Overview

Entei day is here! Unfortunately, it falls in the dead of summer/winter, and it may be hard for find groups to venture out in the hot/cold. I know I’m on vacation and will need to rely on doing my raids in a small group, and others are likely facing the same issue.

Lucky for you, this is a simple trio. For the more adventurous, the duo is very achievable and assisted by 3 common weather conditions. Rock, Water, and Ground will shine.

Note: This guide focuses on the duo and assumes the additional Anniversary friendship boost is an additional 5% for best friends (15% total). We assume tier 5 raids. If this is tier 4, the counters and viable levels stay similar and your teams will need a little less depth

Approach

Team composition

Rampardos offers the most speed but will be much more fragile. Kyogre & Tyranitar offer more bulk with sufficient DPS to duo. Let weather form your team. Rock in Partly Cloudy, Water in Rain, and have some elite grounds fill in if it’s Clear. The weather boosts takes this from a difficult duo to a pretty reasonable one. Rampardos and Kyogre are always fantastic options for any weather. Rhyperior has versatility being filler level in neutral and duo worth in 3 weather conditions with different move sets! Relobby may be required depending on team composition, especially vs boosted fire moves when battling in Clear. Reviving or having a second team are both good options

Dodging

The dodge glitch death loop is somewhat fixed, and you’ll want to take full advantage here. Overheat and Fireblast are VERY easy to dodge, and avoiding a handful of these strong charges can allow you to avoid relobby!

Rampardos Rampardos
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating
  • Highest DPS counter. Fits on almost any team in any weather
  • Almost always requires relobby. Vs Iron Head a second relobby is necessary, but margin high enough to still
Counters viable for best friends at level 40
Tyranitar Tyranitar
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating
  • Tyranitar has great survival vs fire moves but will have trouble with Iron Head
  • One or two dodges vs the fire charged moves could be the difference between relobbying and finishing with your first team
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating
  • Amazing bulk, no fear of relobby
  • DPS not as high as other options, but still enough for duo
