The salt mushroom Pok√©mon is known as Nacli. ūü§ĒEvery time I come across a new Pok√©mon, I begin assessing whether it is worth catching.

The first time I stumbled upon Nacli, it reminded me of Minecraft due to its rock-like appearance in evolutions.

I took my time to learn everything about it before finally adding it to my team. I later created this post to share my knowledge on this salt mushroom Pokémon. Read on to find out what it is.

Nacli is a rock-type Pok√©mon that was first introduced in Generation IX. This Pok√©mon is composed of rock salt since it was born within the layers of salt. The top half of its body is made up of a white salt cube. While bits of salt fall off Nacli’s body as it moves, the Pok√©mon can replenish the salt from within.

The best teratype for Nacli is a power up type like Rock. This is because if the original type is not different from the Tera Type, it means that the power of moves will be doubled.

Additionally, a counter type is also a good teratype for Nacli. ūüĎÄ By tantalizing to a type you are weak against, it is easy to catch opponents off guard.

Some of the counter types include water, grass, bug, fire, flying, electric, normal, poison, ground, ghost, steel, dark, dragon, and Psychic.

What are Nacli’s abilities?

Nacli’s abilities include purifying salt and sturdy. The Pok√©mon’s pure salt halves the damage it takes from Ghost-type moves and protects it from status conditions.

On the other hand, Sturdy prevents one hit KO moves.

‚úäIt also enables it to survive with 1 HP even if it is fully attacked at full HP. Nacli’s hidden ability is clear body. This ensures that other Pok√©mon do not lower its stats.

This Pok√©mon can learn 26 ‚ĄĘ moves and 14 moves from leveling up. Nacli’s best moves to utilize when picking a moveset include leaving moves like Earthquake and TM moves such as Body Slam and Rock Slide.

It can learn Earthquake by reaching level 40 and Rock slide at level 30. By learning Body slam, it would get a 30% chance to paralyze a target.

On the other hand, by leaning Earthquake, the damage would double if the target uses Dig.

Being a Rock-type Pokémon, Nacli takes more damage from water, steel, grass, ground, and fighting-type moves.

Some of the Pokémon that Nacli is weak to include Quaxly, Cufant, Sprigatito, Phanpy and Pawmot.

Though such types can easily finish off Nacli, you should focus on Special attack moves since Nacli has a higher physical defense.

What are the counters for Nacli Pokemon?

Water, steel, ground, grass, and fighting-type moves are strong against Nacli. For you to defeat Nacli, you have to learn its weaknesses and use such stronger Pokémon since it takes more damage from them. It is resistant to fire, poison, and normal attacks.

Therefore, if you use such moves, you may not defeat it. Additionally, avoid bringing types like ice and bug into battle against this Pokémon since they have a weakness to its attacks.

Does Nacli evolve?

Yes. Nacli is one of the Pokémon that evolve. This Pokémon evolves into two forms.

It begins as a mushroom-shaped Pokémon but later transforms into a creature that resembles a Minecraft. Finally, when it is fully evolved, it turns into a massive golem of salt.

ūü§ēThough the fully evolved Pok√©mon looks quite intimidating, it cares for injured picket monsters by healing their wounds through salt.

Evolving it in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet can be a natural process of utilizing this Pokémon during your playthrough.

Naclasack finally evolves into Garganacl at level 38. Though Garganacl has a low-level requirement if you were to compare it to other third tier evolutions, it is considered among the best pocket monsters you can get in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
