These Easy-to-Obtain Pokémon Make the Best Fighters for Your Pokémon Quest Team

When you're first starting out in Pokémon Quest, it can be tough to determine which Pokémon are the best fit for your team.

First, there are just so many Pokémon to choose from. Second, you're never sure which recipes will give you which Pokémon, and which ones will be toughest to recruit.

Not only does this list take all of the guess work out of the process, but it only includes Pokémon that are super easy to obtain with the right recipes.


Alakazam has a massive attack stat, and with the right moves, it can mow down even the most powerful enemies in a snap. To get an Alakazam, you'll want to attract Abra to your Base Camp, and use additional Abras to train up its level and teach it new moves. Abra will evolve into Kadabra at level 16, and then into Alakazam at level 36.

Use this Brain Food à la Cube recipe to attract Abras every time.

If you want to make it far in Pokémon Quest, you're going to want a Pokémon that can absorb hits and survive while your downed Pokémon recuperate. Golem's high HP allows it to take quite a beating, and its long-range attacks can be pretty powerful too.

Make sure to teach it Dig for the biggest impact. You'll see a number of dual rock and ground-type Pokémon on this list, not only because they're survivors, but because two later areas of the game give advantages to those types. Geodude evolves into evolves into Graveler at level 25 and Golem at level 36.

  • 1 Apricorn
  • 2 Fossils

  • 1 Apricorn or Fossil

Best Moves: Dig, Earthquake

Rhydon is one of the more balanced Pokémon in Pokémon Quest with good HP stats and even better attack stats. It attacks up-close, and its Crunch attack is great for getting your team out of a pinch when things get tough. Rhyhorn evolves into Rhydon at level 42, so it'll take a bit of training to get there—but it's totally worth it.

Cook the following Mud Pie à la Cube recipe to get Rhyhorn about 50% of the time. The rest of the time, you'll get Geodude—which is great if you're composing a super-tough rock and ground team:
