Weather EffectsSunny weather boosts both your best counters, and the raid boss itself. Due to this, it actually lowers the time to win for Tangela, so Sunny weather is the best weather to make a attempt. Rainy weather will boost its Bug type moves, and Cloudy will make its Sludge Bomb even more of a pain. Luckily, your countering Bug or Poison types will also get a boost under these weather conditions. Super weird huh? To help visualize this, here is a weather table for your viewing pleasure.
|Sunny||Boosts your Fire counters, gives you a weather boosted Tangela||Boosts boss’ Vine Whip, Solar Beam, and Grass Knot|
|Partly Cloudy||No pros nor cons|
|Cloudy||Boosts your Poison counters||Boosts boss’ Sludge Bomb charge move|
|Rainy||Boosts your Bug counters||Boosts boss’ Infestation fast move|
|Snow||Boosts your Ice counters||–|
|Fog||No pros nor cons|
