Sawk Raid Guide

Posted in

Sawk is a pure Fighting type 3-Star Raid boss. Best Sawk raid counters include powerful Fairy, Flying, and Psychic types to make quick work of this challenging bout. Shiny Sawk is available in Pokémon GO. You can capture Sawk in the following CP ranges:

  • 1517 CP – 1593 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 1897 CP – 1991 CP at Level 25 with Cloudy weather boost

Sawk shouldn’t prove to be too much of a challenge with the right Pokémon. We suggest a minimum group size of 1 – 3 Trainers to defeat Sawk in a 3-Star Raid.
