      I play Insect Glaive, nothing in this game is difficult for me. Except Anjanath. He can knock me out of the air. He scares me.

        I came in unprepared, but still soloed her. She is very telegraphed in her attacks. Just take the tail and it's over.

          If you find this things damage op. Drink mega armorskin. It lasts till you faint. Meals also. Element resist up. Or defense up. Will stack w armorskin. A max potion/having 150 hp helps. Farm high rank odogaron or rath gear. Good fire and physical defense, if it's expedition, you have unlimited lives.

            when i was searching through the sos flares list all that came up on the assignments quests where the same one for the pink rathian. i dont know if they were having trouble fighting it or if that is where most people are in the game but when i battled it i won first try. It confused me so much.

              As someone else has said, Priority starts to become a thing with monsters now. You need to get rid of that tail asap. Focus everything on it, to do this, use flash pods and environmental aid to give yourself openings. Once the tails is out, focus the wings if you're using a ranged weapon, the head if you're melee. Be patient and wait for your openings, the fight will become fairly straight-forward.

                I went into this unprepared to just get a feel for what the fight would be like before I tried it for real. I used mostly low rank armor, a blast weapon, and rarely utilized the maps traps and still solo'd took 40 minutes though. I used one flash pod. If i'd have played with decent armor and a dragon weapon, I'd have beat him in 15 minutes by myself.

                  Pink Rathians even the tempered ones are very easy fights, maybe go upgrade your gear a little bit and then come back for it.

                    First, you need some decent defense stats. Enough so that his shuffle/charge only does 25% damage, at most. That way you can survive some of the bad luck combos.

                    He has a few simple attacks. A double right/left chomp (this attack leaves little opportunity to counter, and often chains to something else). A straight fireball that can hit extremely long distances. A 3 shot fireball (middle, right, left). A swinging tail (only when you're in melee and behind him). A flying tail swing that can poison you (sever the tail). A flying dash that will land behind you. The flying tail attack is followed either by landing, or by the flying dash. The dash always finishes on the ground.

                    There are 2 attack paths. First you want to sever the tail. This means waiting until all his attacks finish their animation, quickly striking and then leaving before he can swing his tail. His head is extremely vulnerable during the fireball attacks that are going to target your palico/teammates.

                    It's also a good idea to use the available resources on the terrain - sleeptoads and flashbugs are easy targets with a slinger and give awesome damage opportunities.

                      Worst monster yet. Dumb mechanics, huge aoe moves, ranged attacks, flames, and poison. And One hit will take 50% of your health with a health boost of +50. Yup dumb ****
