  • 1455 (perfect IV, no weather Boost)
  • 1819 (perfect IV, Rainy or Snow)

Cloyster is soloable but with a large defense stat of 256 it will not be an easy fight. Cloyster is a water and ice type with weakness to electric, grass, rock and fighting type moves.

With a wide range of weaknesses there are a lot of top counters to use and we would suggest adapting the team you are using to match the local weather conditions. Shadows are purposefully excluded due to resources needed to power up but if you have a shadow version of any of the below then swap it in!
