How can you get the Focus Sash, Specs, Scarf, and other rewards from quests in Minimal Grinding Mode?

Instead, show a Pokemon with 125+ base stats in the relevant stat (Chuck wants a pokemon with a powerful attack, thus showing terrakion).

Some Boss Pokemon have illegal moves, but they aren’t particularly egregious (some examples include Grassy Glide Tapu Bulu, High Horsepower Gliscor).
