Recommended Moves For Mighty Cinderace Raid

  1. Fire
  2. Normal
  3. Fighting
  4. Psychic

When using Ceruledge in the Cinderace Tera Raid Event, make sure to use Bulk Up to increase durability in battle and Psycho Cut to target the weak spots of your opponent. The Tera Type should be set to Ghost to nullify the damage effects from Cinderace's Fighting type moves.

Recommended Moves for Normal Tera Raids

  1. Fire
  2. Normal
  3. Dark
  4. Ghost

Ceruledge is a Physical Attacker that can use its Flash Fire ability to disable Fire-type moves. Its signature move, Bitter Blade, is the most powerful HP recovering move, making it easy to fight while recovering HP.

Useful In Fire And Ghost Type Raids


Since Ceruledge's main firepower is its Fire and Ghost type moves, it can play an active role in the above types of Raid that can exploit weaknesses with these moves. In addition, if it is used against a Pokemon that is originally a Fire type, you can use it because it can use its ability Flash Fire to disable Fire moves.

Likely To Be Useful For 7★ Cinderace Raid

The Mighty Cinderace

Ceruledge is likely to be useful in the ★7 Cinderace Raid battle for the coming up limited-time event. It can continue to attack while recovering with Bitter Blade while disabling both the opponent's main Fire and Fighting moves.

    Ceruledge is limited to Violet and only appears in Raids with 5 to 6 stars, so if you don't have it, catch a pre-evolved Charcadet. Charcadets appear over a wide area, but the probability of their appearance is low, so it is recommended to activate Encounter Power's Fire when they do not appear easily.

    When training a Ceruledge caught in Raid, it is necessary to change its Ability to Flash Fire when its Ability is Weak Armor. However, it is a waste to use it to revert from Hidden Ability to normal Ability, so it is recommended to have a spare Charcadet with Flash Fire unless you have extra Ability Patches at hand.
