Raticate Raid Guide

Posted in

Raticate is a Tier 3 raid boss. Being a pure Normal, it is weak to only the Fighting type.

Obtainable CP Values

This big rat Pokémon is obtainable with the following CP values:

  • 930 – 989 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 1163 – 1236 CP at Level 25 with Partly Cloudy weather boost

Raticate is an easy solo raid for high-level trainers. 2-3 low-level players can beat Raticate by using optimal Fighting type counters.

It is worth noting that Raticate caught during the Pokémon Go New Year 2023 Event will be wearing a party hat, and can be shiny!

Raticate 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.
