Zangoose is a three star raid boss in Pokémon GO. The best counters for Zangoose are strong Fighting types. It is a Normal type Pokémon and has a raid boss CP of 16765. It can be caught with the following perfect CPs:
- 1310 – 1381 CP (raid catch with no weather boost, level 20)
- 1638 – 1727 CP (raid catch with Partly Cloudy weather boost, level 25)
Zangoose can be soloed by a high level trainer with strong counters, but if you are just starting out and have no high level Fighting-types, we would recommend inviting 1-2 more friends to help you.
Zangoose is only weak to Fighting types. The table below shows the best Zangoose counters:
|The supreme Zangoose Raid Counters|
|Machamp (Shadow)||Counter Fighting||Dynamic Punch Fighting|
|Lucario||Counter Fighting||Aura Sphere Fighting|
|Conkeldurr||Counter Fighting||Dynamic Punch Fighting|
|Great Zangoose raid counters|
|Machamp||Counter Fighting||Dynamic Punch Fighting|
|Breloom||Counter Fighting||Dynamic PunchFighting|
|Lopunny (Mega)||Low Kick Fighting||Focus Blast Fighting|
|Hariyama||Counter Fighting||Dynamic Punch Fighting|
|Heracross||Counter Fighting||Close Combat Fighting|
|Sirfetch'd||Counter Fighting||Close Combat Fighting|
|Toxicroak||Counter Fighting||Dynamic Punch Fighting|
|Sawk||Low Kick Fighting||Focus Blast Fighting|
|Great generalist counters|
|Mewtwo||Confusion Psychic||Psystrike* Psychic|
|Charizard (Mega Y)||Fire Spin Ghost||Blast Burn* Ghost|
A surprisingly good pick is Heracross. With its added Bug typing, it will resist almost all moves except Shadow Claw, which is very helpful given Heracross’ very low bulk.
Zangoose movepool is all over the place, but you have to be careful of its coverage. If battling against [Close Combat], make sure to dodge when you are using Mega Lopunny to boost the Fighting-moves of other raiders.
|Fast move||Charge move|
If you are not using Lopunny or Lucario, your usual Fighting-type team consisting of either Conkeldurr or Machamp shall be great. If you’ve reached around Level 30 for these Pokémon, it would be an easy solo even without dodging.
