Entei’ Raid Counters

Going into the Entei Raid, trainers will need Pokemon with a high defensive or HP stat or fast water attacks. Overall, the Entei raid is an average difficulty Legendary Pokemon raid to take down in Pokemon Go with a well-rounded team. The raid can be easily completed by a team of 2 to 4 trainers; a team of 2 to 6 trainers will make it easier but makes for a better completionist bonus. Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Blastoise or Mega Gyarados will make trainer’s lives easier. Ultimately, you will want to use Rock, Ground, and Water-type Pokemon. Be careful, because the raid can be difficult if using grass, steel, or ice-type Pokemon.

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


  • Mega Blastoise – Water Gun & Hydro Cannon
  • Rampardos – Smack Down & Rock Slide
  • Kyogre – Waterfall & Hydro Pump
  • Rhyperior – Mud-Slap & Rock Wrecker
  • Garchomp – Mud Shot & Earthquake
  • Kingler – Bubble & Crabhammer


  • Mega Aerodactyl – Rock Throw & Rock Slide
  • Mega Gyarados – Waterfall & Hydro Pump
  • Mega Slowbro – Water Gun & Water Pulse
  • Terrakion – Smack Down & Rock Slide
  • Swampert – Water Gun & Hydro Cannon
  • Landorus – Mud Shot & Earthquake
  • Groudon – Mud Shot & Earthquake
  • Clawitzer – Water Gun & Crabhammer
  • Samurott – Waterfall & Hydro Cannon
  • Feraligatr – Water Gun & Hydro Cannon
  • Empoleon – Waterfall & Hydro Cannon
  • Palkia – Dragon Tail & Hydro Pump
  • Tyranitar – Smack Down & Stone Edge

With these choices, taking down the Entei raid should be a walk in the park. A team of two high-level trainers should be able to take down the raid with ease. Trainers will have the chance to encounter a Shiny Entei if they are lucky.
