Features If the workings of the cosmos are in your favor, you may encounter a Shiny Cresselia!

This Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon is said to represent the crescent moon, but don’t let its graceful exterior lull you during battle. Psychic-type Pokémon are weak against Bug-, Ghost-, and Dark-type Pokémon, so be sure to have those ready!

Cresselia has a Raid Boss CP of 33794 and is boosted by Windy weather, which leads to its capture CPs being in the following ranges:

  • 1555 CP – 1633 CP for a regular Level 20 encounter.
  • 1944 CP – 2041 CP for a Windy weather boosted encounter (Level 25).

Cresselia has a stat composition of 152 Attack, 258 Defense, and 260 Stamina leading to a Max CP of 2857. It cannot be duoed, even with Fog weather boost and friendship bonuses. We would suggest you take on Cresselia in groups of 4-8, for high-level players, or 9-20, for lower level players.
