep and nuanced understanding of their and the opponent’s Pokémon. This includes both, their strengths and weaknesses. This is true for the first open-world RPGs in the 9th generation of the Pokémon game series, Scarlet and Violet, just as it has been true for the previous titles.
In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Quaquaval is a Water/Fighting type Pokémon and is the next step in the evolution of Quaxwell, who is in turn the evolution of Quaxly. Quaquaval is indeed a strong Pokémon to add to your collection, especially when you know how to use it well.
However, the strengths don’t mean anything when the opponent is easily able to exploit the weaknesses, which is why it’s important to know what they are. And on the other hand, every battle would be a losing battle when you do not know what attacks are effective when you’re up against Quaquaval.
The following are all the weaknesses that you can either exploit or be mindful of when you’re fighting against or fighting with Quaquaval.
All of these attacks deal 2x damage.
While that covers all the weaknesses, it’s also good to know what Quaquaval is strong against in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The general rule of thumb is that Quaquaval will be effective against any Pokémon that is weak against the Water and Fighting types. These include Bug, Dark, Fire, Ice, Rock, Steel, and Water.
In conclusion, no Pokémon, or at least the non-mythical ones, are invincible. With this knowledge, you can use Quaquaval’s greatest strengths and remember its weaknesses to avoid failures. But when you’re up against it, you can exploit its weaknesses as much as you can, to pave the way for a clear victory.
