Raikou Raid Guide

Raikou is an Electric-type Legendary Pokémon available in 5-star Raids.

It is trio-able for high-level Trainers with teams consisting of top Ground-type counters such as Groudon, Rhyperior, Excadrill, and Garchomp. Lower-level Trainers, or Trainers lacking proper counters, should Raid in larger groups (4-20) to take out the Thunder Pokémon.

RAIKOU YOUTUBER CONTENT

Here is a collection of YouTuber content focused on Raikou Raids. In these videos, you will find counters, short-man experiences, and tip & tricks to help you in your battles against the Thunder Pokémon.

WELL, THAT WAS ELECTRIFYING

Raikou is a worthwhile raid, as there are few Electric-types, present or future, that can match it as one of the greats. This is certainly no Dex filler, it will have its usefulness in raids and PvP, along with being a possible shiny! Good luck raiding trainers, may the IVs be high and the shinies be plentiful!
