Here are our raiding recommendations:

  • Tier 1 – Shiny hunting all the way! All T1 Bosses are available in their shiny forms.
  • Tier 2 – Same can be said about T2 Bosses, as Sneasel is the only one without a possible shiny encounter.
  • Tier 3 – Machamp is always worth harvesting as it remains the premier Fighting-type available. Alolan Raichu and Scyther have their shiny forms available, and they are both good in PvP.
  • Tier 4 – Tyranitar is the best of the Tier 4 Raids this time around, while Absol and Alolan Marowak are there if you still need their shiny variants. Houndoom is a decent Dark-type attacker and counter for Armored Mewtwo, while Shiftry can be a good addition to your PvP team.

Are you ready to harness the power of Armored Mewtwo in Raid Battles, Trainers? Are you excited for its arrival? Are there other Raid Bosses you’re excited for as well? Make sure to check our Raid Guides to pick the best counters and prepare your team to take on these Raid Bosses! Remember Raid Bosses can be taken down faster until September 2nd, 2019, as one of the bonuses from the Pokémon GO third anniversary event.

Best of luck on your future adventures, and have fun challenging Armored Mewtwo, Trainers!
