Celebi is a Mythical Pokémon in Pokémon GO, which we can only assume to be a level 5 Mythical Raid Boss, with 37733 Raid Boss CP and a Grass / Psychic typing. Celebi counters are mostly strong Fire and Bug Pokémon.

Celebi´s max capture combat power is as follows:

  • 1766 CP – no weather boost, LVL 20, 100% IV
  • 2207 CPWindy or Sunny weather, LVL 25, 100% IV

In this guide, you will learn which Pokémon are best suited as Celebi Raid counters. Assuming that Celebi is released the same way as Legendaries, it is safe to assume Celebi is not soloable. You will need a raid group of at least 4 players to take down Celebi.

Celebi, being a Psychic / Grass type Pokémon, has a double weakness to Bug types which comes in very handy for the average raider. Ideally, every player would have a high CP team of Scizors and Entei/Moltres.

However, if you don’t, the DPS (Damage per second) difference between these counters is not that big, so as long as you have a high CP team composed of any of the Pokémon you see above, you should be just fine.

Celebi has access to the following moves:

  • Confusion Psychic (Fast)
  • Charge Beam Electric (Fast)
  • Hyper Beam Normal (Charged, 1 bar)
  • Dazzling Gleam Fairy (Charged, 2 bars)
  • Psychic Psychic (Charged, 1 bar)

Weather influence

Best weather to raid: Sunny

Sunny weather will boost Celebi, reducing the amount of stardust you need to spend in order to power it up. Celebi has no moves that benefit from sunny weather, despite it being a Grass type. In sunny weather, your Fire Celebi counters (Moltres, Entei, Flareon) take priority.
