Groudon Raid Guide

Best Counters

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

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

Grass, ice and water type Pokemon will be your strength.

  • Mega Venusaur (Vine Whip, Frenzy Plant)
  • Shadow Gyarados (Waterfall, Hydro Pump)
  • Mega Blastoise (Water Gun, Hydro Cannon)*
  • Shadow Swampert (Water Gun, Hydro Cannon)
  • Shadow Mewtwo (Confusion, Ice Beam)
  • Shadow Venusaur (Vine Whip, Frenzy Plant)
  • Kyogre (Waterfall, Surf)
  • Mega Abomasnow (Razor Leaf, Weather Ball)*
  • Shadow Salamence (Dragon Tail, Hydro Pump)
  • Tangrowth (Vine Whip, Power Whip)

How Many Trainers Are Needed?

Groudon can be a challenge to beat.

If three trainers are completely powered up and have good counters it's possible.

You may want to take the less risky option and go in with four to six trainers.

Weather To Look Out For

Watch out for sunny/clear weather conditions.

These conditions will boost Groudon's ground type attacks.

Although if you're bringing grass type Pokemon it won't matter too much as these weather conditions boost grass types too.
