Overview

Terrakion is another raid boss that hits hard, but doesn't have a huge pool of defense to stay in the fight for a prolonged period. With the right team, a few of properly timed dodges, and preparedness for a relobby, this Duo should be a bit challenging, but nowhere near as bad as Cobalion.

Approach

Team Composition

  • Prioritize Psystrike Mewtwo, though Psychic is perfectly fine too

  • Meteor Mash Metagross is another top performer and can pull off a Duo comfortably

  • Many weather types bring other counters into Duo range

Battling strategy

  • Re-entering may be necessary; be prepared with a second team

  • Dodging can help substantially

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