Screech As First Move Is Great

Screech lowers the defense of Pokemon by 2 folds making Physical Damage deal more damage to enemies. It matches well with the Physical Attacker, Koraidon. Screech however has a pretty low Accuracy so if it did not hit the first time, no need to force to use the attack.

Be Careful With Types That Are Strong Against Fighting Type

  1. PoisonFlyingPsychicBugFairy
  2. Ghost

For Koraidon, you will be using mainly fighting Types. So when you are fighting types that are listed above, use other Pokemon.

Use Metal Sound At The Start

Metal Sound lowers the Special Defense of the enemy Pokemon by 2 folds. This works great with the Special Attacker Miraidon. It is great to pair Miraidon with a team of Special Attackers. However, note that Metal Sound has a fairly low accuracy so no need to force the use of the attack.

Care For Pokemon Strong Against Electric Types

  2. Ground

To Care For HP Use "Sitrus Berry" or "Shell Bell"

Amazing Against Dragon Types

Miraidon and Koraidon are bad against Dragon Type raids so in this case, Iron Valiant will shine. This is because of Iron Valiant's very high speed and the ability to use Drain Punch as a powerful damaging move.

Can Also Be Tank Type

With the ability, Reflect and Light Screen, Iron Valiant can also be a support for the team. However, the durability of Iron Valiant is not very high so make sure to watch your HP during the set-up phase.

Used Items Gets Recovered After The Raid

Do Not Let Tinkaton Hold Choice Band

The unique move of Tinkaton, Gigaton Hammer, cannot be used 2 times in a row. When Tinkaton is holding a Choice Band, after using Gigaton Hammer, the next round will be a blank round, so do not use a Choice Band

Raid Battle Tips & Strategy

Use The Weakness Of The Terra Type

Before entering a Raid Battle, make sure to check the Type of the Raid Battle. Do not forcefully use a Pokemon that is weak against the Raid Pokemon Type.

Recommended To Use "Go All Out!" At The Start


During Raids, the "Support" that can be done 3 times and status moves like Screech are great for having an easier Raid.

Avoid Making Your Pokemon Faint

In Tera Raids, making your Pokemon Faint is a huge time loss. So it is recommended to avoid it with HP recovering moves or increasing HP EVs.

Heal The Teammates When They Are About To Lose


By using Cheer's Heal Up, you can raise the HP of Team's Pokemon. Check the HP of your teammates and your Pokemon and use this cheer actively.

Do Not Forget To Use Terastal Form


After hiting 3 moves, you can transform your Pokemon into a Terastal.. This can easily boost the power of same type moves and is crucial when battling Tera Raids.
