Jolteon is a pure Electric type eeveelution, with the only super effective counters being Ground types. Jolteon counters are strong Ground-types like Groudon, Garchomp, and Rhyperior, with other generalists performing equally well.
Jolteon can be caught in the following CP-range:
- 1574 – 1650 (100% IV, level 20, no weather boost)
- 1967 – 2063 (100% IV, level 25, boosted by Rainy weather)
This page details Jolteon counters, raid counters, and the Jolteon solo strategy.
Jolteon was the hardest Tier 3 Raid boss when raids originally came out and was thought impossible to solo. However, trainers now have access to the powerful king of Ground-types, Groudon. In clear weather Groudon can mop the floor with Jolteon, but how about in every other instance? Let’s find out!
Jolteon Raid Counters
As Jolteon is only weak to Ground type Pokemon clearly the best counters for it are Groudon and Garchomp. You should try to avoid attacking with Electric, and Steel type attacks as they will be not very effective.
Also, avoid Water and type Pokemon because Jolteon attacks will be super-effective against them. Dragon type Pokemon are also a great choice because they take reduced damage from Jolteon attacks.

Jolteon has access to the following moves:
|Fast move||Charge move|
Jolteon has access to only Electric type moves that deal not very effective damage to Dragon, Grass, Electric and Ground type Pokemon.
Jolteon is boosted by Rainy weather so you should try to avoid it unless you want to catch boosted Jolteon at level 25.
It can be possible to solo Jolteon, both with and without weather boost, however, it requires near max level high IV Pokémon to tackle it without any sort of weather boost.Sunny is the best weather for a Jolteon solo, as it boosts the kings, Groudon and Garchomp, to where even level 25 Groudon or Garchomp can manage a solo win.
During Cloudy weather it is recommended to use (apart from Groudon) Fighting type Pokemon like Breloom and Machamp with Counter and Dynamic Punch.Fog weather will boost the power of your Dark and Ghost type moves so you should use Mewtwo, Gengar, and Giratina with Shadow Ball.
