Bulbasaur Raid Guide

Posted in


Bulbasaur is a Grass/Poison type 1* Raid Boss. Optimal raid counters include Bug, Fire, Flying, Psychic, and Ice types. Bulbasaur evolves into the powerful Venusaur and then into Mega Venusaur, one of the best Grass types in the meta. 

It is an easy solo.

Bulbasaur Counters

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 being said, if you have the shadow form of a listed raid counter Pokémon powered up and TMed, use it.

Let’s check out the top raid counters for Bulbasaur:
