Articuno Raid Boss

Articuno is a raid boss encountered in a legendary raid (legendary egg). His raid boss combat power (CP) is 37603 and his maximum capture CP after you defeat it in a raid is 1656 (at perfect 100% IV). Articuno is a legendary Pokemon and currently one of the hardest raid bosses available in Pokemon Go; he is not soloable and current indications show it can take 9+ well-equipped trainers to defeat Articuno. It will take a team of high CP Pokemon that are super-effective against him; namely rock-types such as Omastar, electric-types such as Jolteon and fire-types such as Flareon.

The below is a full rundown on this raid boss with all the information needed to successfully defeat Articuno in battle.

Articuno Raid Boss AttackersOmastar, Jolteon and Flareon would be good choices to face Articuno

Omastar with rock-type moves and his resistance to ice-type moves will deal good damage to Articuno. Electric-types such as Jolteon and fire-types such as Flareon can also deal good damage to Articuno’s ice and flying typing. Aside from these options, you want Pokemon who will deal as much damage as possible (TyranitarDragonite, Gyarados etc). Remember to dodge as much as possible, especially the chargemove.
