Sure to be a legendary battle!
The legendary Kyogre is now officially appearing in Pokémon GO raids for the first time in a year, and you’ll be able to try your luck against it from now until June 8, 2022. If you’d like to get an edge on this water type from Hoenn, the Pokémon Company has you covered with a series of tips.
As a Water-type Pokémon, Kyogre is vulnerable to Grass- and Electric-type attacks. When selecting Pokémon for your Raid Battle lineup, it helps to choose Pokémon that have a Fast Attack and Charged Attack of one of these types if you want to deal as much damage as possible. It’s not necessary to choose only Grass- or Electric-type Pokémon, but a Pokémon that shares a type with these attacks will benefit from a same-type attack bonus, which will allow these attacks to deal an additional 20% damage.
If you have multiple Grass- or Electric-type Pokémon that have attacks of that type, choose the Pokémon with the highest CP and best overall stats. Remember that speed of victory affects how many Premier Balls you will receive at the conclusion of a successful Raid Battle, so bring your strongest Pokémon and defeat Kyogre as quickly as possible.
