Miltank is a Generation 2 Pokémon that is making an appearance in raids as a Tier 3 Boss during the Valentine’s Day Event 2019. Miltank is a normal type, meaning it is weak to just fighting types, while only resisting ghost types. It is boosted by partly cloudy weather, has a Raid Boss CP of 14883, and leads to its capture CPs being in the following ranges:
- 1276 –1345 CP for a regular Level 20 encounter
- 1595 –1682 CP for a Partly Cloudy weather boosted encounter (Level 25)
Miltank has a stat composition of 157 Attack, 193 Defense, and 216 Stamina leading to a Max CP of 2354.
Unlike its over-hyped friend Chansey, Miltank is actually a bit of a force to be reckoned with. It can still be soloed by trainers utilizing high level fighting type counters. However, it is nowhere as easy as Porygon and Chansey. Movesets, your choice of Pokémon, and their levels (hopefully all at or above level 30), can determine a successful solo or not. Be sure to take all of this into consideration.
Miltank Raid Counters
|WEAKNESS Fighting||BOOSTED BY Partly Cloudy|
*Italics indicates Legacy.
Miltank has access to the following moves:
- Zen Headbutt Psychic and Tackle Normal
- Stomp Normal, Body Slam Normal, Gyro Ball Steel, Ice Beam Ice, and Thunderbolt Electric.
None of these particularly change the counters, they merely determine how annoying of a boss it is. Its normal type STAB moves in Tackle, Stomp, and Body Slam are actually the least of your worries. The worst offenders to your team being the likes of any set with Zen Headbutt as a fast move, and sets with Ice Beam that shred any Breloom leads.
Weather EffectsPartly Cloudy weather will allow for a boosted raid, although it will make it a bit harder to tackle if Miltank is packing normal moves. Otherwise, your best option will be to take Miltank will be in cloudy weather where the fighting types will go crazy with no repercussions. Since Miltank was given a wide and diverse movepool, nearly any weather can boost something, so pay attention to the skies trainers!
