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 with is Raikou with Thunder Shock / Wild Charge and Magnezone with the appropriate move set. Zapdos, Electivire, Luxray, Mewtwo, and Roserade are also all excellent choices. Both Electric and Grass Pokemon take reduced damage from Water-type moves so are even more-so, the best option to bring along to a Blastoise Raid.
Blastoise has access to the following moves:
The only reasonably dangerous move set is Ice Beam, as it deals super effective damage against Grass type counters and because Ice Beam has two bars, which results in frequent move activations. Ice Beam can be dodged, but it takes some practice to do so.
