Espeon Psychic is a Raid Boss in Pokémon Go with 20837 Raid Boss CP when encountered as a Tier 3 Raid Boss. Best Espeon counters are strong Dark-type Pokémon like Darkrai, Weavile, and Hydreigon and Ghost-type Pokémon Giratina Origin Form, Chandelure, and Shadow Ball Mewtwo.
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 defences are low and its high attack builds your own Pokémon’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 an 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.
