Top Hisuian Samurott Counters Raid icon

Since Shadow Pokémon are extremely expensive to power up and require specific events to remove Frustration with a Charge TM, they will NOT be listed as raid counters in this article. That being said, if you have the shadow form of a listed raid counter Pokémon powered up and TMed, use it.

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).

Fast Moves Charge Moves
Fury Cutter Bug Dark Pulse Dark

Rainy Boosts Super Effective Bug and Electric type attacks Boosts Bug and Water type moves

Your top attackers will be boosted by Sunny, Sunny and Cloudy weather which gives some versatility to this raid day. Given Hisuian Samurott is a 3 Star boss you will be able to complete the raid without the edge of Weather Boosted attacks.
