Mega Tyranitar in Pokemon Go Raids

Mega Tyranitar is headlining Pokemon Go Raids, and players are sharing their strategies to beat it with ease.

Pokemon Go boasts species from all nine generations, but to get the most powerful Pokemon out there, players need to tackle Raids. While 1 and 3-Star Raids feature relatively easy-to-get creatures, 5-Star and Mega Raids are headlined by the most powerful species in the franchise.

Legendary Pokemon, Ultra Beasts, and Mega Evolutions bring some of the toughest challenges to the game. That’s why the game recommends facing these Raids with a group of prepared trainers. However, more and more trainers try to tackle them alone due to the difficulty of coordinating groups locally or even remotely.

Reddit user ‘GlitchingChair’ shared their achievement in soloing the Mega Tyranitar Raid in Pokemon Go, with only 6 seconds remaining. The trainer commented: “I had to revive all pokemons in mid match and then continue.” Players need to build teams of six Pokemon to tackle Raids, and if all six are defeated, they need to pick a new team or revive the downed Pokemon while the timer is still running.

The OP confirmed the Raid was done under Cloudy Weather, which boosts Fighting-type moves that are super-effective (4x) against Mega Tyranitar. Additionally, they shared their team of Fighting-type Pokemon alongside their CP and movesets:

  • Shadow Machamp – CP 2887 and 2500 – Both Counter/Dynamic Punch
  • Machamp – CP 3372 – Counter/Dynamic Punch
  • Conkeldurr – CP 3392 and 2898 – Both Counter/Dynamic Punch
  • Lucario – CP 2409 – Counter/Aura Sphere

Other players thanked the OP for sharing the formula for success. However, another trainer commented: “It would cost me 1.200.000 dust to get that team.” Others pointed out that Terrakion and Mega Blaziken are also great counters for this Raid, but the OP’s team is more accessible for all types of players.

Lastly, other trainers recommended using third-party apps and websites to check the “soloability” of Pokemon Go Raids. It’s worth noting that soloing a Raid is a race against time, so you should focus on dealing as much damage as you can as fast as you can.
