Blastoise Raid Boss

How to find nests and Spawns

Blastoise is one of the easier rank 4 Raid Bosses, but it does require some attention. It is not soloable and it will take at least 3-4 Trainers with high CP and high HP Pokemon that benefit from SE moves against Blastoise. Do note that most good Blastoise counters have low HP and required dodging specials at least.

Blastoise Boss CP is 24162 and it can have Max Capture CP of 1309 (perfect IV).

Blastoise Raid Counters Explained

Before we go into deeper analysis, remember that Blastoise can’t be soloed. Before joining raid make sure you are using Pokémon with proper movesets. Blastoise takes Super Effective damage from electric and grass type Movesets, due to its water type.

The best Pokemon to fight Blastoise is Jolteon with Thunder Shock / Thunderbolt Moveset. Even though Jolteon is a glass cannon (low HP, high DPS), a few good dodges will help it deal significant damage with Thunderbolt. In general, we prefer both Thunderbolt and Discharge over Thunder (Jolteon’s third charge move), as it’s only 1 bar and thus very risky to use in Raids.

Both Electric and Grass Pokemon take reduced damage from Water type moves so they are best option to bring along in Blastoise Raid.
