Behold! The Whitney of all Totem Pokémon 

Totem Lurantis is Totem Pokémon and boss in Pokémon Sun/Moon and Pokémon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon. In both games, Totem Lurantis the final trial to be given to the player by Mallow, she is the forth Totem Pokemon boss and is overall the fifth boss of the game.

Altho not as bad as two other entry in this game, Totem Lurantis is often considered the most infamous and frustrating boss in the game. It can be as frustrating at Whitney.

Why It Sucks

  1. Just like every other Totem Pokémon, Totom Lurantis gets a state rises, that of course being her Speed raises by two stages once her aura flares to life.
  2. Don't let her Grass typing fool you. She's a massive pain for almost every player in the game.
  3. Totem Lurantis' ability Leaf Guard protects her from status problems in harsh sunlight.
  4. Depend on which game your playing, Totem Lurantis has differint moves, but even then, she has three physic moves and one status move that are a pain, her moveset consists of:
    • Solar Blade: A powerful Grass-type move which is basically a physical Solar Beam. The user charges in the first turn then does massive damage at the next turn. To make matters worse, Lurantis has a Power Herb which skips allows her instantly use the move and during harsh sunlight, it ignores recharging. God forbid if you have a Primarina (or any other Water-type), or Rock and or Ground-type.
    • X-Scissor: A powerful Bug-type move which is a threat to Dark, Grass and Physic users.
    • Razor Leaf(in Sun and Moon): A Grass move which has a high critical hit ratio, and is a counter for Water, Rock and Ground-types.
    • Low Sweep (in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon): A Fighting-move which lowers the speed of the foe once hit. It is a massive threat to Incineroar users (or any other Dark-type Pokemon) and Rock, Normal, Ice and Steel-Type Pokemon.
    • Synthesis: It is perhaps the biggest pain because it heals her.
  5. Totem Luramtis' ally Pokémon in both versions can be super annoying. In Sun and Moon:
    1. Totem Lurantis' first ally is Trumbeak which has the ability Keen Eye which prevents accuracy loss. It's moveset consists of two physic moves and two status move:
      1. Rock Blast: A Rock type move that hits the foe 2-5 times. It is a threat to Incineroar users (or any other Fire-Type Pokemon) or Flying, Ice and Bug-type Pokemon. Players are lucky that Trumbeak doesn't have the Skill Link ability which is literally a death sentence.
      2. Screech: A Normal-type status move which sharply lowers the foe's defense.
      3. Pluck: A Flying-type move that does damage and steals berries from the foes, as well as being a threat for Fighting, Grass and Bug-type Pokemon.
      4. Supersonic: A Normal-type status move that confuses the foe.
    2. Her next ally Pokémon is Castform. It's much more annoying because it's ability Forecast changes it's form with the weather. It's moveset consists of:
      • Sunny Day: A move that sets up harsh sunlight for 5 turns. It is an advantage for Fire type users as it raises their power however on the downside, Totem Lurantis has Solar Blade and can do instant damage without recharging.
      • Water Gun: An early Water-type move that is very weak but is steal a threat to Fire, Rock and Ground-type users.
      • Headbutt: A Normal-type move that also causes flinching.
      • Weatherball: A move that changes the type depending on the weather. It does Fire type damage when Sunny Day is activated and as such, is a huge threat for Grass, Bug, Ice and Steel-type Pokemon.
  6. Her ally Pokémon in Ultra Sun and Moon is much more annoying. Her allies are:
    1. Her first ally is Keckleon. It's Colour Change ability changes it's type same as the move it is hit by. It's moveset consists of:
      • Dizzy Punch: A Normal move that may confuse the foe.
      • Sunny Day: Same as Castform.
      • Ancient Power: A Rock type move that is a threat to Incineroar (or any other Fire-Type Pokemon) users, as well as Flying, Bug and Ice-type Pokemon and raises all Keckleon's stats.
    • Her next Pokémon is the infamous Comfey. However it's not a good attacker however it is still a huge pain for a lot of players due to it's OP Fairy typing and annoying moves that makes it easier for Lurantis to become a pain. It's moveset consists of healing, defense raising moves and Sunny Day.
  7. If the player has chosen Popplio, they are in worse condition as Water is weak to Grass. Other starters also face troubles with the movesets of their allies.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Totem Lurantis has a great design.
  2. The theme that plays is also really good.
  3. Also defeating her, Mallow, the trial Captain rewards a Grassnium Z.

Tips for winning

  1. Find a female Salandit and make sure it knows the move Toxic since most Totem Pokémon are unable to heal their status conditions and the Toxic inflicted poison does more damage after every turn. It has the typing Poison/Fire, both types that resist Grass types.
  2. Evolve your Fletchling and teach it Fire and Flying moves. However you need to watch out for Rockblast because of it's 4x weakness to Rock.
