Pinsir Raid Guide

Pinsir is a Bug-type Pokémon available in 3-star and 4-star Raids.

In 3-star Raids it is solo-able and in 4-star Raids it is duo-able for high-level Trainers with teams consisting of top Fire-, Flying- and Rock-type counters such as Chandelure, Darmanitan, Rampardos, and Moltres. Lower-level Trainers or Trainers lacking proper counters should Raid in larger groups (2-20) to take out the Stag Beetle Pokémon.

PINSIR YOUTUBER CONTENT

Here’s a collection of YouTuber content focused on Pinchy Raids.

In these videos, you will find counters, short-man experiences, and tips & tricks to help you in your battles against the Stag Beetle Pokémon.

IN A PINCH

What can we say about this pinching bug? Is it good in PvE? It can be, but only if you don’t have one of the many other options out there. Is it good in PvP? Again, possibly, but chances are you have something better. It can, however, be shiny in Raids, so if you haven’t yet acquired the shiny, maybe throw it a Raid Pass or two. Keep up to date with the availability of Pinsir in Raids by checking out the Current Raid Boss List on our Homepage.
