If you take on this Raid in Solo, Slowbro is recommended. Stack Iron Defense and Nasty Plot to the max and hit with Stored Power repeatedly. And use Slack Off to recover HP as needed. Although it depends on Cinderace's actions, it is relatively stable to complete this raid.

The Ability Opportunist allows you to get the defense increased with Cinderace's Bulk Up, and since it cancels out Bulk Up's increased Attack, making it almost non-effective. Use Lumina Crash repeatedly while lowering the opponent's Attack with Feather Dance.
