Battle Strategy Against Kyogre

Use Raikou Or Electivire To Combat Kyogre

Electivire and Raikou are both Electric Types and don't have any weaknesses when attacked by Kyogre. They have high attack power and DPS so they're very effective against Kyogre.

Can Be Hard To Catch & Power Up

Raikou is a legendary Pokemon that can only be captured via raids or research breakthroughs. Electivire is also difficult to power up as players may lack the Candy for it.

Use Exeggutor When Weather Is Sunny

Kyogre Raid Battle Guide: Strategy & Tips

Exeggutor gets a power boost when the weather is sunny! Kyogre is also weak to Grass Types so if you have a powered up Exeggutor in your party, you'll deal a lot of damage to Kyogre.

Watch Out For Kyogre's Petal Blizzard

If the Kyogre you're facing has the move Petal Blizzard, make sure to swap out your Exeggutor as it is weak against Ice Type attacks.

Kyogre Is Powered Up When It's Raining

Kyogre will be more powerful when it's raining. It'll be harder to bring down and its CP will be higher. So be sure to keep an eye out on the weather when fighting Kyogre.
