Trainers, the following Raid Boss List is for Raids beginning June 27th, 2019 at 1 PM PDT in Pokémon GO, following the return of Groudon into battles. We expect this raid boss list to be available until Groudon leaves on July 10th.

1 Lotad  

Here are our raiding recommendations:

  • Tier 1 – Shiny Hunting, all four Tier 1 Bosses are available in their shiny forms.
  • Tier 2 – Roselia and Breloom are probably the cream of the crop in terms of usefulness and Mawile is still around if you need the Shiny.
  • Tier 3 – Machamp is always worth harvesting as it remains the premier Fighting-type available. Tangela could be useful if you are low on other good Grass-type counters and Alolan Raichu is there for the Shiny.
  • 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. Shiftry is a decent Groudon counter if you need to add to your team.
