Best Kyogre Raid Counters in 2022

Kyogre Raid Pokemon Go

Another month, another new event in Pokemon GO so we prepped the Best Kyogre Raid Counters in 2022.

Earlier this month, Niantic unveiled its plans for events in Pokemon GO throughout June. Outside of Pokemon Go Fest taking place on June 4th and 5th, trainers will see the return of the primal Pokemon and Mewtwo.

Throughout June, trainers will have the opportunity to battle and catch Kyogre and Groudon. Kyogre will spawn in Legendary raids from June 1st to June 7th at 10 AM local time. Trainers who are lucky will have the chance to encounter a shiny Kyogre. Sadly, at this time we will not see the emergence of Primal Kyogre in raids but there is hope.

Now check out our Kyogre Raid guide below to learn the best raid counters!

Kyogre Raid Counters

Going into the Kyogre Raid, trainers will need Pokemon with  high defensive stats or type effective attacks. Overall, Kyogre is one of the primal Legendary Pokemon to take down in Pokemon Go with a well-rounded team. This raid can be easily completed by a team of 3 to 5 trainers; a team of 6 to 20 trainers can easily take it down, so make sure to get a better completionist bonus for additional Balls.

Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Venasaur or Mega Manectric will make trainers’ lives easier. Ultimately, you will want to use Grass or Electric-type Pokemon. Be careful, because the raid can be difficult if using fire, ground, or rock-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.

Primary Kyogre Raid Counters:

  • Mega Manectric – Thunder Fang & Wild Charge
  • Zekrom – Charge Beam & Wild Charge
  • Raikou – Thunder Shock & Wild Charge
  • Thundurus (Therian) – Thunder Shock & Thunderbolt

June’s Mega raids are repeat raids from earlier this year; if you have yet to battle Mega Steelix, Aerodactyl, Blastoise, or Venusaur then you have a second chance.
