  2. Use Metal Sound to lower the Decidueye's Sp. defense
  3. Use "Go all out!" to increase damage
  4. Use Electro Drift, you can defeat it with one shot
  1. Double the power of electric moves with Charge
  2. Let's use the Charge on the first move to double the power of the electric moves. Decidueye will cancel your stats increase, but the Charge state will continue.

  3. Use Metal Sound to lower the Decidueye's Sp. defense
  4. きんぞくおん

    Use Metal Sound to lower the Decidueye's Sp. defense by two ranks. Also, due to the effect of the Throat Spray, hitting the opponent with Metal Sound will also increase Miraidon's Sp. attack by one rank.

    Metal Sound Is Allowed To Make One Miss

    The Metal Sound has an accuracy of 85 and may not hit the Decidueye. Since the Electric Terrain lasts for 5 turns, it does not matter if you miss the Metal Sound only once. If you miss it twice, it is recommended to start over from the beginning.

  5. Use "Go all out!" to increase damage
  6. After hitting the opponent with the Metal Sound, use cheer "Go all out!" to increase your own damage. Unlike Metal Sound, it is stable as it does not miss.

  7. Use Electro Drift, you can defeat it with one shot
  8. Electro Drift

    When everything is ready, use Electro Drift to beat it with one shot. Just to be sure, make sure the Decidueye has not setting a screen and that the Electric Terrain is still in place.

Recommended Moveset

  1. Electric
  2. Poison
  3. Water

Decidueye uses Sword Dance only once when it setting a screen. Spread EVs to HP and defense, as builds that spread EVs to HP and Sp attack often get knocked down because you can't recover HP in time.

Turn 1, after Decidueye resets your stats, use Electric Terrain and activate the effect of Electric Seed to make it more stable.

▶︎ Bellibolt Build For Decidueye Tera Raid
How To Use In Solo or Random Multi-Play
  1. Choose an Attack Move on the first move
  2. Use Electric Terrain after Stats increases are canceled
  3. Use Parabolic Charge until Decidueye sets a Screen
  4. Use Acid Spray once after the Stats are reset
  5. Change to Electric Tera Type and use Parabolic Charge repeatedly
  1. Choose an Attack Move on the first move
  2. Choose an Attack Move on the first move

    Since Decidueye will cancel your Stats increases on the first turn, choose an Attack Move so that you can use Terastal as soon as possible.

  3. Use Electric Terrain after Stats increases are canceled
  4. Use Electric Terrain

    After the Stats increases have been canceled, set Electric Terrain and use Electric Seed to raise Defense by one stage. The Stats increases will not be canceled unless you are defeated, which makes it very stable.

  5. Use Parabolic Charge until Decidueye sets a Screen
  6. パラボラチャージ

    Keep your HP high with Parabolic Charge until Decidueye sets a screen. There is no need to use Acid Spray or Chilling Water, as Decidueye will cancel the Stats decreases on itself when it sets the screen.

  7. Use Acid Spray once after the Stats are reset
  8. アシッドボムを1回使用

    When the opponent sets a screen, it is time to use Acid Spray. Since this Bellibolt's Sp. Attack is not enhanced with EVs, you need to lower its Sp. Defense or you may not be able to deal enough damage and run out of time.

  9. Change to Electric Tera Type and use Parabolic Charge repeatedly
  10. use Parabolic Charge repeatedly

    When you're ready, change Bellibolt to Electric Tera Type and use Parabolic Charge repeatedly. It may take a little time, but it is possible to defeat Decidueye stably.

    You May Not Be Able To Recover In Time If Decidueye Makes Critical Hits With Leaf Blade Twice In A Row

    If Decidueye makes Critical hits with Leaf Blade twice in a row after the Swords Dance, you may not be able to recover in time and will lose the battle. It would be better to lower Decidueye's Attack first with the Ability Intimidate by an NPC in Solo Raid or with Chilling Water by a Bellibolt in Random Multi-Play.

How To Fight & Defeat Mighty Decidueye

Mighty Decidueye's Attacks To Watch Out For

It Disables Buffs And Uses Feather Dance On The First Turn

Mighty Decidueye

Decidueye will nullify your ability effects and stat increases on its first move, and will also lower your attack with Feather Dance. Therefore, it is recommended to challenge it with a special type Pokemon.

It Nullifies Debuffs And Uses Sword Dance After Setting A Screen

Mighty Decidueye

Decidueye will cancel the stat decreases on itself when setting a screen, then raise its attack with the Sword Dance. Note that if it stacked the Sword Dance more than once, it becomes much more difficult to complete this Raid.

It May Attack Two Or More Times In A Row With A High Probability After Setting The Screen

Decidueye attacks two or three times in a row with high probability after setting a screen. Therefore, it will be difficult to complete the raid if you thoughtlessly reduce the opponent's HP too much and make it setting a screen.

Challenge With Level 100 Pokemon


7★ Raids are very powerful so it is recommended to have a Pokemon that is Level 100 to participate. Even on the Official it has been posted, [It is very hard to defeat by 1 Trainer]. So be prepared by leveling up your Pokemon.
