Best Mega Pokémon to use in a Hisuian Braviary Raid

Mega Gengar and Mega Manectric lead the pack, but other Mega Pokémon do fine as well. 

Reminder: Mega-Evolved Pokémon give other Pokémon special bonuses when brought to a Raid Battle. While a Mega-Evolved Pokémon is on the battlefield, all Trainers’ Pokémon receive an attack boost to all their attacks and gain an additional attack boost if their attack types match the Mega-Evolved Pokémon’s type(s).
