Floatzel Raid Guide

Floatzel is a Tier 3 Raid Boss in Pokémon GO (16082 Combat Power). Its best counters are strong Electric-types such as Raikou, Electivire, and Magnezone. Floatzel is also weak to Grass-type moves, so Roserade, Sceptile, Venusaur, and Kantonian Exeggutor, are also featured in its counter list.

The following CP values are possible when caught in a post-raid encounter:

  • 1323- 1396 CP for a regular Level 20 encounter
  • 1655- 1745 CP for a Rainy weather boosted encounter (Level 25)

Floatzel Base Stats

  • Attack: 221
  • Defense: 114
  • Stamina: 198
  • Max CP: 2443
