merely hours after we’ve published our Ninetales raid boss guide: can it be solo raided? guide, one New Zealander managed to do it, beating the timer with less than a second left!
Erasold01, a Wellington based Instinct Trainer, has managed to solo a Feint Attack dark / Heat Wave fire Ninetales.
Erasold entered the fight with six Golems, powered up and with the correct movesets, but ended up using only the first three, due to timer limitations. Interestingly, Era decided to dodge only when a successful dodge could help him land another Stone Edge rock on Ninetales.
The whole fight lasts for little over than 3 minutes and it keeps getting more and more exciting as the timer inevitably approaches zero. After burning through two Golems, Erasold decides not to dodge a Heat Wave on his third Golem, giving it time and space to deal additional damage.
As time goes on, Ninetales and the last Golem are left in an epic struggle to knock each other out using only quick moves. You can almost imagine Erasold frantically tapping the screen in order to land that final blow.
Luckily, he does manage to land it! Just in the nick of time, as the timer changes from 1 to 0 remaining seconds, Ninetales stops moving and starts shrinking, with Era’s last Golem standing proud at probably less than 10 HP.
