The fabled Gyarados is now a level 4 Raid boss in Pokémon GO! With 33893 Raid Boss CP and a Water and typing. Gyarados is double weak to Electric-type Pokémon, so Raikou, Electivire, Magnezone, Zapdos, Luxray & Jolteon are your best bets.
Gyarados can be duoed under the right conditions and the right counters. However, it is recommended that you use between 3 to 5 high-level trainers, and 6 to 8 lower level trainers.
In this guide, we will cover what the best counters to take down Gyarados are, what the best strategy is, and what CPs you should watch out for after your successful battle.
Gyarados can be caught with the following Combat Values:
- 1855 – 1937 CP no weather boost
- 2319 – 2422 CP boosted by Windy or Rainy
|Max CP 3391|
|ATK 237||DEF 186||HP 216|

As you can see, Electric Pokémon are by far your best option. If you are short on Electric types, Pokemon with Electric-type moves such has Attack Deoxys, Mew, Porygon-Z, Speed Deoxys are decent options.
Gyarados Moveset Analysis
Gyarados can have the following moves in a raid battle and when captured:
|Fast Moves||Charge Moves|
Honestly, none of Gyarados’ move combinations are overly scary. The combination of Bite and Outrage shows as the highest “Time to Win”, however, none of the movesets cover the Electric types that you should be using. So there’s nothing to be concerned about.
Good luck Trainers! Stay safe out there.
