Pokemon GO: How To Solo Sharpedo Raids

Pokemon GO Gen 3 Ice and Water type Kyogre

Pokemon GO's battle raids are designed to be tackled with cooperation between players, but one of the fun challenges for advanced players is learning to defeat the bosses without any help. This is pretty easy with level one and two raids, but level three is where the trouble starts. Luckily, Sharpedo is currently in rotation thanks to the Water Festival and this is a perfect boss to practice with.

Sharpedo is weak to a lot of -types and has a low defense, which makes this level three Pokemon GO battle raid a perfect gateway into solo'ing. Players who are level 25 or higher should have what it takes to make it through this fight, assuming they follow the correct strategy and have invested some candy and stardust into their battle roster.

Here's everything trainers need to know...

Sharpedo's Weaknesses

Best Counters

Raikou with Thunder Shock and Wild Charge

Zapdos with Charge Beam and Thunder Bolt

Jolteon with Thunder Shock and Thunder Bolt

Hariyama with Counter and Dynamic Punch

Machamp with Counter and Dynamic Punch

Heracross with Counter and Close Combat

Because of Sharpedo's weak defenses, weather isn't super important to this fight. Even when the boss is weather boosted, this roster of fighters at the proper level should still get the job done.

That's all there is to it! Good luck out there, trainers!
