Best Counter Pokemon For 7 Star Samurott

*The following recommended Pokemon are listed based on an overall evaluation of their stability in completing raids, ease of preparation, and versatility.

[For Solo] Corviknight

Flying Impish AnyShell Bell
Sharp Beak
Base Stats9887105538567
  1. Flying
  2. Normal
  3. Flying
  4. Dark

Corviknight is recommended for solo. While lowering the opponent's defense with Screech, you can exploit Samurott's weakness with flying-type moves. Since Samurott will use Focus Energy to increase its critical hit ratio, Iron Defense is not essential.

Flowchart For A Solo Challenge
  1. Use the Screech twice to lower the Samurott's defense.
    ┗ Try again, if you miss.
  2. Keep attacking with Drill Peck.
  3. Use Roost or cheer "Heal up!" when HP is reduced.

[For Fixed-Multiplayer] Fire Tauros

The ability, "Anger Point" maxmizes your Attack stats when you are hit by a Critical Hit (= the same effect as Belly Drum). After having your allies attack Tauros with a move with 100% Critical hit rate, aim for great damage with a Flare Blitz.

The Tera Type of the Mighty Samurott is bug. It has Hidden Ability "Shell Armor", like those of past 7-star raid Pokemon.

▶︎ Samurott - Type, Moveset, & Stats

Samurott's Weaknesses Are Fire, Flying, And Rock

The Mighty Samurott's Tera Type is bug, so it can exploit its weaknesses with fire, flying, and rock moves. Since Samurott's original type is water, it is likely to use water moves, and a flying type would be better to exploit its weakness.

Mighty Samurott Moveset

  1. Bug
  2. Ground

The moveset of the Mighty Samurott is as shown above. Since it learns only physical moves, it is better to distribute the EVs to the DEF of the counter Pokemon.

Samurott Uses "Focus Energy" On The First Move

It Uses Focus Energy On The First Move

Mighty Samurott’s first move is Energy Focus, which increases the critical hit rate of its moves, making Aqua Cutter and Night Slash especially dangerous. Note that the critical hits are able to ignore defense buffs and deal damage, so there is not much advantage to using moves that raise defense.

When Samurott's HP Decreases, It Will Use Bulldoze And Sword Dance

When It
  1. Ground

Mighty Samurott uses Bulldoze when its HP decreases and Sword Dance when its HP drops below half. The Sword Dance is particularly dangerous, and you may take heavy damage when it uses combined with the increased critical hit rate.

Be careful, as you will be taken down with a single blow unless you use Pokemon with high defense base stats.

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.
