Battle Strategy Against Groudon

Best Pokemon To Use Vs. Groudon (Kyogre)

Groudon Raid Battle Guide Strategy Tips
Check Out Kyogre's Stats & Moves Here!

Kyogre is the top Pokemon to pit against Groudon. Groudon is weak to Water Type moves and Kyogre can easily take his HP down with Water attacks.

Kyogre Is Weak To Groudon's Solar Beam

It's possible that the Groudon you'll face will have the move Solar Beam. Take caution as Kyogre is weak against Solar Beam and will suffer huge amounts of damage, especially when Groudon is weather-boosted!

Pokemon To Combat Groudon's Solar Beam

If the Groudon you're facing has the move Solar Beam, bring other Pokemon that can combat or survive against that move. Be cautious, though, as some Pokemon can be weak against Groudon's Fire Blast

Recommended Pokemon To Use Against Solar Beam
