Mega Houndoom Raid Guide

Mega Houndoom is a dual Dark- and Fire-type Pokémon available in Mega Raids.

In favorable conditions, a 2-person Raid is possible for Trainers with teams consisting of high-level Fighting-, Ground-, Rock-, and Water-type counters such as Lucario, Conkeldurr, Rampardos, & Kyogre. Lower level Trainers or Trainers lacking the proper counters for a 2-person attempt should raid in larger parties (3-20).

Note: Ideally, you want to have more people participate in the raid to complete it faster in order to gain the maximum amount of Mega Energy.

Mega Fire Dog will be yet another in the line of super-powered Pokémon to hit the scene since Megas were introduced.
