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).

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.

Beneficial Mega Evolutions

Since Hisuian Typhlosion is a Fire and Ghost-type Pokémon, having these Megas active will give you 1 (or 2 for max level Mega) additional Candy per catch, and increase the odds to get Candy XL (high and max level Megas only).

We are focusing on Mega Pokémon which grant additional Candy, rather than focusing on those who increase your damage against H-Typhlosion, because it is an easy fight regardless of which Mega you use.

Hex Ghost Fire Punch Fire
  Wild Charge Electric
  Overheat Fire

Weather Effects

Weather Pro Attacker Pro Hisuian Typhlosion
Sunny/Sunny Boosts Super Effective Ground type attacks  Boosts Fire type moves
Partly Cloudy Boosts Super Effective Rock type attacks
Rainy Boosts Super Effective Water type attacks  Boosts Electric type moves
Fog Boosts Super Effective Dark and Ghost type attacks  Boosts Ghost type moves

The only weather that will boost your counters but not Hisuian Typhlosions attacks will be Partly Cloudy. However, your top attackers will be using Ground, Water and Dark -type moves, where the desirable weather could also boost Hisuian Typhlosion’s potential movepool. Fear not though Trainers, as this is a Tier 3 boss, if you come well prepared with a team of top attackers this raid will not be difficult.
