Croagunk Raid Guide

Posted in

Croagunk is a Tier 1 raid boss in Pokémon Go and adds to the Fashion Week 2021 with a turned cap. Plus, it can be shiny!

Croagunk has an absolutely gorgeous shiny and it can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 500- 544 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 625- 680 CP at Level 25 with Cloudy weather boost

It is a dual Poison and Fighting type and Tier 1. As such, it can be easily defeated by using your Psychic Flying and Ground types. The weakness to Psychic is 2x. 

It is worth noting that costumed Croagunk cannot be evolved into a Toxicroak
