The Elite Four, found at Indigo Plateau are what's known as the Pokémon League, and in your journey they follow on from Victory Road.

Below, we'll cover any and all of the obtainable Pokémon, item locations, trainers and their squads that you might encounter in the Indigo Plateau area, as well offerin some tips for beating each member of the Elite Four, and some heightened detail on the Pokémon they use.

Note that we've also opted to break out walkthrough pages down into sections, referring to each of your visits to a given location, seeing as you often backtrack or revisit various places in your quest to become Champion! Where applicable, we'll split our page into one section for each visit, and of course if there are any, clearly mark any spoilers, too!

Pokémon Let's Go: Elite Four Pokémon weaknesses and strategies

The Elite Four are four of the strongest trainers in all of Kanto. They cover four types - although often their teams will stray outside of their main typing - and there's one surprise at the end, too...

pokemon_lets_go_elite_four_1

Before you enter, note that you can't exit at any point to heal at a Pokémon Center or do anything else until you either defeat the entire Elite Four, or you're beaten by them. Make sure you heal up your sqaud then, do any last-minute levelling, stock up on Revives and Potions, and most of all save the game before you head inside! From then on, it's just down to you.

Here's a rundown of each member of the Elite Four's Pokémon team, including weaknesses so you know how to strategise your attacks against them. Note that where a weakness has an asterisk* next to it, that is a 4x weakness rather than the regular 2x!

Likewise, we go over how connect Pokémon Go to Let's Go on Nintendo Switch and transfer Pokémon, Catching, catch combos, and how to catch Pokémon explained , and finally give you a quick rundown of our selected Pokémon Let's Go tips and tricks to get you off to a great start, too.


Pokémon Let's Go: Indigo Plateau and Pokémon League - available Pokémon, items and trainers

As well as the Elite Four themselves, there are also a handful of other things worth taking notice of at Indigo Plateau.

First, there's a Super Nerd in the top left of the entrance area who'll offer you a trade: your regular Exeggutor for their Alolan Exeggutor.

After you beat the Elite Four, meanwhile, there's also a new merchant who appears here, just in front of the Pokémon Center counter. This person, dressed as a Poké Maniac, will sell you Mega Stones at a cost of $30,000 each. They sell every Mega Stone usable with Kanto Pokémon, excluding the four you got for the starters from Blue, and the two for Mewtwo.

Otherwise, again after you've beaten the Elite Four the first time, there's a rematch to be had with them. You can battle the entire elite Four again as many times as you like, but their Pokémon will be stronger than the first time around - all about 10 levels or so higher.

pokemon_lets_go_elite_four_7

There's also one other special battle to be had back here, after you've beaten six Master Trainers, but more on that another time!

And with that, you're all done - or are you?! You might have beaten the main story (contgratulations!) but there's still more to see and do in Kanto. After waking up back home, be sure to check out the optional Power Plant if you haven't already, or visit Cerulean Cave, for the most challenging hunt for Legendary Pokémon the game has.

All our other guides, meanwhile, can be found back on our main Pokémon Let's Go walkthrough and guide hub.
