Battle Strategy Against Cresselia

Best Pokemon To Use Vs. Cresselia (Gengar)

Gengar - Rating, Stats & Max CP

Gengar is still the best to use against Cresselia in a raid battle. Cresselia is weak to Gengar's Ghost & Dark Type moves but stay cautious as Gengar is also vulnerable to Psychic Type attacks.

Watch Out For Cresselia's Ice & Fairy Type Skills

When Cresselia has Aurora Beam, it's best to swap out your Dragonite, Rayquaza, and Salamence. If Cresselia has Moonblast, keep your Dark Types such as Weavile, Absol, & Tyranitar away from battle.

100% IV Cresselia Has CP 1633

When you defeat Cresselia and encounter it in the bonus capture challenge, if it has a CP of 1633, it has 100% Individual Value (IV).
