How to Catch Alpha Garchomp

There are two ways to catch an Alpha Garchomp in this game.

  • By Battling
    • As the name suggests you can catch it by battling it and lowering its health. Once it is low enough throw a Poke ball at it. Since it is of Ground Dragon-type, you should use any of these Pokemon to counter it:
      • Glalie
      • Froslass
      • Dialga
      • Palkia
      • Giratina
      • Sylveon
      • Gardevoir
      • Goodra
      • Togekiss
      • Walrein
      • Clefable
      • Mamoswine
      • Abomasnow
      • Enamorus
  • Without Battling
    • In case you don’t have any of the above Pokemon or if they aren’t very high leveled, then you can also avoid battling it. Simply throw a Razz Berry to distract it. Then use the stealth spray and go behind it. Now back strike it with a poke ball of your choice. If you are lucky you will catch it, if not then it can attack you. So if you don’t have the Pokemon to defend yourself then run and try again later.

These are the recommended Poke balls to use while catching it. These are useful no matter if you plan on catching it with or without battling.

  • Great Ball
  • Ultra Ball
  • Heavy Ball
  • Leaden Ball
  • Gigaton Ball
