Espeon Psychic is a Raid Boss in Pokemon Go with 20837 Raid Boss CP when encountered as a Tier 3 Raid Boss. Best Espeon counters are strong Ghost type Pokemon like Gengar, Shadow Ball Mewtwo and Dark Pokemon like Tyranitar and Weavile.
Espeon can have the following CP values when caught in a post-raid capture encounter:
- 1730 – 1811 CP in normal weather conditions
- 2162 – 2264 CP in Windy weather for weather boosts.
Espeon is a relatively easy boss as a Tier 3, as its defenses are low and its high attack builds your own Pokemon’s charge bars. It is certainly not the hardest Tier 3, and will prove to be a semi-easy solo for high level players. Looking at group sizes, high level players should attempt to tackle a Espeon with 1-4 players, and any other players will see success with groups ranging from 5-20 players.
In-game Espeon has the following stats: a Max CP of 3170, an Attack of 261, a Defense of 175, and a Stamina of 163.
