Overview

Mega Gengar is one of the most important Mega Evolutions in Go due to its absolutely staggering attack stat and pervasive typing, meaning this raid will be very important for many players. Get ready, because Mega Gengar has the highest attack stat that we've had to fight thus far outside of Deoxys - Attack, greatly improved bulk, and a stronger moveset. A number of Pokemon have the DPS needed to be viable for a Duo, but TDO is a huge issue due to the fact that many viable counters are weak to Ghost. A good mix of counters is key to victory here, as is effective dodging.

Approach

Team composition

  • Shadow Mewtwo deals brutal amounts of damage, with normal Mewtwo not far behind. Just keep in mind that Mewtwo is weak to Ghost and is best used with effective dodging.

  • Mega Gengar is the fastest Mega Evolution counter available, while Mega Houndoom's resistances make it very viable against any variant not packing Focus Blast. The choice should be left up to what Pokemon your team mates are using and the moveset faced.

  • Weather and/or buddy boosts can make the duo viable, but TDO can be an issue

  • Use Ghost Types Vs. Focus Blast and Sludge Bomb, Dark Types Vs. Shadow Ball

  • Psychic Types not named Mewtwo are risky when not facing Focus Blast

  • Ground Types are viable in in the sun and Vs. Sludge Bomb

Battling strategy

  • Re-entering will be necessary for many teams.

  • Dodging is very recommended.

Note: "Good" movesets are not necessarily viable at the level indicated.
