The featured Pokémon for the upcoming week's Raid Hour is Cresselia. During the Raid Hour, players worldwide will see an increase in the number of Tier 5 Raids, all of which will host Cresselia: the Lunar Pokémon!
The Raid Hour is hosted every Wednesday from 6pm to 7pm local time. This week's raid will be on Nov. 17, 2021. Being hosted local time means that no matter where you are in the world, the Raid Hour will start at exactly 6pm, and you don't have to adjust for time zones.
- Type: Psychic
- Weak Against: Bug, Dark, Ghost
- Strong Against: Fighting, Psychic
- Since Psychic Pokémon are resistant to their own type, a great technique to use against Cresselia is to use a Pokémon that is dual-type Psychic and one of Cresselia's weaknesses. An example of this would be Hoopa, a Psychic/Ghost Pokémon.
Because Mega Pokémon are rarely used, we opted not to include them in the list of the best counters.
|Pokémon||Quick Attack||Charge Attack|
|Giratina||Shadow Claw||Shadow Ball|
Another important thing to know about Cresselia is that they have very strong resistance to Fighting attacks, so avoid those at all costs.
That's everything you need to know about the upcoming Raid Boss!
