Whenever the shadow variant of a Pokémon listed below is available in the game, it is strongly recommended to use it over its regular/purified counterpart. However, since Shadow Pokémon are extremely expensive to power up and require specific events to TM away Frustration, they will NOT be listed as raid counters in this article.

Sewaddle has plenty of counters, but if you don’t have ANY of the Pokémon listed above powered up, you can always use:

  • Generalist” Pokémon capable of dealing neutral damage such as Psycho Cut + Psystrike* Mewtwo
  • Eevolutions capable of dealing super effective damage such as Flareon
  • Other heavy-hitting megas

But please, try to use the Pokémon listed above if possible and take advantage of Sewaddle’s double weakness to fire and flying type move.

Leavanny (Sewaddle’s final evolution) has some niche use in the PvP meta, but that’s about it. Its moveset is actually pretty interesting as it can play different roles, but the main issue with Leavanny is that it has plenty of weaknesses and can’t take too many hits. It’s nowhere near meta territory, but if you’re one of those PvP spice lords, Leavanny can put in some work under the right circumstances.

We hope you found this raid guide useful, happy hunting!
