Three Legendary raids will also take place during March 2022. From March 1st, 2022 to March 15th, 2022, Mega Venusaur and Tapu Koko will appear in raids. No shiny variation will appear after the Tapu Koko raid; so ultimately, trainers will be trying for the best Tapu Koko Stats.

Tapu Koko’ Raid Counters

Going into the Tapu Koko Raid, trainers will need Pokemon with high defensive stats or fast strong attacks. Overall, Tapu Koko is one of the easier Legendary Pokemon to take down in Pokemon Go with a well-rounded team. This legendary raid can be completed by a team of 3 to 5 trainers; a team of 6 to 20 trainers is overkill but makes for a better completionist bonus; more balls. Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Gengar or Mega Steelix will make trainers’ lives a lot easier. Ultimately, you will want to use poison or ground-type Pokemon. Be careful, because the Tapu Koko raid can be difficult if using a bug, dark, dragon, electric, fighting, and flying-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.


  • Mega Gengar – Lick & Sludge Bomb
  • Excadrill – Mud-Slap & Drill Run
  • Landorus (Therian) – Mud Shot & Earthquake
  • Rhyperior – Mud-Slap & Earthquake
  • Garchomp – Mud Shot & Earth Power
  • Groudon – Mud Shot & Earthquake


  • Ho-Oh – Incinerate & Sacred Fire
  • Mega Steelix – Iron Tail & Earthquake
  • Mega Beedrill – Poison Jab & Sludge Bomb/Drill Run
  • Roserade – Poison Jab & Sludge Bomb
