Dewgong Raid Guide

Posted in

Dewgong is a Tier-3 Raid Water Ice boss with a raid boss CP of 12803. Dewgong is lacking in offence, but is decently bulky for a Tier-3 raid boss. Luckily it can be soloed easily.

Dewgong can be caught from raids in the following Combat Power ranges:

  • 1071 CP – 1134 CP (Level 20, no weather Boost)
  • 1339 CP – 1418 CP (Level 25, Snow or Rainy)

Dewgong isn’t what you would call a useful PvE Pokémon, given the low stats. However, the low Attack and higher Defence/Stamina lend themselves well to PvP.

You can see from the Pokémon listed that your best bet is to use strong Electric, Rock, and Fighting-type moves.  Zap zap zap.  Three or four good counters and you should be in a solid position to solo Dewgong.  If you’re unsure, or less confident one other reasonably prepared trainer should be enough to take it down.

Dewgong Move Sets

Dewgong has access to this set of moves as a raid boss:

Fast Moves Charge Moves
Frost Breath Ice Blizzard Ice
Iron Tail Steel Aurora Beam Ice
  Water Pulse Water
  Drill Run Ground
  Liquidation Water

Frost Breath, Blizzard, and Aurora Beam are all moves that could be a concern for Grass-types. Iron Tail could cause problems for Rock types, however, it’s not anything to be very concerned over.
