Battle Strategy Against Shiftry

Best Pokemon To Use Vs. Shiftry (Scizor)

Shiftry Raid Battle Guide Strategy Tips
Check Out Scizor's Stats & Moves Here!

Scizor is one of the best Pokemon to counter Shiftry's attacks. Shiftry has double the weakness to Bug Type moves due to it being a Grass & Dark Type.

Have Fire & Fighting Pokemon In Your Roster

It's best to bring Bug Type Pokemon like Scizor and Pinsir in your battle but you can also fight with Fire or Fighting Pokemon! Use Moltres or a Breloom equipped with Fighting attacks.

Take Caution Against Flying Move Hurricane

Shiftry can learn the Flying Type move Hurricane. This is extremely effective against Bug Types such as Pinsir but can be withstood by Scizor.

CP To Get 100% IV Shiftry

A 100% IV Shiftry Has 1333 CP

When the Shiftry that appears in the bonus capture challenge after the raid has a CP of 1666, it has 100% IV or Individual Value.

Sunny & Fog Weather Boosts 100% IV Shiftry To CP 1666

CP On Normal Weather Weather Weather Boosted CP

When the weather is sunny or has fog, Shiftry will have a higher PL (Pokemon Level) at 25. This will make a 100% IV Shiftry's CP to 1666.

Individual Value (IV) Per CP Chart

You can also check Shiftry's Individual Value (IV) beyond it being 100% value. You just need to check its CP once it appears after defeating it in the raid.
