Lugia is a raid boss encountered in a legendary raid (legendary egg). His raid boss combat power (CP) is 42753 and his maximum capture CP after you defeat it in a raid is 2056 (at perfect 100% IV). Lugia is a legendary Pokemon and currently the hardest raid boss available in Pokemon Go; he is not soloable and current indications show it can take 9+ well-equipped trainers to defeat Lugia. It will take a team of high CP Pokemon that are super-effective against him; namely dark-types such as Tyranitar and Houndoom.

Tyranitar and Houndoom as fighting-type and Golem with rock-type moves will deal good damage to Lugia. Aside from these options, you want Pokemon who will deal as much damage as possible (Dragonite, Gyarados etc). Remember to dodge as much as possible, especially the chargemove.
