Lampent

On Litwick Community Day Lampent will be available as a special tier 4 raid boss, with a raid boss CP of 19902.

This Ghost/Fire type Pokémon evolves into the powerful and elusive Chandelure, a PvE monster from both the Ghost and Fire typings.

Lampent can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 917- 976 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 1146 – 1220 CP at Level 25 with Fog or Sunny weather boost

With its dual Ghost and Fire typing, it is weak to the Dark, Ghost, Ground, Rock and Water types. As a tier 4, Lampent will be a minimum of a duo for high level trainers with maxed out counters and Megas, for others we would recommend 3-5 trainers.

Lampent 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.

The best counters for Lampent are the following:

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Astonish Ghost
  • Ember Fire
  • Flame Burst Fire
  • Heat Wave Fire
  • Energy Ball Grass

Astonish has always been a pathetic move per see. Ember deals more damage but charges slower than Astonish.

Its charged moves are decent but they won’t bother you much. With low bulk, this one is an easy one for the powerful types that it is weak to.

This lamp is lit and spooky. You are strongly recommended to do its raids and get a high IV variant for yourself.

All the best, trainers!
