Houndoom Raid Guide

Houndoom is a dual Dark- and Fire-type Pokémon once available in 4-star Raids, now in 3-star Raids. It is soloable for Trainers with teams consisting of top counters such as Rampardos, Kyogre, Machamp, and Kingler. For lower-level Trainers, or Trainers lacking the proper counters, we recommend Raiding in larger groups (2-20).

HOUNDOOM COUNTERS

Because every Raid sim is just a little bit different, we have assembled an aggregate of three of the top Raid sims available. Pokebattler, GoHub, and GamePress all offer quality Raid sims with slight differences once you get past the top-tier counters.

HOUNDOOM YOUTUBER CONTENT

Here’s a collection of YouTuber content focused on Devil Dog Raids. In these videos, you will find counters, short-man experiences, and tips & tricks to help you in your battles against the Dark Pokémon.

SIT, UBU, SIT! GOOD DOG!

This is a Raid most Trainers will probably pass on. While Houndoom is a decent Dark-type, there are others that are better, and just as easily obtained (Hello, Tyranitar). 

The challenge of raiding it will be enticing to a short-manning crew, since it is now a decent T3 solo. But, as always, everyone has their reason. So, if the Devil Dog is your thing, by all means, raid it, bring that dog to heel!
