There's a few strong Fire-type creatures you can find in Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee, but perhaps none stronger than Moltres. This legendary Pokemon is hard to track down though, and you're going to have to journey a bit off the beaten path to find it. In our Pokemon Let's Go Moltres guide, we'll be walking you through how to find Moltres in Pokemon Let's Go as easily as possible.
How to Get Moltres in Pokemon Let’s Go
To find Moltres, you’ll firstly need to make it to the cave on Victory Road. However to even think about making it to Victory Road in the first place, you’ll need to defeat all eight Gym Leaders in the game, including the likes of Brock, Misty, Sabrina, Blaine, and more.
Once at Victory Road, you’ll eventually find yourself in the cave. You’ll eventually come to Officer Jenny, who you can see below, that’ll heal your Pokemon up instantly.
You need to use the Strong Push technique on the stone pillar to the left of Officer Jenny. Doing this will let you access the ladder just above you that leads down to the next level of the caverns.
Simply head to the right once you’ve taken this ladder leading downwards, and you’ll be able to find Moltres. As usual with all legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, you’ll have 5 minutes maximum to take down Moltres in combat. We’d recommend using Electric, or Water-type Pokemon for taking down Moltres as quickly as possible.
Once Moltres has been defeated in combat, you’ve got all the time in the world to capture it using a Poke Ball. Note that legendary Pokemon are always the most difficult to contain, so you’ll want to use the highest level ball possible, like a Great, Ultra, or Premier Ball (we just used our only Master Ball).
And this is how you can find and capture Moltres in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. Now that we’re all done here, you can check out our Pokemon Let’s Go Articuno guide, or our Pokemon Let’s Go Zapdos guide, for info on how to catch the two additional legendary Pokemon in the game.
