How To Defeat Tier 4 & 5 Raid Bosses In Pokemon Go? Be Ready For Legendaries!

The Tier 4 Bosses are quite tough. They are the third evolutions of starters, the dominators like Tyranitar or Rhydon, or singular powerhouses like Lapras or Snorlax. In order to beat them, you will need your most powerful Pokemon and a minimum of four friends.

Venusaur

  • Flareon – Fire Spin + Overheat/Charizard Fire Sping + Overheat and other fire types, as well as bug, poison, flying and ice-types.

Charizard

  • Golem – Rock Throw + Stone Edge/Vaporeon Water Gun + Hydro Pump and other rock, ground, and water-types.

Blastoise

  • Jolteon – Thunder Shock + Thunderbolt/Exeggutor anything + Solar Beam, and other electric and grass-types.

Rhydon

  • Vaporeon – Water Gun + Hydro Pump/Exeggutor anything + Solar Beam, also Victoreebel and grass and water types at 2x, as well as ground, steel, fighter, and ice.

Lapras

  • Exeggutor – anything + Solar Beam/Jolteon Thunder Shock + Thunderbolt/Machamp Counter + Dynamic Punch, and other fighters, grass, electric, and rock-types.
