Procedure Guideline
  1. Capture Lurantis or the pre-evolved Fomantis
  2. Change Nature to Modest with Mints
  3. Change Effort Value
  4. Raise Lurantis to Lv 100
  5. Best Individual Value with Bottle Cap

  2. MapDetailed Location

    Capture either Lurantis or the pre-evolved Fomantis in the wild. If they are born in the wild then the Tera Type will be Grass so it is recommended to capture it.

    If You Want To Save Your Ability Patch Then Breed From Hidden Ability

    Lurantis for Raid's Hidden Ability is "Contrary". If they are born in the wild, then you will need an Ability Patch. If you want to save on your Ability Patches then it is recommended to breed Lurantis that has Hidden Ability that has been caught in raids.

  3. Change Nature to Modest with Mints
  4. ItemEffect/How to Get
    Modest Mint IconModest MintIf you use it, it will increase SP ATK easier, and harder for ATK to increase (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

    The Unrivaled Pikachu's main moves are Thunder and Surf so to decrease the amount of damage, you will want to add 252 to SP DEF. To increase the power of Giga Drain so you can increase the healing number, add 252 to SP ATK.

    If You Have Money Use Vitamins To Increase Effort Value

    HPHealth FeatherHealth Feather ×6
    SP ATKCalcium IconCalcium ×26
    SP DEFZinc IconZinc ×26

    The fastest way is to use the above Vitamins to change its value if you can afford it. But since 1 costs 10,000 Pokedollars and you need 26 pieces for each stats, that is a total of 500,000 Poke Dollars is required.

    If You Want to Save Money, Battle To Gain Stats

    Power Item (Increase specific EV gain by +8)
    Power WeightPower WeightPower LensPower LensPower BandPower Band

    By capturing or defeating 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.

How To Use Lurantis In Raids

How To Defeat Unrivaled Pikachu Raid

Procedure Guideline
  1. Use Sunny Day on 1st Turn
  2. Stack SP ATK with Leaf Storm
  3. When HP decreases then use Synthesis
  4. Activate Grass Tera and consecutively use Giga Drain
  1. Use Sunny Day on 1st Turn
  2. Lurantis

    The Unrivaled Pikachu will use Rain Dance in the beginning of the battle. If it keeps raining then it will increase the power of the opponent's Surf, and makes Thunder accuracy 100, so change the weather into Sunny with Sunny Day.

  3. Stack SP ATK with Leaf Storm
  4. ラランテス

    With Lurantis's ability Contrary, it will reverse Leaf Storm's SP ATK decrease. While stacking SP ATK with Leaf Storm, you will want to charge your Terastal.

  5. When HP Decreases Then Heal With Synthesis
  6. ラランテス

    Leaf Storm can not heal your HP so use Synthesis often to heal. If the weather is Sunny, then the Synthesis healing amount increases 2/3 of the maximum HP.

  7. Activate Grass Tera and consecutively use Giga Drain
  8. ラランテス

    Once your Terastal is charged then you will want to activate it and endure with Giga Drain. But if your HP is low and you terastalize then you will faint right away so make sure you have enough HP before you terastalize.
