Kartana Raid Guide (Ultra Beast)

Related Articles


Kartana is an Grass and Steel type Ultra Beast Raid Boss. Optimal Kartana counters include powerful Fighting and Fire types, with an emphasis on the Fire-types, as it is 2x weak to Fire

Kartana can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 2010 –2101 CP at level 20, no weather boost
  • 2512 – 2626 CP at level 25 with Sunny or Snow weather boost

Depending on your levels and counters, we would recommend 3-5 trainers who are high level, and more if you don’t have optimal teams. This guide will tell you how to beat this origami inspired beast, as well as its optimal stats, moves and CP range.

Kartana 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 Kartana:
