Pokemon Go players can get Enamorus after defeating it on Elite Raids on February 14, 2024, from 12 PM to 1 PM, 1 PM to 2 PM, 5 PM to 6 PM, and 6 PM to 7 PM (local time).

Tackling any Elite Raid with at least 15 high-level trainers is recommended. Also, they are local-only Raids, so keep that in mind.

Enamorus weaknesses in Pokemon Go

In Pokemon Go, Enamorus is a Fairy/Flying-type Pokemon, so it’s considerably weak to Electric, Ice, Poison, Rock, and Steel-type attacks. Consider bringing Pokemon with that type and attacks for maximum damage output.

Enamorus resists Bug, Dragon, Fighting, Ground, Dark, and Grass-type moves, so avoid building your team with those types to prevent losing the advantage.
