Boldore Raid Counters Guide

Posted in

Boldore is a Tier-3 Raid Rock boss with a raid boss CP of 14254. Boldore can be soloed by the prepared trainer, but lower level trainers may need 2-4 players to ensure they can take it down. It has a raid boss CP of 14254.

Boldore can be caught in the following CP range:

  • 1095 CP to 1159 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 1369 CP to 1449 CP at Level 25, weather boosted

For Roggenrola Community Day Boldore becomes a special tier 4 raid. With this new higher level raid, it has a raid boss CP of 22537, and it will no longer be soloable. You will need at least one other high level trainer to help you defeat this spiky boss. We would recommend a minimum of 3 trainers to ensure a successful win, but lower level trainers may wish to bring together more trainers. Your counters remain the same, but you will need more trainers to be successful.

Boldore is boosted by Partly Cloudy weather. It is not available as a shiny from raids.

Boldore evolves into Gigalith, which is an incredibly cool looking Pokémon! It has some usage as a Rock type attacker, and a neat animation if you are into AR photography too.
