Necrozma Raid Guide

Necrozma is a pure Psychic type 5-tier Raid boss. You should bring your strongest Bug, Dark, and Ghost types to make quick work of this challenging battle. Shiny Necrozma is available in Pokémon GO for those battling in person at GO Fest Sendai, Madrid and New York. It will become available globally during the Global GO Fest. You can capture Necrozma in the following CP ranges:

  • 2018 CP – 2104 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 2522 CP – 2630 CP at Level 25 with Windy weather boost

Necrozma can prove to be a challenge without the right setup of Pokémon. We suggest a minimum group size of 3 – 7 Trainers to defeat Necrozma in a 5-tier Raid.
