Recommended Moveset (2 Slots Are Flex)

  1. Ground
  2. This sharply raises the user's Attack stat.

It has a high Attack Base Stats and Earthquake is a very powerful attack move, making it a valuable Ground Attacker that can take down Electric Type Pokemon.

Play An Active Role In Electric Type Raids

It can use the high-strength Earthquake as a Same-type attack bonus and Swords Dance to increase its own Attack power. Earthquake is a great move and reaches a large range, but it does not effect your allies.

Best Pokemon For Tera Raid Battles & Raid Tips

Other Than Electric Type, Your Other Pokemon Will Do

It works well for Dragon type, but it is better to take on Dragon types with Fairy type. Keep in mind that Garchomp's role is mainly for Electric-type, which other Pokemon are hard to go up against.

Avoid Ice Type Opponents

Garchomp has a 4x weakness to Ice type, and in a 6-Star Raid, you will faint from a Single Punch blow. Even if it is Electric Tera Type, you should avoid Ice-type Pokemon.

    Appearance place map

    First you need to catch Garchomp or pre-evolved Gible. Ground type is preferred for Tera Types, so you can be breed them or catch them in the wild.

    Hidden Ability Can Be Compromised

    Garchomp's Hidden Ability is called Rough Skin, which reduces the opponent's HP when hit by Physical moves. However, it is not effective in Raid battles, so it is not worth using Ability Patch. If you have other Pokemon you want to raise, you can compromise on its ability with Sand Veil.

    How To Change & Reroll
  3. Change Nature To Adamant With Mints
  4. ItemEffect / How To Obtain

    ・Nature itself does not change.
    Purchased at Chansey Supply for 20,000 Pokedollars

    Adamant Mint can be used to turn Nature into Adamant. If you don't have one, go to Chansey Supply in Mesagoza or other towns and buy one for 20,000 PokedollarsYou do not need to use Mints if the original Nature is Adamant already

  5. Increase Effort Value

    You should assign an Effort Value of at least 252 to Attack and 252 on its HP to increase attacker performance and durability of Garchomp. The extra 4 is assigned to Defense, but you can assign it to Sp. Defense or Speed.

    Use Items To Increase Effort Value

    Health FeatherHealth Feather ×2
    AttackProteinProtein ×25
    Muscle FeatherMuscle Feather ×2
    DefenseResist FeatherResist Feather ×4

    If you can afford it, the fastest way is to purchase the above Vitamin at Chansey Supply. Although a total of about 500,000 Poke Dollars is required, it can be changed out in a more time-efficient manner.

    Soft SandSoft SandWhen held, the power of Ground-type moves is increased by 1.2x.

    Garchomp should be holding Soft Sand to get a stronger Attack power with Ground moves. Choice Band is not useful because it uses only two moves, Swords Dance and Earthquake.

  3. Raise Attack By 6 Levels With Swords Dance
  4. Raise Attack by 6 levels with Swords Dance

    To increase the power for a single shot, use Swords Dance three times first. If your allies are cheering "Go All Out!" then you can increase your Attack power to 6 levels.

  5. Attack With Earthquake After Debuffing
  6. When Garchomp is enhanced, wait for your ally to lower the defense of the opponent. In the meantime, you can use Hang Tough! or Heal Up!. When the defense has been lowered, attack with Earthquake to reduce the enemy's HP in a big blow.

Recommend also using a Shell Bell for some form of healing. Because you're usually only choosing Garchomp when it is super effective, with a Sword Dance boost the healing from Shell Bell really adds up.
