Entei Raid Counters Explained

Entei is a pure fire Pokemon, which results in a very easy list of counters. Use Kyogre, Rampardos, Palkia, legacy Feraligatr (if you are lucky enough to have one), Tyranitar, and Gyarados. In case of need, substitute with any other Pokemon that has resistance to fire and access to either Stone Edge or Hydro Pump. Just add water 😉

As always, we suggest using the proper moves with a properly sized team. Entei is effectively a better Flareon, has access to a multitude of strong moves and shouldn’t be avoided. There’s a plethora of Pokemon in future generations that can be countered by strong Fire types.

Entei has access to mainly fire type moves (best moves marked bold) and one steel type move:

  • Fire Fang fire
  • Fire Spin fire
  • Overheat fire
  • Flamethrower fire
  • Fire Blast fire
  • Iron Head steel

Additional Entei Counters

As we already explained above, Entei is weak to three common elements: Water, Rock and Ground, which results in a long list of potential counters.

We can recommend a few additional attackers:

The list doesn’t stop there, you can mix and match anything with SE moves in accordance to your group size. Sometimes, a handful of Hydro Pump Golducks will do the job also.
