One of my most frustrating steps in Pokémon was training Rock Climb⛰ because I did not know that some Pokémon were better rock climbers than others.
Such characterizes the experience of many players and explains why I get endless calls from frustrated players who are yet to discover the Pokémon that can learn Rock Climb.
The elusive Rock Climb move can easily be conquered by discovering the best rock climbers and providing the right training.
So, ditch the climbing frustrations, and let’s conquer those peaks like legendary trainers with the best climbers.
Is Rock Climb a good move for Pokémon?
Rock climb is a good move in some situations but not in all. Most experienced players use it in what I like to call a situational niche.
This is when the players use it more as a confusing 😵 strategy to either disrupt the opponent’s strategy or buy time for set-up.
Additionally, most players use it when not engaging in competitive battling. Due to its high power, it can easily clear weaker enemies.
It is also fun to confuse the enemy before dealing them a powerful blow. Since Pokémon is about having fun, rock climb is a good move.
How to get rock climb in Pokémon Go
Sadly😢, Rock Climb is currently not available in Pokémon Go. I believe this is so because Pokémon Go does not utilize Hidden Machines, and hence, scaling cliffs to access hidden areas is not feasible.
However, you can still access hidden areas in Pokémon Go by moves such as Rock Smash, Water Fall, and Rock Tunnel.
