After Reshiram and Kyurem, the legendary Thessaly yield the baton to the other great component of Generation V. We review the best opponents.
Pokémon GO faces its fourth anniversary with a multitude of events and activities this July. The Niantic phenomenon, which will unveil this July 7 what Team GO Rocket is up to this time, also welcomes Kyurem in the raids from Tuesday night. The last member of the main trio of legendary from the region of Thessaly (Generation V) is already here, so we are going to tell you everything we know about him as well as the best opponents to defeat him in the five-star raids.
When will Kyurem be on the raids?
Kyurem arrives at the Pokémon GO Five-Star Raids this Tuesday, July 7, 2020 at 10:00 PM CEST. The Frontier Pokémon will have its own raid time with Kyurem every Wednesday at 18:00 local time while on raids. Dates to highlight:
- Wednesday, July 8, 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time
- Wednesday, July 15, 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time
- Wednesday, July 22, 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time
What do we know about Kyurem in Pokémon GO
It is a very powerful creature, this is the first thing that we must make clear, one of those that we recommend trying to defeat with at least five Trainers (43,478 PC). According to the datamining that we have been able to access, Kyurem arrives at Pokémon GO with 246 ATK, 170 DEF and a resistance of 245. The strategy is clear: very powerful attacks to deal damage quickly. He is not the most complicated raid boss that we are going to find. At level 40 we will see it with 3575 PCs in its 100% Full IVs form, so remember that figure. Of course, the base catch ratio is only 2%.
Otherwise, his quick attacks are Dragon Breath and Steel Wing. Nothing to fear around here. The problem will come with its main movements, with Dragon Claw and Ice Wind as less powerful options, but with Blizzard or Comet Draco if we are very unlucky. The latter has a base damage of 150 with 50 DPS. We have to be careful.
Best opponents to defeat Kyurem
Being a Dragon and Ice type creature, it is not very difficult to devise a strategy: it has many vulnerabilities. That itself is not worth any Pokémon to stand up to Kyurem. These are our chosen as the best opponents for the incursion of this legendary species.
- Palkia with Dragon Tail and Draco Comet
- Rayquaza with Dragon Tail and Anger
- Salamence with Dragon Tail and Draco / Angry Kite
- Metagross with Bullet Fist and Meteor Fist
- Lucario with Counterattack and Aural Sphere
- Haxorus with Dragon Tail and Dragon Claw
- Conkeldurr with Counterattack and Dynamic Fist
