Kyurem Raid Guide

Best Counters

You can find the best counters for the Kyurem Raid below.

Sourced from Pokebattler, a site that uses all Pokemon moves to figure out the top 10 counters.

Overall a steel type Pokemon will be your go-to.

  • Shadow Metagross (Bullet Punch, Meteor Mash)
  • Metagross (Bullet Punch, Meteor Mash)
  • Lucario (Counter, Aura Sphere)
  • Shadow Machamp (Counter, Dynamic Punch)
  • Conkeldurr (Counter, Dynamic Punch)
  • Shadow Tyranitar (Smack Down, Stone Edge)
  • Shadow Gardevoir (Charm, Dazzling Gleam)
  • Dialga (Dragon Breath, Draco Meteor)
  • Rhyperior (Smack Down, Rock Wrecker)
  • Machamp (Counter, Dynamic Punch)

How Many Trainers Are Needed?

It's possible to take down Kyurem with only two trainers but not recommended as it's a tough task.

Three trainers with some decent counters is a more viable option.

As always the more the better, if possible your best bet is a team or five or more.

Weather To Look Out For

Snow and Windy weather boost Kyurem's CP and attacks.

This is because the Pokemon is a Dragon and Ice type.

So be sure to have some Pokemon on you that can level the playing field if you run into a boosted Kyurem.
