  5. Floatzel is a Tier 3 Raid Boss in Pokémon GO (16082 Combat Power). Its best counters are strong Electric-types such as Raikou, Electivire, and Magnezone. Floatzel is also weak to Grass-type moves, so Roserade, Sceptile, Venusaur, and Kantonian Exeggutor, are also featured in its counter list. The following CP values are possible when caught in a post-raid encounter: 1323- 1396 CP for a regular Level 20 encounter 1655- 1745 CP for a Rainy weather boosted encounter (Level 25) Floatzel Base Stats Attack: 221 Defense: 114 Stamina: 198 Max CP: 2443 Floatzel Raid Guide Floatzel is a very easy Tier 3 solo even with a team of counters at level 20. So, even if you don’t have a full team yet, it’ll be very cheap to build one. Floatzel Raid Counters Floatzel Weakness Grass Electric Boosted by Rainy Supreme Counters at Level 30 – Ordered by TTW – No Boosts Raikou Thunder Shock Electric Wild Charge Electric Electivire Thunder Shock Electric Wild Charge Electric Roserade Razor Leaf Grass Grass Knot Grass Zapdos Thunder Shock Electric Thunderbolt Electric Magnezone Spark Electric Wild Charge Electric Sceptile Bullet Seed Grass Frenzy Plant Grass Luxray Spark Electric Wild Charge Electric Venusaur Vine Whip Grass Frenzy Plant Grass Breloom Bullet Seed Grass Grass Knot Grass Other Viable Counters Mewtwo Confusion Psychic Thunderbolt Electric Exeggutor Bullet Seed Grass Solar Beam Grass Tangrowth Vine Whip Grass Solar Beam Grass Exeggutor (Alola) Bullet Seed Grass Solar Beam Grass Jolteon Thunder Shock Electric Thunderbolt Electric Victreebel Razor Leaf Grass Leaf Blade Grass *Italics indicates Legacy.

  8. Until May 27th at 1 PM PDT, Uxie will be the Tier 5 Raid Boss in the Aisa Pacific Region. To help you build your best possible team of counters for this third of the Lake Guardian trio, we’ve put together a Heat Map. What’s a Heat Map? Most Raid Boss counter lists assume that you have maxed out versions of each of the Pokémon on it, but in reality, the majority of people do not. With our Uxie Heat Map, however, you can identify whether a lower level Pokémon will do more damage to the Raid Boss than a higher level one, due to it having a better and more effective moveset. An excellent example of this is how a level 25 Giratina (Origin Forme) with Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball will do more damage to an Uxie Raid Boss than a level 40 Giratina (Origin Forme) with Shadow Claw and Ominous Wind (given the same amount of time). There are several different methods for ranking Raid Boss counters, but the one we’ve selected to use is TTW, which stands for ‘Time-To-Win.’ This metric tells you which Pokémon would potentially beat the Raid Boss in the shortest amount of time, so if you’re short of Trainers, this will give you the best chance of beating Uxie before the time runs out. Not only that, but doing more damage can mean more Premier Balls with which to try and catch the Raid Boss! So to supplement our Uxie Raid Guide, here’s the Heat Map that we’ve made. Below, we’ll explain how to read and use the Heat Map to get the most out of your Raid squads: Uxie Heat Map Uxie Heat Map(Shoutouts go to Pokebattler.com for the data, Redditor u/Rayunge for his guidance in compiling the data, and GOHub Artist OrangeHeart for putting the data into infographic form) *This data assumes that you don’t know the moveset of the Raid Boss, that no moves will be weather boosted, and that you aren’t getting a friend damage bonus, so basically, almost the worst case scenario; unless the weather boosts the Raid Boss’ moves, things can only get easier. How to Use Our Heat Maps As detailed at the bottom of the graphic, to use a Pokémon GO Hub Heat Map, you first need to identify which of the listed Pokémon you have, whether they have the specified moveset (If not, you can of course use some TMs) and what level they are. As a rough guide: If your Pokémon is fully powered up (and you’re at Trainer Level 38 or above), it’s at Level 40. If it costs around 8000 Stardust to power up, it’s at about level 35. If it costs around 5000 Stardust to power up, it’s at about level 30. If it costs around 4000 Stardust to power up, it’s at about level 25. If it costs around 2500 Stardust to power up, it’s at about level 20. Try to identify your 12 best counters so that you can fill two Battle Parties because if Uxie defeats your first Party and you don’t want to use Max Revives, you’ll then have your next-best-optimized one ready to go straight back into battle. Once you know which of these Pokémon you have and roughly what level they are, it’s time to put them in order of best to worst; The numbers in the grid represent how long that counter, at that level, with that moveset would take to beat the raid boss if the counter had unlimited HP. So the lower (and greener) the number, the better. When you’ve ordered your Pokémon from best to worst, you can make a couple of battle parties so that you’re ready for every encounter you have with the Raid Boss. Checking the TTW of Other Counters If you need to check the TTW of a potential counter that isn’t listed in the Heat Map, here’s a quick rundown of how to do this: Visit the Raid Counters section of Pokebattler.com Scroll down until you find the Custom Raid section Choose the Raid Boss you’re trying to counter and the level of the counter you’re trying to find the TTW for. Leave the Weather set to ‘Extreme’ and the Friend bonus set to ‘Not Friends’ – this provides you with a (near) worst case scenario. Click ‘Find Best Raider’ and a list of counters will populate. At the top of the list of counters, there will be two small icons. One allows you to choose the metric (TTW, Estimator, etc.), while the other allows you to choose whether to group the counters by species or display all of their movesets singularly. Choose TTW on one and Single on the other. Find the potential counter you’re looking for in the list (there’s a ‘More’ button if it doesn’t appear the top 24) and compare it to the rest of your potential counters. Remember to check that you’re looking at the same moveset as your Pokémon has (or check which one has the lowest TTW and TM to that). If you need any further help on this, feel free to contact me using the links below. Best of luck in your battles with Uxie, and if you have any feedback, suggestions or changes you’d like to see in our future Raid Boss Heat Maps, please Tweet @GoHubQoncept or join us on the GO Hub Discord and tag @Qoncept with your comments.

  13. This week’s News Roundup sees a significant release of new content and events. The announcement of a Raid Week Event, including a Special Lapras Raid Day; the release of most of the remaining Sinnoh Pokémon; Blaziken getting the exclusive Community Day move Blast Burn and a new move Blake Kick. The announcement of the dates for Yokohama Go Fest, and two new Pokémon Mobile Games; the full worldwide release of Ingress Portal Nomination; and two mini-events for May 18th & 19th. It looks like Niantic has started to kick off an event packed summer. New Pokémon and Lures May 17th saw the release of the final wave of New Sinnoh Pokemon. The new list of Pokémon includes the following families: Cherubi, Burmy, Shellos, Hippopotas, and Gibble. Additionally, three new lures were introduced: Glacial, Magnetic, and Mossy. These lures attract certain Pokémon Types, plus they are the only method to evolve into the newly released Glaceon, Leafeon, Magnezon, and Probopass. This brings the remaining non-legendary or mythical Pokémon to Mime Jr. and Rotom. Lastly, a new Ground Charge Move – Earth Power was released. This move is a 2 Bar Charge Move with 100 Base Power. Side Note: the Eevee naming trick continues with Glaceon and Leafeon. Linnea -> Leafeon and Rea -> Glaceon. Extraordinary Raid Week It was announced that an Extraordinary Raid Week will take place May 21st – 28th, which will consist of three separate events. First off is the release of Shiny Bronzor. This Psychic Steel Pokémon has been somewhat rare, and increased spawns will help many finally evolve into Bronzong. Second is a shake-up of Raid Bosses; this list includes many fan-favorite Shiny Pokémon. Third and possibly most exciting is the announcement of a Lapras Raid Day! This event will operate the same as the Legendary Bird and Gengar Raid Days and take place on May 26th in the Asia Pacific Region and May 25th in the rest of the World. Lapras caught during the Raid Window will have the Legacy Moves Ice Shard and Ice Beam, plus Shiny Lapras was just released at Sentosa Safari Zone. Check out our Lapras Raid Counters Guide for help preparing for this special event. Lastly are the two Bonuses running during the event: 2x Raid Stardust and XP Blaziken CD Move Announced It was announced that Blaziken would follow the other Fire Starters and get access to the Exclusive CD Move Blast Burn. This powerful Fire move is the most powerful one available to Blaziken. It was also announced that starting on Community Day Blaziken will also gain access to Blaze Kick via TM. This is the signature move for Blaziken in the Main Series Games, and while not quite as good as Blast Burn, it is better than Overheat. Pikachu Outbreak & Yokohama Go Fest Niantic announced that Yokohama Go Fest will take place during Pikachu Outbreak this year! These events will take place August 6-12. Go Fest will require a ticket that will be available in a similar method to Chicago and Dortmund. Both Pikachu Outbreak and Yokohama Go Fest were huge successes last year, so this year should be no exception. Pokémon Rumble The announcement of Pokémon Rumble coming to mobile happened on May 15th came with its release in the Australian Google Play Store. Pokémon Rumble Rush is a free-to-start game in which you discover new islands and the various Pokémon that inhabit them. Each island also has its own Super Bosses that offer items to power up your Pokémon. This game joins Rumble Games for Wii, 3DS, and Wii U. DeNA Pokémon Game DeNA, a big player in the gaming world, has announced a new Pokémon mobile game in their financial report! This new mobile game will be a partnership between The Pokémon Company and DeNA. According to the financial report made available by DeNA, the game should be released this fiscal year, which lasts until March 2020. DeNa – pronounced D-N-A is a Japanese developer company that has previously teamed up with Nintendo for games such as Super Mario Run, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Fire Emblem: Heroes, and the upcoming Mario Kart Tour. Ingress Prime Portal Nominations Ingress Portal Nomination is now available to Agents across the globe! This feature uses the newly introduced Ingress Prime scanner, and after months of testing, has finally rolled out worldwide. This is exciting news for Pokémon Go because this Portal Nomination system is the same one used for PokéStop nomination; therefore, most new Ingress Portals appear in Pokémon Go. This means PokéStop nomination may be released worldwide sooner rather than later. Long Night of the Museums Announcement Another Mini Event, Long Night of the Museums, was announced for May 18th in Hamburg, Germany. This event features 4-hour lures, 2x Stardust, 50+ extra PokéStops, and increased Finneon spawns. VivaCalleSJ A second Mini Event, VivaCalleSJ, will take place May 19th in San Jose, California. This event will feature a Niantic Scavenger Hunt. This event in the past has included increased stops and spawns.
