Espurr Raid Guide

Posted in

Lampent is a Tier 1 raid boss in Pokémon Go and is a part of the Halloween Mischief Event Part 1: Creepy Companions, running from October 15 – October 22, 2021.

Espurr is a pure Psychic type and as such, it is weak to the Bug, Dark and Ghost types.

It can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 669- 719 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 837 – 899 CP at Level 25 with Windy weather boost

As it is a Tier 1 boss, it is an easy solo.
