Fantina is the fifth Gym Leader in shiny diamond Pokémon Y shiny pearl, and she’s a ghost specialist in Hearthome City. Our Hearthome Gym Leader Guide will help you by listing your group and recommending counters that you can find nearby.
Hearthome City Gym Challenge
To get to Fantina, you need to correctly answer a few simple math questions by going through the door with the appropriate answer. If you choose the wrong gate, you will have to fight against a trainer. However, if you have more work to do, it might be a good idea to answer on purpose.
Fantina uses Ghost-type Pokemon, and they love using Confuse Ray. Use the following items:
- drift blimLevel 32, Ghost/Flying
- GengarLevel 34, spirit/poison
- mismagiusGhost level 36
Note that his Gengar’s ability is Hover, meaning no ground movements will hit him.
Fantine’s special type is annoying as Ghost-types are only weak against Ghost and Dark-type attacks. In general, you shouldn’t use any other Ghost-type against them as it will also deal super effective damage to your Pokemon, but you can if your Ghost-type Pokemon is faster than theirs.
Dark-type Pokémon can be difficult to find, but many Pokémon learn the Dark-type attack Bite as they level up. You can also take advantage of Drifblim’s dual flight type to use Electric-type attacks against it.
You can find counters in the following locations:
- hospitable spirit
- Pikachu, electric
Although you can find these Pokemon along these routes, they need to evolve and level up.
