Medicham Raid Guide

Posted in

Medicham is a Psychic and Fighting type Tier Three Raid Boss. Optimal Medicham counters are powerful Fairy Flying and Ghost types. Medicham can be shiny when encountered, due to it being released as a Mega Pokémon in Pokémon GO! It has a boosted shiny rate, roughly 1/64 odds. However you cannot obtain Mega Energy from Medicham as a Tier Three Raid Boss.

Medicham can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 764 –817 CP at level 20, no weather boost
  • 955 – 1022 CP at level 25 with Cloudy or Windy weather boost

Depending on your levels and counters, Medicham can be soloed! Newer trainers without ideal counters may want to bring a friend.

Parting words

Medicham has long been a main stay of Great League PvP, with pvpoke currently ranking it as their #21! The ideal stat spread is 5/15/15 built using XL Candy which isn’t a possible IV spread from raids, but you can still get something fairly usable from a raid.
