Inkay is a dual Dark and Psychic type tier 1 raid boss, with a raid boss CP of 2903. Best Inkay counters are strong Bug and Fairy type Pokémon, but with it being a tier 1 raid boss, any powerful generalist Pokémon can hit hard and get this ghost taken down quickly. It should be an easy solo for a trainer of any level.

The CP ranges of Inkay are as follows:

  • 486 – 529 (at level 20)
  • 608 – 662 (at level 25 with Windy and Fog weather boost)

Inkay Raid Counters

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.

Let’s check out the top raid counters for Inkay:
