Quagsire Raid Guide

Posted in

Quahsire is a Tier 3 raid boss in Pokémon Go. Being a Water andGround type, it is only weak to the Grass type. As an OG mud boi, it is pretty useful in the Great League.

Quagsire can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 1075 – 1138 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 1343 – 1423 CP at Level 25 with Rainy or Sunny weather boost

Generally, 1 high-level trainer can beat Quagsire with optimal counters. Otherwise, 2-3 trainers will suffice.
