Stakataka Raid Guide (Ultra Beast)

Posted in

Stakataka is a Steel and Rock type Ultra Beast Raid Boss. This defensive block tower is weak to Water attackers, and 2x weak to both Ground and Fighting types. Stakataka will feature in raids in the Eastern Hemisphere.

Stakataka can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 1799 –1882 CP at level 20, no weather boost
  • 2249 – 2353 CP at level 25 with Partly Cloudy or Snow weather boost

Given how bulky Stakataka is with it’s high defence, we would recommend 3-5 trainers who are high level, and more if you don’t have optimal teams. This guide will tell you how to beat this castle-looking Ultra Beast, as well as its optimal stats, moves and CP range.

Parting words

Were Stakataka able to be entered as a gym defender, it would be a considerable wall to get past. Fortunately, that won’t happen, but it’s movepool might prevent it being useful in battle. 

Good luck raiding, trainers!
