Toxicroak

Toxicroak is a Tier 3 raid boss in Pokémon Go. With a dual typing of Poison Fighting, it is boosted by Cloudy weather and its counters include strong Psychic, Flying and Ground type Pokémon. It has a 4x weakness to the Psychic typing and as such, its main counters include strong counters such as Mewtwo, Latios, Metagross and Espeon.

Being a Tier 3 raid boss with a 4x weakness, it is easily soloable by high-level trainers and low-level trainers can look to beat it effortlessly with a team of 2-3 trainers.

Toxicroak is a pretty viable Pokémon in the Great League and to an extent, in the Ultra League. As we will see from the catchable CP range, the non-weather boosted variant can be used in GL while the weather boosted variant can be used in the UL.
