Tyranitar is Tier 3 raid boss in Pokémon GO with 23779 Boss CP and boosted by Partly Cloudy and Fog weather. Best Tyranitar counters are strong Fighting type Pokemon like Conkeldurr, Machamp, Hariyama, Breloom, Lucario and Blaziken.

Tyranitar can be caught in following raid CP ranges:

  • 2103 – 2191 CP (Level 20, no weather boost)
  • 2629 – 2739 CP (Level 25, weather boost)

Tyranitar can be soloed with the changes to Super Effective damage with the PVP update, provided you have luck, a strong Fighting team, and Cloudy weather, failing that we  would recommend you make attempts with 2 or more trainers.

Tyranitar takes double Super Effective damage from Fighting moves, which results in a fairly simple choice of counters for your team. We strongly recommend sticking with Fighting types as they simply outperform every other type against Tyranitar.


Here’s a few tips for Tyranitar solo raiders:

  • Use an army of solid fighting types
  • Don’t worry about time, you have enough time
  • Make sure you have double Fighting moves on all of your team
  • Be on the lookout for weather boosted raids
