Repels are not only useful in keeping Pokemon from appearing, but also in hunting. A special technique of hunting using Repels (or Super or Max Repels) is known as Repel Trick.
For example, if we want to use the Repel Trick for Gible on the Moon, we must use a Repel and the Pokemon's level in the first slot of our party must be in the range of 24-33. This will avoid the other Pokemon in the area and till the Repel's effect wears off, the only Pokemon we might encounter will be Gible. To check details about a certain Pokemon's Repel Trick, use the command ^repel <Pokemon> in #bot-commands channel of the official Discord Chat of PRO and the Reborn bot will display information regarding it. Take note that not every repel will guarantee a battle, therefore you have to be patient.
If a Pokémon with the Synchronize ability encounters a wild Pokémon, there is a 50% chance that the game will force it to have the same Nature as the Pokémon with this Ability. Since this will enable us to increase or chances of catching a Pokemon with our desired nature, this technique is commonly used when Repel Trick-ing.
False Swipe is a restrained attack that prevents the target from fainting. The target is left with at least 1 HP. Even if this attack is used repeatedly when the Pokemon is at 1 HP, the Pokemon will not be killed. False Swipe Pokemon with the moves Spore/Sleep Powder, and Thunder Wave/Stun Spore increase our chances of catching since status plays a major role in catching Pokemon.
If your desired Pokemon is a Ghost-Type, then you may get a Smeargle or a Golduck with the move Soak. This will turn the Pokemon into a Water type and will allow you to use False Swipe on the Ghost-type afterwards.
The team can be set up in two methods.
- Method: Synchronize Pokemon at Required Level
Fort this method, your Synchronize Pokemon has to be at the required level and place it at your first slot. It must be alive
