Phantump Raid Guide

Posted in

Phantump is a Tier 1 raid boss in Pokémon GO, with a raid boss CP of 3725. It is an immensely popular Pokémon, going from an adorable little ghost with a really dark dex entry to a haunted tree called Trevenant that would put the Whomping Willow to shame. Trevenant is slated to be a PvP monster and therefore, this debuting mon is a must-catch!

Phantump is a Ghost/Grass type and as such, it is weak to the Dark, Fire, Flying, Ghost and Ice types.

It can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 595 – 642 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 743 – 802 CP at Level 25 with Fog or Sunny weather boost

As it is a Tier 1 boss, it is an easy solo.

Phantump 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.
