Herdier Raid Guide


Suicune Raid Guide

Raikou Raid Guide


Herdier is a three star Normal type raid boss. Your best counters are strong Fighting types such as Lucario, Machamp and Conkeldurr. Herdier is boosted by Partly Cloudy weather. Herdiers perfect CP from raid are:

  • 904 CP for a regular encounter (Level 20)
  • 1130 for a weather boosted encounter (Level 25 in Partly Cloudy weather)

As a three star raid boss Herdier is easily soloable for anyone with a decent team of Fighting type Pokémon. For lower level trainers who may have less ideal counters we recommend groups of 2-5.

Fighting types are weak to Fairy move Play Rough so that will do a bit of damage, but as Herdier does not have access to STAB with these moves, we wouldn’t worry too much.
