How To Obtain Legendary Dogs In Pokemon Go?

Here are the details of each Legendary Dog and their weakness and counters:

1. Raikou

Raikou is an Electric-type Pokemon. It is an attack-centric Pokemon with the stats of  241 Attack Power, 195 Defense, and 207 Stamina

It is a great battle addition with a max Combat power of 3902.

Raikou is an electric-type Pokemon and can be obtained after defeating him in the raid.

To get this Legendary Dog, you must defeat him in Pokemon GO 5-star raids.

This Raid is mostly challenging but not impossible if you are prepared with the right strategy.

Raiko is only weak to Ground-type attacks because it is a single-type Pokemon that resists Electric, Flying, and Steel-type moves.

Therefore, you must arm yourself with a strong Ground-type Pokemon to defeat it.

Otherwise, use the Pokemon you feel best for this raid.

Here are some Pokemon you can use on this raid;

  • Shadow Golem: Uses Mud-Slap and Earthquake
  • Shadow Mamoswine: Attacks with Mud-Slap and High Horsepower
  • Primal Groudon: Uses Mud Shot and Earthquake
  • Escadrill: Mud-Slap and Drill Run
  • Shadow Garchomp: Mud Shot and Earth Power
  • Mamoswine: Mud-Slap and High Horsepower

You also have to know the move set to counter Raiko;

Raikou Move is categorized into two moves: Fast Moves and Charged Moves.

Fast Moves consist of moves like Thunder Shock and Volt Switch.

While Charged Moves contains moves such as Shadow Ball, Thunderbolt, and Wild Charge.

Now, you know the weakness and move list to defeat and get Raikou.

2. Entei 

Entei is a fire-type Pokemon with a passion for magma within it.

You can defeat Entei in 5-star raids for a chance to encounter Shiny Entei in Pokemon GO. 

However, there is no guarantee that you will get the shiny Entei.

Entei is a fire-type Pokemon and can be obtained after defeating him in the raid.

You can also defeat Entei with proper strategy and targeting its weak points.

Entei is weak against Ground, Rock, and Water-type moves, while it resists Bug, Fairy, Fire, Grass, Steel, and Ice.

To defeat Entei, you can form a counter-team comprising Garchomp, Groudon, Gyarados, Kyogre, Rhyperior, Swampert, Terrakion, and Tyranitar.

The great way to gain the upper hand in an early battle against Entei is by using the Water-type Pokemon.

This helps you to block Entei’s fire potential.

3. Suicune

Suicune is a water-type Pokemon, and you can get this Legendary Dog by winning the 5-star raid against Suicune.

Furthermore, you might even get lucky and get the shiny version of Suicune.

Therefore, exploiting the boss’s weakness is essential for improving the hunting experience.

Suicin is only weak against Grass and Electric-type attacks.

Legendary Dogs
Suicune is a water-type Pokemon and can be obtained after defeating him in the raid.

On the other hand, using elements like Steel, Fire, Water, and Ice is useless as it has resistance to any attack of these type.

If you have tons of Pocket Monster, here is the best counter of Suicane:

  • Mega Sceptile: With Bullet Seed and Frensy Plant
  • Kartana: Thunder Shock, Discharge
  • Xurkitree: Thunder Shock, Discharge
  • Zekrom: Charge Beam, Fusion Bolt
  • Zarude: Vine Whip, Power Whip
  • Thundurus: Thunder Shock, Thunderbolt

For the Movelist Suicane, here are given below;

Fast Moves consist of Extrasensory (Psychic), Snarl (Dark), and Ice Fang (Ice).

While Charge Moveslist consists of a Hydro Pump, Bubble Beam, Water Pulse, and Ice Beam.

Suican is worth adding to the list of powerful opponents as you can lose to him even if you are prepared.

However, you can win by gathering the best counter with a fitting moveset and max level.

The Bottom Line 

Legendary Dogs are the Pokemon recently added to the game as the Raid Boss.

They seem to be a tough and challenging opponent to deal with without any strategy.

However, with proper strategy, counter and suitable movesets, even a beginner can defeat the Legendary Dogs.

Therefore, keep on exploring the counters, moveset and weakness of these Pokemon and playing raids to get one of Legendary Dogn in your roster.
