Blaziken Raid Guide

Posted in

Blaziken FireFighting

Blaziken is a Fire and Fighting type Pokémon whose best counters consist of mostly Psychic and Flying type Pokémon.

Because Mega Blaziken has been released in Pokémon GO, it is possible to catch shiny Blaziken from a tier 3 raid. It has odds of roughly 1 in 125! You won’t get Mega Energy from a tier 3 Blaziken raid however.

Blaziken has a tier 3 raid boss CP of 19109, and can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 1550 – 1627 CP at Level 20 with no weather boost
  • 1938 – 2034 CP at Level 25 with Sunny or Cloudy weather boost

Prepared high level trainers should easily be able to defeat this raid boss solo, but lower level trainers, or those without ideal counters, may want to bring a friend.

Best Blaziken Counters in Pokémon GO

List of counters for the Blaziken Raid Boss in Pokémon GO, including best Pokémon to defeat it, highest DPS attackers, and moves to use. Learn which Pokémon are the best choice to beat this raid boss.

Since Shadow Pokémon are extremely expensive to power up and require specific events to remove Frustration with a Charge TM, they will NOT be listed as raid counters in this article. That said, if you have the shadow form of a listed raid counter Pokémon powered up and TMed, use it.
