Overview

Cobalion can technically be beaten in a Duo Run, but a Trio is substantially more viable for most players. A large number of Pokemon can reach the numbers needed to pull it off regardless of level, giving players a fair amount of wiggle room to make it.

Approach

Team Composition 

  • Chandelure is the best overall counter
  • Front-load any Glass Counters for maximum effect
  • Many Pokemon are viable, with community day Fire Types such as Blaziken or Charizard standing out.
  • Use Fire Types in Clear weather, Fighting Types in Cloudy

Battling Strategy

  • If fainting out, dodge more. If running out of time, dodge less.
