Mawile Raid Guide

Pokemon GO Mawile Raid Shiny

Mawile is a Tier 2 Raid Boss in Pokemon GO, with Boss CP of 9403 and Max Capture CP of 848 (Level 20, perfect IV score) or 1060 if boosted by weather. Best Mawile Raid counters include almost every fire you can get your hands on. A Raid Mawile can be Shiny and the chance to get a shiny Mawile from a raid seems fairly high.

Mawile is easily soloable and it is only required to have one or two strong attackers in order to take it down. Mawile is a steel and fairy type, with ony two weakness: fire and ground.

If you’ve read the table above, we guess you already got a fairly solid understanding how to counter a Mawile. Fire, fire and more fire. The curious thing about Mawile is that it’s so easily countered that you can use your worst fire types and still come out on top with minimal loses.

However, we suggest to rather stick to one solid Attacker and burn through Mawile’s health pool in a breeze. Remember that a Raid Mawile can be shiny, so you potentially don’t want to skip these raids, although they are a waste of Raid Passes if you want a usable Pokemon out of a raid.

Mawile has access to the following moves:

  • Bite dark
  • Astonish ghost
  • Play Rough fairy
  • Iron Head steel
  • Vice Grip normal

Additional Mawile Counters

As we already explained above, any Pokemon that has access to fire type attacks is a good Mawile counter. With that in mind, any Fire type will be a good option, provided it is not super low level or doesn’t have fire type moves.

Our suggestions include the following moves and Pokemon with access to those moves:

  • Anything with Overheat, Flamethrower or Fire Blast
    • Typhlosion
    • Magmar
    • Rapidash
    • Ninetales
    • Houndoom
  • Anything with Earthquake
    • Rhydon
    • Golem
    • Swampert
