Breloom, a raid boss in Pokemon Go, has been in both tier 2 and tier 3 raids. As a Tier 2 it has a boss CP of 13695 and as a Tier 3 it has a boss CP of 19368. The Pokémon best suited to beat Breloom are of the Flying (double weakness!), Fire, Psychic, Fairy, Poison, and Ice types.

Breloom can be caught at the following CP’s through raids:

  • 1502 Perfect IV, Non-weather boosted
  • 1877 Perfect IV, Sunny & Cloudy weather

With the correct counters, Breloom can be soloed by an intermediately high-level player as a Tier 3 boss. Two trainers should have no problem taking this walking ‘shroom out.

Breloom should not pose a threat to anyone that uses the above Pokémon. Shout-out to Honchkrow for his high spot on the list, making Murkrow an attention-worthy Pokémon.

Breloom has access to the following moves:

  • Counter Fighting (fast)
  • Bullet Seed Grass (fast)
  • Dynamic Punch Fighting (Two bar; charge)
  • Seed Bomb Grass (Three bar; charge)
  • Sludge Bomb Poison (Two bar; charge)

Rayquaza is the best Pokémon to have when tackling a Breloom solo. While Flying type is not useful in the current meta, it is the best option when solo-ing a Breloom, especially in Windy weather. Moltres (with legacy Charge move) joins Rayquaza as the absolute best Breloom counters. Honchkrow, Yanmega, and Togekiss (recently introduced in the game by evolving with the Sinnoh Stone follow the lead with a very high (and close) DPS.

Staraptor, Charizard, and Dragonite are also very good and easy to afford since they don’t require any special item and/or aren’t that hard to get.

Additional Notes:

Breloom is best taken on in Windy weather, boosting any Flying and Psychic type movesets while not boosting any of Breloom’s moves. Sunny and Cloudy weather does just that, but allows Breloom to be caught at a much higher CP.
