Pokémon GO: These are the best counterattacks against Raikou in a raid

 Raikou is back in Pokémon GO. Here you will find the best counterattacks against the raid boss to catch Raikou.


That changes in the raids: On Sunday, January 31st at 10:00 am, the legendary Pokémon Raikou returned in raid battles of level 5.


Last Entei was there, now you meet the electric monster.


How long will Raikou stay? Raikou will remain in the raids until February 4th at 10:00 a.m. when Suicune will take over. You can find out what happens afterwards in the overview of the February events in Pokémon GO .


So you don't have too much time to secure Raikou. So that you can effectively defeat it when you are on a raid tour, you will find the best counterattacks here.


The strongest counterattacks against Raikou

Raikou is an Electro-type monster, so it has a weakness against Ground-type Pokémon. Accordingly, you should use monsters of this type that also attack with ground attacks if possible.


For Raikou you should start with at least three trainers, to be on the safe side with more. Here you can find the best counterattacks:


Rihornior

Rihornior

If you have secured a strong rihornior, you should bring it to use here. You don't even need the Rock Thrower event attack, you can use other moves.

  • Immediate attack: clay clamp
  • Charge attack: earthquake


Stalobor

Stalobor

Stalobor is a very good Ground-Type attacker because it has a Hammer drill attack. You should also use them against Raikou.

  • Immediate attack: clay clamp
  • Loading attack: hammer drill

Knakrack

Knakrack

Knakrack is not that easy to come by, as you rarely see lettuce in Pokémon GO . But if you have the dragon on the team, he will help you with ground attacks against Raikou.

  • Instant attack: clay shot
  • Charge attack: earthquake

Groudon

Groudon

From the line of legendary monsters, Groudon is best suited for a fight against Raikou. The right combination of attacks is also crucial here.

  • Instant attack: clay shot
  • Charge attack: earthquake

Demeteros

Demeteros

Demeteros is just as useful as Groudon, but it's been a while since it was in raids . But if you have a Demeteros available, use it with this combination:

  • Instant attack: clay shot
  • Charge attack: Earth forces

Crypto counterattack against Raikou

Also in the ranks of the crypto monsters there are some Pokémon that can help you very well against Raikou. It is important that you have taught them the right attacks.

Crypto counterattack against Raikou

  • Crypto Mamutel can advance you as a very strong counterattack against Raikou. If you have it on a high level and with the clay bell and steamroller attacks, it is even the strongest counterattack against Raikou.
  • Crypto Mewtwo is almost always a good choice because it just does a hell of a lot of damage. Use it with Psycho Blade and Psycho Strike.
  • Crypto Libelldra is also a great choice. It can harm Raikou with clay shot and earth forces.

More good counterattacks

You can use these monsters to replenish your team if you're missing some of the top counters. But keep in mind that you may need more players to defeat Raikou.

  • Rabigator with clay clamp and earthquake
  • Rizeros with clay clamp and earthquake
  • Mamutel with clay clamp and steamroller
  • Regigigas with power reserve and gigastock
  • Golgantes with clay bells and earth forces

How about the Shiny? You can also get Raikou in the shiny version from the raid. But you need a lot of luck for that, because dazzling variants are rare.

Do you already have a strong Raikou? Or do you have to grab another one?
