Elite Four

High atop the Indigo Plateau, the Elite Four of Kanto await the challenge of any trainer bold enough to collect all eight badges. This league boasts a knockout style where you battle the trainers back to back, with only a break in between to walk to the next room - so while you can use healing items in between battles, you cannot go back to the Pokemon Center. Proceed with caution.

Elite Four Lorelei

Member: Lorelei
Specialty: Ice-type

Method:
Lorelei uses a mixture of Ice-type and Water-type Pokemon. Her strategy uses a mixture of powerful attacks and applying residual damage in the form of Hail and Spikes. Hail lasts five turns and will hit all non-Ice-types. Rock-type moves are ideal here since the obvious choice of Fire will only hurt Jynx for super-effective damage.

Elite Four Bruno

Member: Bruno
Specialty: Fighting-type

Method:
The master of Fighting-type Pokemon, Bruno, also employs the power of the Rock-type Onix. His team launches a strong offensive using three attack types with great coverage - Rock, Fighting, and Ground. Pokemon like Gengar or Weezing thrive in this match since Fighting-type attacks are ineffective and Ground-type attacks miss due to Levitate.

Elite Four Agatha

Member: Agatha
Specialty: Ghost-type

Method:
Though thematically Agatha is a Ghost-type master, in this match it is more apt to say her speciality lies with Poison-types, since its the only type her entire team shares. Like Koga, she uses a combination of the sleep, poison, and confusion techniques to wittle your monsters down. Best to keep a few Full Heals in your arsenal to muck up this very annoying tactic. A tip: you can use the Poke Flute in battle to awaken sleeping Pokemon.

Elite Four Lance

Member: Lance
Specialty: Dragon-type

Method:
Lance is the Dragon-type master of the Elite Four, and not a foe to be trifled with. All of his Pokemon use the very powerful move Hyper Beam, which can easily wipe out a Pokemon not resistant to it. However, there is a silver lining - Hyper Beam forces the user to miss its following turn so it can recharge. Another favourite move of his is Outrage, which is resisted by only the Steel-type. Ice-type moves are very effective in this battle, hitting everything on his team for a good amount of damage.

Champion Green

Member: Green
Specialty: None

Method:
Staying one step ahead the whole game, it seems your rival has gone and beaten the Elite Four before you could. He uses a very balanced team, incorporating many different elemental types as well as some strong moves. The best strategy is to repay him in kind with a balanced team of your own.

Rematches

After you finish your affairs in the Sevii Islands, you can return to the Indigo Plateau for a second round at the Elite Four. While you've been away these trainers have sharpened their skills, levelling up their teams and throwing in some Johto Pokemon to patch up holes they may have had the first time.

Elite Four Lorelei

Member: Lorelei
Specialty: Ice-type

Method:
This time around Lorelei has shifted focus and built her team solely around Ice-types, trading the Slowbro for a Piloswine who uses very strong physical moves like Earthquake. Her Cloyster supports the team with Rain Dance, making the Water-type attacks used even stronger and turning Lapras' Thunder into a no-miss move.

Elite Four Bruno

Member: Bruno
Specialty: Fighting-type

Method:
Bruno has gone and evolved his twin Onix into Steelix, giving the team an enormous defense boost by adding a Psychic resistance in the process. However, the same tricks that worked the first time still apply.

Elite Four Agatha

Member: Agatha
Specialty: Ghost-type

Method:
Agatha's team now features the Ghost-type Misdreavus, and evolves the Golbat into a Crobat. Interestingly it seems all her Pokemon are now male-gendered, which is useful to know if you use a strategy involving Attract.

Elite Four Lance

Member: Lance
Specialty: Dragon-type

Method:
The Dragon-type Master's formidable team is back with a vengeance, packing some incredibly powerful Special Attack moves and an improved roster. Kingdra's only weakness this generation is, ironically enough, the Dragon-type. If you have a Kingdra or Dragonite of your own (or any of the Hoenn dragons) you should be in good standing.

Champion Green

Member: Green
Specialty: None

Method:
While travelling the Sevii Islands it seems that your rival has also spent time improving his team. His coverage is better than ever, adding two very strong Pokemon found in the islands to an already well-rounded group. This team is the highest-leveled in the game too, mind. Defeat him once more and you will have completed the postgame storyline for FireRed and LeafGreen.
