Trevenant (オーロット) is the 62nd Pokémon in the Kalos Mountain Pokédex. It is a Ghost/Grass-Type, and is known as the Elder Tree Pokémon.

Trevenant can use one of two Abilities: Natural Cure, which allows it to recover from the five major Status Conditions once switched out of battle; or Frisk, which reveals the opponent's Hold Item if the opponent has one. Trevenant's Hidden Ability is Harvest, which has a 50% chance of restoring a berry that has been consumed; in periods of strong sunlight this chance doubles to 100%.

Phantump evolves into Trevenant by trading it to another game.

Trevenant is in the Egg Groups Grass and Amorphous. It takes Trevenant One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.




Trevenant takes on the appearance of a decaying tree that has been possessed by a spirit. It has a lone, red eye towards its head (or crown, as is the case). Its two arms have green bushes growing around each wrist; a third bush grows atop the crown. Trevenant's six roots are its legs and feet.

Gender Differences

Trevenant doesn't have any visible differences to differentiate between male and female.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Trevenant is in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With a high Attack stat and decent STAB options to work with, it can hit a number of slower Pokémon in the tier for solid damage. It has solid coverage options in Earthquake and Rock Slide, which when complemented by STAB Wood Hammer and Shadow Claw makes for good neutral coverage against the majority of the tier. Natural Cure makes Trevenant a passable status absorber, being able to switch into Scald and not have to be completely crippled by burns. Trevenant's best set is a Choice Band set that gives it maximum power to work with and acts as a strong attacking threat. However, Trevenant has numerous weaknesses to common attacking types like Dark, Ghost, Fire, Ice, and Flying, which makes it relatively easy to revenge kill. It is not a good answer to Normal and Fighting-types like Tauros, Hariyama, and Hitmonchan, as it is hit hard by their super effective coverage. Trevenant is completely outclassed in defensive roles by Gourgeist-XL, which boasts higher Defense and reliable recovery in Synthesis. It competes with Torterra as well as a Grass-type wallbreaker due to the latter's better bulk, resistances, and stronger STAB attacks, although Trevenant's Ghost typing allows for it to spinblock and gives it a different STAB attack to work with.
