Overview

Ferroseed could very well be the easiest Tier 3 that we have ever seen, and may be the easiest that we will ever see. Basically, run a few Fire Types and it will fall like a house of cards in a wind tunnel. Some Pokemon are even capable of taking it on 1v1 without dodging. Basic Fire Types actually resist all of Ferroseed's moves save Tackle, which is nothing special in-and-of itself. In short; don't sweat Ferroseed.

Approach

Team Composition

  • Fire types. All but the weakest can take this raid.

Battling Strategy

  • If you have even a few good Fire Type Pokemon, the only real way to lose this is to just not attack.

Note: "Good" movesets are not necessarily viable at the level indicated. Though in this case they are.

That's right; even a team of Charmander have the DPS and TDO needed to make this solo. Basically anything between the listed counters and this can be considered viable for this raid.

That said: Gamepress does not recommend raising a team of Lv.40 Charmander.
