Spheal 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.

Poor Spheal is only a tier 1 raid, so you can pretty much use anything against it to win. Sorry Speahl! The Spheal family are great purple shinies that will look great in any collection, and Walrein can be a decent budget Ice type attacker for raids.

All the best, trainers!
