Overview

Charizard is outright simple to solo given a few rock types. It will fold like a house of cards if you throw rocks at it, simply put.

Approach

  • Front-load Rampardos in order to make the most of its massive DPS.
  • Prioritize Rock Wrecker Rhyperior next for its huge TDO and high DPS
  • keep a focus on rock types. Even in the rain, no other type can keep pace.
  • Power-house pokes like Shadow Tyranitar or Rock Wrecker Rhyperior make this raid trivial
  • Mega Blastoise is the only viable Mega for this raid currently, though it still can't compare to Rock counters.
  •  

Battling Strategy

  • Don't bother.

Best Raid Boss Counters

Recommended Mega Evolutions

The viability of Mega Blastoise is contingent on the power of the Mega Boost and the teams used by fellow raiders. Regardless of this boost, Rock Type Mega Evolutions such as Mega Tyranitar will become the top choices for this raid when released.

Pros:

  • Mega Evolution, provides an important buff to all similarly typed Pokemon on the field
  • Good general accessibility. Species has been featured in multiple events, as a raid boss, in its own Community Day, and has been available since day 1
  • Resists Fire Type movesets
  • High overall bulk, great at keeping on the field for a good while

Cons:

  • Depending on the Mega Boost, may not be extremely viable, especially when compared to many Rock Type counters
  • Best moveset is Elite
Counters Viable at Lv.20
Rampardos Rampardos

Cons:

  • Fairly frail, benefits greatly from dodging
