Duskull Raid Guide


Duskull is a pure Ghost type tier 1 raid boss, with a raid boss CP of 2770. Best Duskull counters are strong Dark and Ghost type Pokémon, but with it being a tier 1 raid boss, any powerful generalist Pokémon can hit hard and get this ghost taken down quickly. It should be an easy solo for a trainer of any level.

The CP ranges of Duskull are as follows:

  • 364 – 403 (at level 20)
  • 456 – 504 (at level 25 with Fog weather boost)

Duskull Raid 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.
