Stantler 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.

Raid Boss Movepool

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Tackle Normal
  • Zen Headbutt Psychic
  • Stomp Normal
  • Megahorn Bug
  • Wild Charge Electric

Tackle has STAB but is more of a tickle.

Zen Headbutt deals super-effective damage to your Fighting types but the lack of STAB and Stantler’s low ATK makes it less concerning.

Don’t worry about Stomp. The Fighting types resist it and it doesn’t do too much damage in the first place.

Megahorn is a 1-bar charged move but hits quite hard. Wild Charge is 2-bar and hits hard again. It is advisable o dodge these to make quick work of this buck.


Stantler doesn’t much much meta usage, but that shiny is gorgeous! Trainers with decent Fighting type powered up counters shouldn’t struggle too badly here, but lower level trainers with more budget options might want to pair up to ensure success.

All the best, trainers!
