Fantina is only accessible by correctly answering a series of simple math questions and entering the correct door. You’ll have to face a trainer if you choose the wrong door. However, if you’re looking for a way to get more practise in, deliberately answering incorrectly may be a useful strategy.
Confuse Ray is a favourite of Fantina’s ghost-type Pokémon. The following is what she has:
Drifblim, level 32, ghost/flying
Gengar, level 34, ghost/poison
