Tinkaton is a Steel/Fairy type and has excellent defense. Also its personal move, Gigaton Hammer has amazing power of 160 which has more Attack Power than looking at IVs.

Great against Dragon/Fairy Pokemon

Since it is great against Dragon and Fairy type moves which is a weakness for Koraidon/Miraidon. It will fill in your weaknesses which is a strong point. Especially if the Raid is weak against Steel types, you can use the "Gigaton Hammer" and it will be super effective.

Can Also Be Used For Support

It is a great Attacker when using Gigaton Hammer, but also it will learn Reflect and Light Screen as well, so it can be used for support in certain situations. If you can work your moves properly, completing the Raid will go smoothly.

    Tinkatink and Tinkatuff can be found on the Map. They will spawn in the areas near the ruins.

    If You Want To Save Money, You Would Want To Capture By Reroll

    Once you have a Tinkaton set up, you would want to use items to increase its Effort Values. With each item, you will need to use money, so if you want to save a little bit of money, you would want to do some reroll for [Nature], [IV], [Ability] to make it easier.

    ▶Best Breeding Guide | How To Make Strong Pokemon

    Confirm The Ability The Tinkaton Has

    If you capture a Tinkaton in a 5★ raid, it might have the Hidden Ability. Hidden Ability [Pickpocket] is not useful against Raid Battles so you want to use the Ability Patch, if you have enough, and change your ability to a normal one. If you do not have enough patches, you would want to get a Wild Tinkaton.

  3. Use Mint and Change Nature to Adamant
  4. ItemEffect/ Where To Get
    Adamant Mint IconAdamant Mint- Change the Nature to Adamant
    - Nature itself remains the same
    - Purchase at the Chansey Supply Shop for $ 20,000

    You can change the Nature to Adamant using the corresponding Mint for it. If you do not have one, get it from the Chansey Supply Shop in Mesagoza or other areas for $ 20,000 Pokedollars. If the original Nature is Adamant, there is no need to use Mints.

  5. Increase Effort Value

    You need to make sure that you do not faint in a Raid Battle. For this you want to distribute to have MAX HP. Also if your attack power is not strong enough, then you will run out of time, so it is recommended that you strengthen your ATK as well. For the rest you have left, you want to use it for SPD.

    If You Have Money To Spare, Buy Items and Strengthen Quickly

    Health Feather IconHealth Feather ×2
    ATKProtein IconProtein × 25
    Muscle Feather IconMuscle Feather ×2
    SPDCarbos IconCarbos ×1 or
    Swift Feather IconSwift Feather ×6

    If you have money to spare, you can buy a lot of items to increase your EV in a very fast speed. But each one does cost $ 10000 and for each stats you need 26, and so in total you would need about 50 ($ 500000).

    If You Want To Save Money, Battle Wild Pokemon

    By capturing or defeating Wild Pokemon, you can earn 1 to 3 Effort Value for each of them. If you give a Pokemon a Power Item, you can increase the amount of Effort Value it gets by 8. Power Items costs only $ 10,000, so they are recommended for those who want to save money.

  2. ItemEffect / Explanation
    Sitrus Berry iconSitrus BerryWhen a Pokemon holds it, it can eat it to restore its own HP when it is less than half and restore 1/4.

    Before participating in a Raid, do NOT forget to give TInkaton an item to hold. The items listed above is highly recommended.

  3. First turn use Reflect or Light Screen
  4. Reflect

    If you have learned Reflect or Light Screen, you would want to use these on the 1st turn. It will decrease the amount of damage you get, and it will allow you to use Swords Dance easier.

  5. For turns 2~4 use Swords Dance
  6. From the 2nd turn and on you want to increase your ATK so use Swords Dance. In about 3 usages of Swords Dance, you will be able to have your ATK to its Max.

    Your Opponent Might Try To Decrease Your Moves

    Sometimes Pokemon in Raids will try to reset your current stats. If this happens, use Swords Dance again. If you start to struggle and you are losing HP, start [Cheering] and prioritize the healing process.

  7. Once you use Sword Dance 3 times, use Gigaton Hammer
  8. Gigaton Hammer

    Once you have used Sword Dance 3 times, you are now ready to use Gigaton Hammer. If it is super effective for some Pokemon, you will be able to defeat it in 1 blow.
