Uxie Raid Counters Guide

Uxie is a member of the Lake Trio with Azelf and Mesprit, a legendary trio introduced in Generation 4. Uxie is a Psychic type, meaning it is weak to Dark, Bug, and Ghost types, while resisting Fighting and Psychic types. It is boosted by Windy weather, and leads to its capture CPs being in the following ranges:

  • 1370-1442 CP for a regular Level 20 encounter
  • 1712-1803 CP for a Windy weather boosted encounter (Level 25)

Uxie has a stat composition of 156 Attack, 270 Defense, and 181 Stamina leading to a Max CP of 2524. What this means is that, in comparison to a middle of the road Mesprit and the attack oriented Azelf, Uxie is going to be the hardest of the group to take down.  It appears that cannot be duoed, even with Fog weather boost and friendship bonuses. Gengar would be the only current option in that regard, but the numerous rejoins may hinder that effort. We would suggest you take on Uxie in groups of 4-8, for high level players, or 9-20, for lower leveled players.

Pokemon GO MewtwoMewtwo Psycho Cut Psychic Shadow Ball * Ghost
Mewtwo will always rear its head when something needs to be shooketh by a Ghost-type move. It may be legacy now, but it deserves to be here on account of the high damage and low faint counts.
Pokemon GO GengarGengar

  • * Lick Ghost
  • Hex Ghost
Shadow Ball Ghost
Gengar’s best moves may all be legacy or timed exclusives, but even with Hex this Pokémon packs a punch and deals the most damage of any counter out there. *inserts obligatory mention of how it faints a lot and is the example of a glass cannon*
Excellent Uxie raid counters
Pokemon GO BanetteBanette Shadow Claw Ghost Shadow Ball Ghost
This is a rare time where you will see the knockoff Gengar being one of the greatest counters on the list. Due to Uxie’s terribly low attack stat, a glass cannon like Banette can really shine, being one of the fastest time to wins on the list.
Pokemon GO WeavileWeavile Feint Attack Dark Foul Play Dark
Weavile will be the most useful here with Uxie in comparison to the others in the lake trio, as Uxie cannot throw out a Fire Blast to melt Weavile and it will not dole out the damage to hurt this glass cannon.

Uxie Moveset

Uxie has access to the following moves:

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Extrasensory Psychic
  • Confusion Psychic
  • Thunder Electric
  • Future Sight Psychic
  • Swift Normal

Unlike the surprise of Azelf with Fire Blast, the move sets you can encounter won’t be much of a shock to players and your teams can remain consistent in counters no matter what move Uxie has to hit you with.

Weather Effects

Windy weather will bring you a boosted encounter, although it means that Uxie will hit harder with its wide variety of Psychic moves. Otherwise, your beneficial weather types will be Rainy and Fog, although Rainy will boost that oddball Thunder in Uxie’s moveset.

Weather Pro Con
Windy Allows a Level 25 Encounter from Weather Boost. Boosts Uxie’s Extrasensory, Confusion, and Future Sight Psychic moves
Partly Cloudy Boosts Uxie’s Swift Normal move
Rainy Boosts Bug types Boosts Uxie’s Thunder Electric moves
Fog Boosts Dark and Ghost types
