Best Pokemon Team to Defeat Flint in Pokemon BDSP

Here are a few Pokemon we suggest for this battle:

  • Gyarados
  • Staraptor
  • Luxray


Flint’s two most dangerous Pokemon are Rapidash and Infernape so, if you deal with them then the remaining team should not be difficult to beat.

As long as your Gyarados is somewhere close to level 55 it should be able to pretty much singlehandedly defeat both Rapidash and Infernape.

His Infernape will punish you if you take too long to go on the offensive so make sure you don’t give him the opportunity. Some of the most useful moves of this Pokemon will be Waterfall, Crunch, and Dragon Dance


The second ideal Pokemon for you to have is Staraptor. You can use this Pokemon to defeat Lopunny. Lopunny is weak against the fighting-type moves.

You can use the move Close Combat to immediately take Lopunny out. You can use Aerial Ace move to counter the move minimized from Lopunny.

Other than Aerial Ace and Close Combat you can use the Brave Bird move to dish out a good amount of damage to Flint’s Pokemon.


To defeat Drifblim, you can use Luxray with the dark type bite move. It’s electric-type moves will knock out the Drifblim quickly. You can use the Shockwave move to counter Minimize.

This Pokemon is also easy to train from the start of the game, so it is very useful for you. You can also use its moves like Spark and Crunch other than Shock wave to take out Drifblim.

The Steelix and Lopunny are easy to deal with if you have Pokemon that can do high damage dealing moves. Once you beat Flint, you will be ready for your next fight against Elite Four Lucian.
