Fake Tears

Preliminary Version recommended for players who are looking for a fixed one shot. Chesnaught's defense is very strong and it will use "Iron Defense" so instead of using 4 Perrserkers, it is better to use 3 Support type Perrserkers + 1 Steel Special Attacker.

In this team, the 3 Perrserkers will use "Fake Tears" and then Gholdengo can attack, so it will be fairly easy to look for other players in the Raid Search Board.

Recommended Moveset

  1. Fighting

Mighty Chesnaught is a Rock type, so any Pokemon that has learned Drain Punch will be able to take the fight into an endurance battle. Among them, Annihilape is the Pokemon that should be used preferentially, as it is likely to be less likely to receive an effective hit from Chesnaught (probably only Zen Headbutt can take heavy damage from it).

  3. Grass

Mighty Chesnaught's moves are all around 100 and above. They are a variety so making them all half is going to be very hard.

Use "Iron Defense" To Increase DEF


Right at the start of the battle, Chesnaught will use "Iron Defense". The DEF will increase 2 levels so if you are planning a Physical Attacker then be careful.

In Middle Stages, Stack "Bulk Up"


In the middle stages of the battle, Chesnaught will use "Bulk Up". This will increase the ATK so from here the damage inflicted will increase.

Lastly, It Will Use "Curse"

  1. Ghost

In the last stages, Chesnaught will stack Curse. This will increase ATK and DEF by 1 level, but decrease SPD by 1. This will make it harder to defeat so decrease its HP and hurry to defeat it.

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.

For 2 players, this Appletun and Lurantis work amazingly well together. Apple Acid cuts Chesnaught's sp. def so Lurantis's self-boosting Leaf Storm can do massive damage. They consistently win in about 1/4 of the timer bar. Btw, Leaf Storm NEEDS PP Ups. 5 PP just isn't enough.
