Bronzor is a Tier 1 raid boss in Pokémon Go and is a part of Part 1 – Pokémon Brilliant Diamond event, running from Tuesday, November 16, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Thursday, November 18, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Bronzor evolves into giant bell, Bronzong is usable in both great and ultra leagues, but there are better Pokémon that fill its roles. It has good defense stats, but its lackluster HP makes it less than ideal in PvP. It is usable in PvE, but there are other stronger Psychic and Steel types. If you like the Little Cup when its available, then Bronzor is a top pick.

Bronzor can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 305 – 344 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 381 – 430 CP at Level 25 with Windy or Snow weather boost

With a dual typing of Psychic/Steel typing, it is weak to Ground, Fire,  Dark, and Ghost types. As such, its best counters include the likes of Mega Absol, Mega Gengar, Mega Charizard Y, and Darmanitan. You can also go ahead with your most powerful Pokémon of any of the above types for a tier 1 raid if you don’t have these specific counters.

Being a Tier 1 raid boss, Bronzor is easy to solo.

Parting Words

Bronzor is a solid contender in the little cup for Pokémon 500 CP and under. Beyond that, Bronzong is usable in the great and ultra leagues, but there are so many other Pokémon that are better picks. It is also potentially shiny and a good option to raid if you are looking for that shiny variant. Bronzong does not have any special moves that you need to worry about, which is good for those that do not have elite TMs to throw around. I would use your free pass to look for a shiny if you still need it, but other than that, save your raid passes for other raids.

All the best, trainers! Happy Sinnoh Journey to you all! Comment any guides you want to see!
