Pokémon Go Cobalion raid guide: counters and best movesets
Cobalion has joined Pokémon Go’s tier five raids, making it the first Unovan Legendary to do so.
Cobalion itself isn’t great for raiding or anything, but hey, a new Legendary releasing means that you have a new hole in your Pokédex to fill.
To take on Cobalion, use fighting-, ground-, and fire-type moves. We recommend any of the following:
Machamp with Counter and Dynamic Punch
Groudon with Mud Shot and Earthquake
Chandelure with Fire Spin and Overheat
Moltres with Fire Spin and Overheat
Other good Pokémon to use would be any of the fire-type starters with Community Day move Blast Burn, like Charizard. Hariyama and Breloom also work as fighting-types that’ll help get the job done.
The best moveset for Cobalion is Metal Claw and Iron Head, making use of its steel typing, but note that it’s heavily outclassed by picks like Metagross and Dialga.
Cobalion will leave tier five raids on Nov. 26 at 4 p.m. ET.
