TheCrossover Event is now live in Right now, many of the raids happening feature species that appear in the upcoming expansion based on the game that will be released on July 1st. This includes Dragonite in Tier Three raids. With this Raid Guide, you can prepare a team to confront Dragonite and develop your catch strategy.
Top Dragonite Counters
Pokebattler, which identifies all possible Pokemon combinations and moves, lists the top 10 Dragonite counters as such:
- Shadow Mamoswine (Powder Snow, Avalanche)
- Shadow Weavile (Ice Shard, Avalanche)
- Galarian Darmanitan (Ice Fang, Avalanche)
- Shadow Mewtwo (Psycho Cut, Ice Beam)
- Mamoswine (Powder Snow, Avalanche)
- Weavile (Ice Shard, Avalanche)
- Mega Abomasnow (Powder Snow, Weather Ball)
- Glaceon (Frost Breath, Avalanche)
- Shadow Articuno (Frost Breath, Ice Beam)
- Shadow Porygon (Ice-type Hidden Power, Blizzard)
Even the most practiced players should have a lot of power on your counters as long as possible. Below are ten additional non-Shadow and non-Mega counters that can help defeat Dragonite with efficiency.
- Mewtwo (Psycho Cut, Ice Beam)
- Avalugg (Ice Fang, Avalanche)
- Jynx (Frost Breath, Avalanche)
- Vanilluxe (Frost Breath, Blizzard)
- Beartic (Powder Snow, Ice Punch)
- Articuno (Frost Breath, Ice Beam)
- Kyurem (Dragon Breath, Blizzard)
- Porygon-Z (Hidden Power Ice, Blizzard)
- Walrein (Frost Breath, Icicle Spear)
- Mr. Rime (Ice Shard, Ice Punch)
How Many Trainers Are Needed?
You can do it alone! It''s vital to take advantage of Dragonite''s double weakness to Ice-types. If you cannot guarantee the top counters with a maxed-out CP and the best moves, your best bet is to make sure you have two or more players.
Along with Golden Razz Berries, utilizing the Circle Lock Technique to guarantee great or excellent throws is the best way to catch Pokemon. However, because Dragonite is an evolved form, I recommend using Pinap Berries for the first few throws in an attempt to increase the amount of Dratini candy.
Dragonite can be found in its Shiny form; therefore, you must catch and evolve a Shiny Dratini until the final stage.
Gut raiding, liebe fellow trainers!
