veteran hugo ace trainer tom ace trainer dara veteran kim
druddigon lvl 42 (drg) deino lvl 39 (drg) deino lvl 40 (drg) Fraxure lvl 41 (drg)

Fight with veteran hugo and follow the path until you press another switch. Head to its head and follow the path until you fight ace trainer Tom.

Follow the path until you fight with Veteran Kim. Go north then west to press the switch. Head north and fight


Fraxure lvl 41 (dragon)
Druddigon lvl 41 (dragon)
Haxorus lvl 43 (dragon)

Fraxure and druddigon is not a problem at all (okay, druddigon may become a problem because of his rough skin ability). Haxorus is a real pain the ass if you don’t have any powerful ice pokemon (luckily I have cryogonal). Once Haxorus use dragon dance and  it can attack you on the first turn, the battle will become very hard because it has ridiculously high amount of attack status (can kill your pokemon in one hit).

If you see the video, it seems pretty easy for me to beat him. it’s because I have Cryogonal with nevermelt ice equipped, so it can annihilate any dragon type Pokemon with one hit :D.

After the battle you will get the legend badge and TM 82 dragon tail.
