Best Chill Drive Genesect Raid Counters in August 2022

Trainers, the Pokemon Go Bug Out! event is about to begin. The Bug Out! event will take place from August 10th to August 16th; during the event, three new bug-type Pokemon will debut (Grubbin, Charjabug, and Vikavolt.) This evolutionary line reaches its final evolution using a Magnetic Lure. During the event, bug Pokemon will spawn rampantly, giving players the chance to catch some Pokemon’s shiny variations. During the event, Mega Scizor and Chill Drive Genesect will be appearing in raids.

The Chill Drive Genesect raid will be available from August 10th to August 18th, 2022. Shiny Genesect will not be available to encounter in this raid. Earlier today, we covered the best Mega Scizor raid counters in Pokemon Go, now let’s discuss the best Chill Dive Genesect raid counters.

Chill Drive Genesect Raid Counters

Going into the Chill Drive Genesect raid,  trainers will need Pokemon with a high defensive stat or strong type effective attacks. Overall, Chill Drive Genesect is one of the easiest mythical Pokemon in Pokemon Go due to its weakness to Fire-type Pokemon. The raid can be easily completed by a team of 3 to 5 trainers; a team of 4 to 6 trainers can take it down quicker and a team of 6 to 20 trainers can burn through it making a better completionist bonus.

Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Charizard or Mega Houndoom will make the battle a lot easier for most trainers. Ultimately, you will want to use Fire-type Pokemon. Be careful, because the raid can be difficult if using Grass, Bug, Dragon, Poison, Psychic, Steel, Ice, Normal, or Fairy-type Pokemon.

Here are the best counters to overcoming the raid. Some of these recommendations can be substituted out for Pokemon with type advantage or a better move set.

  • Reshiram – Fire Fang & Overheat
