Suicune Raid Counters Explained

Suicune is a pure water Pokemon, however, his moves are quite varied and his typing makes him difficult to counter with the armies of Golems we powered up for the Legendary Birds.

We recommend using a small Zapdos battalion, bolstered with Alolan Exeggutor and Venusaur Frenzy Plant calvary. Dragonite is an option also, but keep in mind the following: if it’s Electric type or it has Solar Beam it’s good. Every other choice is more or less the same thing.

Suicune has access to following moves (best moves are marked bold):

  • Extrasensory psychic
  • Hidden Power
  • Hydro Pump water
  • Buble Beam water
  • Water Pulse water

Additional Suicune Counters

If you’ve been following along, and we know you did, you are aware that Suicune can only be effectively countered with Electric and Grass types. Bring your Roserade (Razor Leaf/Solar Beam), your Breloom (Bullet Seed/Grass Knot), Luxray (Spark/Wild Charge) and Shiftry (Razor Leaf/Leaf Blade) to this fight if you need a solid Team Two.

We always recommend Luxray as a Team Two member, especially as he has solid stamina and access to Electric type moves, so don’t forget that. Tyranitars and Golems are better left benched.
