Best Counter Pokemon

Ceruledge That Can Nullify Fire

Tera Type Nature Ability Item
SteelFireAdamantFlash FireCovert Cloak
Base Stats75125806010085

Ceruledge is one of the recommended Pokemon because it has a recovery move and can nullify Delphox's fire moves with its ability. Since the opponent frequently uses Psychic, which Ceruledge is not good at, have Ceruledge hold Covert Cloak, which can prevent special defence down.

Steel Or Fire is Recommended For Tera Type

For Tera Type, we recommend Steel, which can reduce all Delphox attack moves to less than half, including the effects of Flash Fire.

However, since Steel tera type have the risk of taking heavy damage from the opponent's fire moves at the same time Ceruledge ability are disabled, Fire tera type, which can increase the power of Bitter Blade, are also an option.

Recommended Moves

  1. Fire
  2. Normal
  3. Poison
  4. Steel

After raising your own attack power with Sword Dance, attack while recovering with Bitter Blade. Ceruledge can also learn Iron Head, which can attack the opponent's weak point, but it is more stable to attack while recovering with Bitter Blade.

Also, let Ceruledge learn Clear Smog to reset the opponent's special attack up that the opponent will use in the middle of the battle.

Recommended Moveset

  4. Fire

Armarouge, which has excellent resistance including ability, is another recommended Pokemon. Compared to Ceruledge, it has the advantage of being able to boost the firepower of all allies with Acid Spray. However, note that since it relies on Shell Bell for recovery resources, it may be overwhelmed by Magic Room, which the opponent uses in the middle battle.

The Stored Power build Armarouge may not have enough firepower, so if you participate in a random multi-play team, you might run out of time after your ability is reset.

Base Stats919010613010677

Recommended Moveset

  2. Steel

Heatran can take the damage from all the Delphox's attacks at less than half. First, use "Metal Sound" to lower the opponent's Sp. Defense, and then use "Flash Cannon" repeatedly.

Since "Metal Sound" is ineffective to an opponent with a barrier, try to gain the number of times "Flash Cannon" to secure firepower with Metronome's effects.

Delphox's speed is 268 including nature correction. Distribute EV to Gholdengo's speed to make it faster than Delphox. Use Make It Rain after confirming that Perrserker's Fake Tears has hit the opponent.

Even if you maximize the Perrserker's speed, it will not outperform the Delphox, so give the Perrserker' an Occa Berry to avoid being knocked down by the opponent's Fire Blast.

Tips On When Participating Unrivaled Raids

Challenge With Level 100 Pokemon

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.

▶How To Level Up Fast - EXP Farming

[Caution] Most Past Unrivaled Bosses Are Not Useful

All the Pokemon that has been caught in the 7 star raids are all starting Level 100, but they do not have any useful skills to participate in an Unrivaled Raid. Especially in Multi-Player, it is disliked so if you are planning to use it, then use in Solo battles.

Use The Appropriate Raid Pokemon

Compared to 5★-6 raids, you can not win by just consecutively attacking with Koraidon's "Collision Course" and Miraidon's "Electro Drift". Make sure you research the opponent's abilities and choose a Pokemon that is your advantage.

7★ Raid Bosses Are About 25 Times Normal HP

This guide is created as an assumption it can be defeated with a One Shot. This article is not made with throughtout precise measurements.

7★ Raid Bosses HP is 25 times a regular Pokemon raid. For example, if the Pokemon that is in the Raid Boss has a regular HP of 300, then in a 7 star raid, it is estimated to have about 7,500 HP. Due to this you will not be able to defeat it with a Pokemon with low attack power and run out of time.

Other Powers Are The Same

Other than HP (ATK/DEF/SP ATK/SP DEF/SPD), the other status does not range differently. You especially want to learn the SPD, because you will have an advantage if you choose a move that has a faster reaction than your opponent.

Base Stats756972114100104
▶︎Delphox - Type, Moveset, & Stats

Unrivaled Delphox Moveset

  1. Psychic

The Unrivaled Delphox use the type-matching Fire Blast and Psychic as well as the fairy move Dazzling Gleam. Also, since Will-O-Wisp burns your Pokemon, a special attacker or a physical attacker that can nullify the burn is recommended.

It Uses Dazzling Gleam On Its First Move

The Unrivaled Delphox uses Dazzling Gleam right at the start of the raid. Be careful not to let your opponent take advantage of your weakness and knock you down.

It Uses Magic Rooms And Nasty Plot In The Middle Of The Battle

As the remaining time decreases, it will use Magic Room and Nasty Plot. If it uses Magic Room, you will lose the effect of the held items for 5 turns; be careful if you rely on Shell Bell or other items to recover HP, you will have a hard time after the middle of the battle.

Hidden Ability "Magician"

  1. The Pokemon steals the held item of a Pokemon it hits with a move.

It has the Hidden Ability "Magician", like those of past 7-Star raid Pokemon.

This Ability Is Not Activated In Tera Raid Battle

We tested this by transforming Ditto, and found that the opponent's ability Magician was not activated and our held item was not taken away. Therefore, it is safe to assume that the Unrivaled Delphox is practically without any abilities.
