Jynx is a high DPS glass cannon with access to the following moves:

  • Confusion Psychic (fast)
  • Frost Breath Ice (fast)
  • Avalanche Ice (2 bar charged)
  • Psyshock Psychic (3 bar charged)
  • Draining Kiss Fairy (2 bar charged)

We always recommend raiding in weather that boosts raid bosses in order to reduce Stardust cost needed to power them up. Jynx is no exception here and Snow weather is a perfect opportunity to showcase how strong your Meteor Mash Metagross is. If you’re struggling with Jynx solo attempts, use Fire typed counters under Sunny weather.

Jynx really should not be a big problem to solo, despite its high DPS (the highest Ice type DPS aside from Mamoswine).
