Kyogre Raid Guide


Kyogre is a Tier 5 Legendary Raid Boss in Pokémon Go, being a member of the Weather Trio with Groudon and Rayquaza. Best Kyogre counters are strong Electric and Grass-type Pokémon, but it heavily depends on Kyogre’s moveset.

Kyogre Raid Boss CP is 54411, and you can catch it in the following CP Ranges:

  • 2260 CP to 2351 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 2825 CP to 2939 CP at Level 25, with Rainy weather

Kyogre can be duoed with high level Grass and Electric Pokémon boosted by their respective weather conditions. Beyond that challenge, we recommend groups of 3-6, for high-level trainers, or 7-20 for lower level trainers.

Kyogre Moves

Kyogre has access to the following moves, completely following its lore and control over sea and weather:

Fast moves Charge moves
Waterfall Water
  • Hydro Pump Water
  • Surf Water
  • Blizzard Ice
  • Thunder Electric

Blizzard is the most difficult Kyogre moveset as it renders Grass types unusable, as they are immediately taken out in one hit.

This isn’t to say that the Grass type is not useful, the Grass-type counters are viable, especially during Sunny weather, but Blizzard Kyogre will decimate your Grass team and OHKO (One Hit KO) almost every Grass attacker in the game.

Weather Pro Con
Sunny Boosts Grass types
Partly Cloudy
Snow Boost’s Kyogre’s Blizzard Ice move
Rainy Allows a Level 25 Encounter from Weather Boost. Boosts Electric types Boost’s Kyogre’s Waterfall, Hydro Pump Water, and Thunder Electric

Tips for Catching Kyogre

Kyogre is notoriously difficult to catch due to its erratic behavior and frequent attacks in the capture bonus encounter. Kyogre will move from left to right, similar to other floating Pokémon, adding an additional level of frustration.

We suggest you practice curveballs from both screen ends and both rotations — especially if you’re not a “pro level curver.” We created a chart that displays all throw + berry combo chances to catch Kyogre:

Berry Curve Throw type
Normal Nice Great Excellent
No Berry
2.00% 2.30% 3.00% 3.70%
Curve 3.40% 3.91% 5.10% 6.29%
Razz Berry
3.00% 3.45% 4.50% 5.55%
Curve 5.10% 5.87% 6.29% 7.65%
Golden Razz Berry
5.00% 5.75% 7.50% 9.25%
Curve 8.50% 9.78% 12.75% 15.73%
