Solo'ed raids


I’m part of a Pokédraft in my local area. 6 of us pick 12 mons each. The “draft” consists of us picking mons in sequential order & once someone picks it, nobody else can use it until a redraw is done (normally when the T5 raid boss rotates).
Using the only one team of 6 from the 12 you’ve picked we have to solo T3 raid bosses (you can use any 6 of the 12 you picked but cannot use more than one of your 12 picks, i.e. if you pick Groudon you can only use one Groudon in the raid & no reviving mid battle - if all 6 faint, you lose).
Can be quite challenging when you can’t use just maxed out legendary counters with STAB.


Why last 2 is girl

#23, was it easy to solo Alolan Raichu?


Depends on which team I had at the time. We recently did a redraft so I’d solo’d Some previously where it went down under 5 seconds.
Also depends on if your team is weather boosted or the Raid boss is and of course if your mon has the right move set (clearly this is not me - this is my gf’s account when she was in the draft).

And I wouldn’t say it was “easy”. I normally have to throw in some well timed dodges & calculate which of the raid boss’s charge moves I have to take in order to charge my move up at the right time to land another hit to them.


When I was very low level and couldn’t understand the game, I tried to solo Regice at like level 18, and stupid me didn’t know it was impossible, even though my crappy team was quite decent and managed to get it down to 75-80% HP left.


It’s his girl friend (and my best friend)


Wait so you and that girl are girlfriends too 🥳 destroy @Pokemon


No , we are best friends ionamonti is 's girlfriend.


I soloed Crawdaunt. It wasn’t difficult.


@Branebs What Pokémon do you use? What moveset do they have and what level are they?


Solo both weather boosted Solrock and Lunatone with 2 level 30+ MM Metagross and no dodging. After defeating Solrock, the second MM Metagross has more HP left than the one against Lunatone because Solrock carries Solar Beam and Lunatone has Rock Slide, Rock Slide fires off more frequently than Solar Beam


The last solo raids I did where mudkips evolve form and 2 sandslash

Got crawdaunt and solrock today


@Branebs, thank you for taking your time to write them in detail, I’m almost positive that you used your first 3 mons to solo Crawdaunt


You’re right!


I soloed Crawdaunt the other day with 3 level 30+ Counter/Dynamic Punch Machamp, the 3rd one has more than half of hp left.
