    └Capture the one with normal Ability

  1. Catch Vaporeon or Pre-Evolution Eevee
  2. VaporeonEevee
    Vaporeon Habitat
    Eevee Habitat

    First, catch Vaporeon or Eevee. You can find Vaporeon at Lv 50 around Casseroya Lake. It is recommended if you want to spare time for leveling up.

    If you want to save money, you would want to Reroll

    After Vaporeon is prepared, increase to the desired IVs using items. Since each item costs money, it is recommended to reroll Nature, Individual Value, and Ability if you want to save a little money.

    Pokemon Training Guide - How To Reroll IV, Ability, & Nature

    Capture It With the Normal Ability

    You need Vaporeon's normal Ability for Raids, and it has only one type of normal Ability, so either "Run Away" or "Adaptability" is fine if you catch the pre-evolution Eevee.

  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. Distribute Effort Values

    In order to increase Vaporeon's offensive performance, you have to distribute 252 to Sp. Attack. And, for durability, increasing its DEF to Max and the rest to HP is recommended.

    Use Items To Increase Effort Value

    The fastest way is to use the above items to increase the values 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.

    Vitamins are available at Chansey Supply, and Feathers can be obtained from the glowing items around Casseroya Lake and Bid in Porto Marinada.

    If You Want To Save Money, Battle Wild Pokemon

    Power Item (Increase each EV by +8)
    Power Belt IconPower BeltPower Lens IconPower Lens

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

How To Use Vaporeon In Raids

How To Use In Greninja Tera Raid

Procedure Guideline
  1. Use Acid Armor on 1st turn
  2. Prepare for the Status Reset on 3rd turn
  3. Stack in the order of Acid Armor 3 times → Calm Mind 6 times
  4. Attack with Stored Power
  1. Use Acid Armor on 1st turn
  2. Use Acid Armor on 1st turn

    Greninja's Gunk Shot will deal damage to about 40% of Vaporeon's HP. First, use Acid Armor to reduce the damage by increasing the defense.

  3. Prepare for the Status Reset on 3rd turn
  4. Prepare for the Status Reset on 3rd turn

    Greninja will remove the increase of your allies' stats when you have acted three times. In order to recover HP before the Stats Increase is removed, select "Wish" on the 2nd turn and "Hang tough!" on the 3rd turn.

  5. Stack in the order of Acid Armor 3 times → Calm Mind 6 times
  6. Stack in the order of Acid Armor 3 times → Calm Mind 6 times

    After your stats are reset, start stacking again in the order of Acid Armor 3 times, then Calm Mind 6 times. When all the stats have been stacked and the stats are as shown in the image above, start to attack.

    Vaporeon will set a barrier during the process

    Vaporeon will set a barrier during the process

    Greninja will put up a barrier even if you don't deal much damage. There is no use in attacking halfway through, so Vaporeon should concentrate on stacking.

    Beware of Night Slash

    Beware of Night Slash

    Night Slash is a move that can easily make a critical hit. If you got a critical hit, the damage will be calculated ignoring the increase in defense, resulting in heavy damage. To be safe, make sure that Vaporeon's HP is not lower than 60%.

  7. Attack with Stored Power
  8. Attack with Stored Power

    When you have finished stacking, use Stored Power to attack. Since your opponent has increased its evasion rate with Double Team and you need to break the barrier, you have to hit it many times to beat him. It is a game of time.
