  • Iron Hands – One of the best Pokemon for Raids, even solo. Check out our Best Iron Hands build guide for more info.
  • Koraidon – Your Fighting/Dragon motorbike can actually do quite well in Raids with Orichalcum Pulse and Protosynthesis.
  • Miraiodon – Same as Koraidon, except it’s Electric/Dragon and has a high Sp. Atk instead of the regular Attack stat.
  • Azumarill – Another incredible Pokemon for almost all Raids as a Fairy/Water type. Consult our Best Azumarill build guide to see how to prepare it properly.
  • Maushold – Armed with the Population Bomb, this Pokemon is one of the most overpowered creatures in the game.
  • Sylveon – As a Fairy type, and given the right “gear” and moveset, this Eevee evolution can do surprisingly well in Raids.
  • Perrserker – This Steel Pokemon can do quite a lot of damage, especially with its Steel Spirit Hidden Ability. You get the Pokemon by evolving the Galarian Meowth.
  • Ceruledge – While it is exclusive to Pokemon Violet and you have to farm Sinistea to obtain the Malicious Armor to earn this Pokemon, it’s Fire/Ghost dual type is very versatile.
  • Garchomp – The Dragon/Ground Pokemon is always an excellent choice for Raids, and Scarlet and Violet is no different.
