Walking Wake is a Water/Dragon-type combination, so Electric-type Pokémon are the strongest counters against the Legendary. However, players should generally avoid bringing any Grass-types into the raid event, as the Paradox Pokémon has Flamethrower. Below are the best counters for Walking Wake in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

  • Iron Hands (Ability: Quark Drive/Held Item: Shell Bell)
    • Thunder Punch
    • Drain Punch
    • Belly Drum
    • Electric Terrain
  • Bellibolt (Ability: Electromorphosis/Held Item: Magnet)
    • Electric Terrain
    • Parabolic Charge
    • Thunder
    • Acid Spray
  • Azumarill (Ability: Huge Power/Held Item: Shell Bell)
    • Belly Drum
    • Play Rough
    • Liquidation
    • Helping Hand
  • Miraidon (Ability: Hadron Engine/Held Item: Shell Bell)
    • Electro Drift
    • Parabolic Charge
    • Metal Sound
    • Charge Beam
  • Annihilape (Ability: Defiant/Held Item: Shell Bell)
    • Bulk Up
    • Close Combat
    • Screech
    • Rage Fist

With Iron Hands, the main strategy is to use Belly Drum to increase your Special Attack stat for Thunder Punch. With Shell Bell equipped, Drain Punch will act as your healing move. Players who use Miraidon can spam Electro Drift to do devastating damage. Parabolic Charge will heal you if needed, and Metal Sound will lower Walking Wake's Defenses. Lastly, Azumarill can basically knock the Paradox Pokemon out in two moves after Belly Drum and Play Rough are used together.

Because Walking Wake is a 5-Star Raid, the Legendary ancient form is relatively easy to defeat. For instance, although Miraidon has a Dragon-type weakness to Paradox Suicine, its powerful Electric-type counters are enough to quickly take the Legendary down. Players can even use Grass-types such as Meowscarada without having too much trouble. However, the overall best counters are going to be pure Electric-type Pokémon.
