  2. MapDetailed Location
    Detailed Location

    Slowbros and Slowpokes are commonly found at Casseroya Lake. Their spawn rate is great and you are able to save your EXP candy so this place is recommended.

    Choose Psychic Tera Type

    Greninja's Raid recommended Slowbro will be using Stored Power to attack, so capture a Slowbro with Tera Type Psychic. Water Tera Type will not give it enough power so Psychic is highly recommended.

    The Ability Can Be Anything

    Slowbros has 3 types of Abilities, but they are not used in the Greninja's Raid so anything can be used.

  3. Change Nature to Modest with Mints
  4. ItemEffect

    ・Nature itself remains the same.
    Purchased at Chansey Supply for 20,000 Poke Dollars

    With Modest Mint, you can turn it into Modest with some Nature correction. If you don't have it, go to Chansey Supply in Mesagoza or other places and buy one for 20,000 Poke Dollars. However, there is no need to use Mints if the original Nature is Modest

  5. Change Effort Value

    Mighty Greninja will only use Physical moves so you will want to strengthen your DEF to the max. To gain more damage, you also want to strengthen your SP. ATK. You can strengthen your HP and DEF so you do not faint, but it will take more time to defeat the Greninja.

    Use Vitamins To Increase Effort Value

    The fastest way is to use the above Vitamins to change its value if you can afford it. Although a total of about 500,000 Poke Dollars is required, it can be changed out in a more time-efficient manner.

    Where To Get Vitamins & Feathers?

    By capturing or destroying wild Pokemon, you can earn 1-3 Effort Value. If a Power Item is given, it is also possible to increase the Effort Value gained by 8. Power Item costs only 10,000 Poke Dollars each and is recommended for those who want to save money.

  7. Raise Slowbro To Lv 100
  8. Fastest Way Is To Use Exp Candy

    he fastest way to level up is with candy alone.
    Exp. Candy LEXP Value: 10,000
    Exp. Candy XLEXP Value: 30,000

    If you clear the 5 or 6 star Tera Raid, you can get Exp. Candy L or Exp Candy XL. Leveling up is the most efficient when training a single Pokemon.

    Get Chansey If You Have Few Candy

    If you do not have enough candies to raise a Pokemon to Lv 100, it is recommended to hunt for Chansey at North Province Area Three until you get sufficient candies.

How To Use Slowbro In Raids

Procedure Guideline
  1. Use Iron Defense to the MAX
  2. Use Nasty Plot to the MAX
  3. Cheer Go all out!
  4. If HP is low, use Slack Off to heal
  5. Attack with Stored Power
  1. Use Iron Defense to the MAX
  2. Iron Defense

    First you want to use Iron Defense to its Max. Not only will it strengthen Stored Power, but also gain Defense and makes harder to faint.

  3. Use Nasty Plot to the MAX
  4. Nasty Plot

    Once you finish with Iron Defense, now use Nasty Plot to its Max. If it does not get reset, you should be at its max in 6 turns.

  5. Cheer Go All Out!
  6. Before you use Stored Power, you will want to cheer with "Go All Out!".

  7. If HP is low, use Slack Off to heal
  8. While you are using Iron Defense and Nasty Plot and you are hit with damage, and your HP is low, you will want to heal up with Slack Off. If you are hit critically and faint, there is a very low chance of completing the raid and you will not be able to capture Greninja.

  9. Attack with Stored Power
  10. Stored Power

    Once you finish with Iron Defense and Nasty Plot, you will attack with Stored Power. If you have done it correctly, you can work with the NPCs and defeat the Greninja.

Good build. Since Greninja always nullifies buffs at a fixed time it's best to wait before setting up. I also agree with other user's suggestion of terrain/leftovers, you'll need less turns to attack, which means less chance of getting crit or missing since Gren's evade is quite high by that point.

How on earth is this guide supposed to work when half way thru Cinderace nullifies all your buffs rendering your attack power back to square one?

ez soloing.. life orb recommended.

Anonymous 4

Had no problem soloing it with this guide, though I made some slight adjustments. Replaced Slack off with psychic terrain and used leftovers as a held item.
