The first-ever purely Ghost Pokemon was Misdreavus, who was introduced in the second generation of the long-running powerhouse franchise. This Pokemon can evolve into Mismagius, who has some players looking to add the evolution of the original spectral Pokémon to their team as they make their returns to the Sinnoh region with Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. For players who decide to add Mismagius’ to their party, it is important to know his weaknesses to build a good team to take into battle. This guide will break down all of Mismagius’ weaknesses in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Mismagius’ Weaknesses in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Mismagius is a Ghost-type Pokémon, which means it is weak to two different attack types. These attack types are its own type of Ghost as well as Dark. These weaknesses come out to do two times the regular damage against Mismagius. Luckily, no weakness does four times the damage to Mismagius.
While it is good to know Mismagius’ weaknesses to ensure they avoid those situations, it is just as important to also find Mismagius’ strengths so that you can use the spectre to their full potential. Mismagius is immune to two types of attacks, being Fighting and Normal types. In addition to these immunities, Mismagius is also resistant to two types of attacks. The Pokémon is strong against Bug attacks as well as Poison-types attacks. These two attack types will do half the damage of what a move would usually do. This makes it very important that you know to use it against these types of Pokémon so that you know how to use Mismagius’ strengths and avoid his weaknesses.
Both Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl are available now on the Nintendo Switch.
