Pokemon X Y - Eighth Gym Leader Wulfric Guide

If you're stressing about this gym, chill out! Professor Neckbeard is here.

This is it, trainer! You have reached the last gym leader in Pokemon X Y and the last badge you need before going down Victory Road. Wulfric is the leader of Snowbelle City.

If you cannot get to the gym in Snowbelle City yet, it's because Wulfric is over in Pokemon village. Check your map and start heading over there. After running into him eventually, he will return to the gym and you will be able to challenge him.

Know Your Enemy

Ice types are super effective against four types, ineffective against four types, resistant to one, and weak to four. This gives you plenty of options offensively and a decent amount of options defensively.

  • Ice types are weak to fire, fighting, rock, and steel. You should have either Talonflame or Lucario on your team; they will be able to tear through this gym if they are the correct level.
  • Ice types are strong against grass, ground, flying, and dragon. You do not want to use Chesnaught or Venusaur. Talonflame, while part flying, is also part fire which will cancel out the super effectiveness of ice moves.
  • Ice types are resistant to only ice types. You do not want to have an ice on ice battle as it will probably go nowhere at all.
  • Ice types deal half damage to fire, water, ice, and steel. Mono steel or mono fire will rock their worlds.

Ice to Beat You

 The puzzle in this gym is pretty straightforward. You will need to beat every trainer in the gym before reaching Wulfric. Just experiment with the puzzle and eventually you will make your way over.
