A trainer named DrAwesomeBlox posted a great video on Youtube, detailing how he managed to solo a Machamp by using only six Xatu. After an initially failed attempt, DrAwesome managed to down the Machamp after landing a number of successful dodges and charge attacks!
The successful battle is incredibly exciting up to the very end, as DrAwesome manages to land a perfectly timed (and risky!) charge at the 2 second timer. After defeating the boss, he can’t believe it actually happened:
Oh yes, yes! Woah! I soloed a Machamp with Xatus! Oh my gosh, I did not waste one million one hundred Stardust, oh my gosh. Soloed a Machamp with Xatus, got it on video, on Android. I feel like it would be a bit easier on an iPhone. Oh-my-gosh.
We’ve never thought that this is possible, but DrAwesome proved that Xatu is not to be trifled with. Curiously, this was not a one time attempt. Further investigation of DrAwesome’s Youtube channel shows that his first attempt was 6 days ago, but to no avail.
Practice makes perfect, especially in crazy scenarios like this one. We are quite curious to see what other bosses are soloable using unconventional lineups — if you come across an interesting raid lineup, let us know.
