Armarouge Weakness in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Released on the 18th of November, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is a hit, being available only on Nintendo Switch.

A fundamental part of the game is knowing the weaknesses of different Pokemon. They give you a stronghold over your opponents, a chance to help your team stay on the battleground for longer, and even defeat their enemy Pokemon faster.

One pokemon that we feel you should be considerably known to is Amarouge, but what you need to be aware of is its weaknesses, or otherwise, it can be a challenging opponent. 

Armarouge is a Fire/Psychic type Pokemon, and is probably one of the toughest Pokemon to defeat in the game. So you really should know what to do and what you shouldn’t do in a battle with it.

Therefore, the following guide helps you know Armarouge’s weakness and also its location so that you can get it for your Pokedex.

Evolving Charcadet into Armarouge in Scarlet

Armarouge Weakness in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

The main weakness of Armarouge in Pokemon scarlet and violet is water. However, there are other additional weaknesses too that you can make use of in a battle other than water type. They are:

  • Ground
  • Rock 
  • Dark
  • Ghost

Any of these types will give you the upper hand that you need. A Pokemon that can greatly counter Armarouge is Tyranitar. It is immune to Armarouge’s Psychic type moves and also can significantly defend its fire-type moves. To get Tyranitar, you will have to evolve Larvitar. 

Another Pokemon that can go against Armarouge easily is Houndoom. This is due to it being immune to the STAB attacks by Armarouge with the use of Flash Fire ability. 

Resists and Immunities of Armarouge

Armarouge is not immune to any attacks at all. However, there are a few attacks that we recommend that you avoid in a battle with Armarouge, because it will simply absorb them. They are:

  • Grass
  • Ice
  • Fire
  • Psychic
  • Fighting
  • Fairy
  • Steel

Location of Armarouge

Sadly, the only way that you can get Armarouge is through evolving Charcadet. This means that you won’t just happen to come across it in the Paldea region. You will need to find a Charcadet instead that will evolve into Armarouge eventually when you use the Auspicious Armor. Here is a complete guide to that.

An important thing to note is that Armarouge is Scarlet exclusive, and the Violet players can get it via trading. So, find someone who has evolved a Charcadet and connect with them.

That is all there is to know about Armarouge Weakness in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
