Lickitung Raid Guide

Lickitung is a Normal-type Pokemon that is weak to Fighting-type attacks and is resistant to Ghost. It will be featured as a tier 4 raid boss (CP 14386) from 2pm to 5pm local time on Saturday 15th February with a chance of being shiny. It and it’s evolution Lickilicky will know Body Slam as an exclusive moves, helping them in the Great and Ultra league metas.

With a sole weakness to Fighting, the counters should be fairly clear. Just use Machamp, Lucario, and Conkeldurr. Breloom and Hariyama if you’re feeling spicy, or are doing a unique 6 challenge, but Lickitung’s so frail and weak you probably won’t need a full team even for a duo.

Lickitung can be beaten by 2+ trainers. It’s relatively easy, as tier 4 raids go, and is a joke in Cloudy weather.

It can be caught at the following CP values:

  • 752 – 806 No Weather Boost
  • 940 – 1008 Boosted by Partly Cloudy

Pokemon GO LucarioLucario Counter Fighting Aura Sphere Fighting
Lucario’s undeniably the strongest option against Lickitung, with excellent damage and an additional Steel-typing that makes it resistant to most of Lickitung’s moveset.
Pokemon GO ConkeldurrConkeldurr Counter Fighting Dynamic Punch Fighting
Practically a Machamp with extra damage and bulk. If you can get one to a high level, it’ll do wonders.
Pokemon GO MachampMachamp Counter Fighting Dynamic Punch Fighting
You probably have a few Machamp, and despite being mildly outclassed nowadays it’s still very available and strong, as well as only costing 25 candy to evolve fully when traded.

There’s not a ton of variety depending on the weather. Just use Machamps, and if you can afford them, Lucario and Conkeldurr.

Lickitung Moveset Analysis

Lickitung will have the following charge moves in battle, but during the raid day event the charge attack is guaranteed to change into Body Slam. Just make sure not to cut it too close.

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Lick Ghost
  • Zen Headbutt Psychic
  • Hyper Beam Normal
  • Power Whip Grass
  • Stomp Normal

It’s not a very threatening moveset. Zen Headbutt can sting a little, but the battle won’t last long enough to make it anything to be scared of as long as you’re in a decently sized group.

Stay safe and have fun, trainers!
