Xerneas Raid Guide

Xerneas is a Fairy-type Legendary Pokémon available in 5-star Raids.

It is duo-able for high-level Trainers with teams consisting of top Poison- and Steel-type counters such as Mega Gengar, Metagross, Mega Beedrill, and Dialga. Lower-level Trainers, or Trainers lacking proper counters, should Raid in larger groups (3-20) to take out the Life Pokémon.
