Bring a Diverse Team of Types
Raihan doesn't use a particular type so it's best to have different types of Pokemon with you in this fight. Even better if they have moves that work together.
Choose Pokemon that Synergizes Together
Beating Raihan requires a more complicated strategy due to being a double battle. You'll need Pokemon that can buff each other and do moves that can hit multiple enemies at a time.

Prioritize Pokemon with Sandstorm Move
Focus all of your aggro on Gigalith and Sandaconda since they'll keep calling the Sandstorm until they're gone from the battle. This will remove the Damage over Time and their buffs.
Dynamax Only Against Duraludon
Duraludon has both power and defense and it's better to go against it with your own Dynamax. Choose a Pokemon with any of its weaknesses to quickly take it out.
