Genesect (Chill)

Best Genesect counters are strong Fire Types, such as Chandelure, Reshiram, Darmanitan, Moltres, Charizard, Heatran, Blaziken and others. Genesect is double weak to Fire Type moves. Genesect is boosted by Rainy and Snow weather.

Genesect perfect CPs from raids are:

  • 1916 CP for a regular encounter (Level 20)
  • 2395 CP for a weather boosted encounter (Level 25, Rainy and Snow )

Genesect is transferable but not tradable. Genesect is a Bug and Steel-type Mythical Pokémon that was introduced in Generation V. Genesect is a Tier 5 Raid Boss with 47836 CP.

Genesect Raid Counters

Since Genesect has attack heavy stats it should be fairly easy duo with the right counters. A worst case scenario is a really easy trio for lower lever trainers or without the perfect counters.

That being said, our recommendation is that you have 2 – 3 high level trainers for Genesect raids. For groups larger than 5, consider splitting into smaller groups for better raid rewards.
