Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Frost Breath is Articuno’s only quick move. Fortunately, it is arguably the best offensive fast move for Ice-type Pokemon.

  • Blizzard is on par with Ice Beam. Ice Beam may seem more useful because it is a 2-bar move, but its long animation time keeps it even with Blizzard.

  • Icy Wind is by far Articuno’s worst charge move. Despite being a 3-bar charge move, the low damage, and long animation time (even longer than Blizzard) prevent it from being useful.

Rating Explanation:

As the much-hyped first legendary bird species to be released in Pokemon GO, Articuno is a bit disappointing. Its base stats are defensively oriented in an offense-focused metagame, and Ice-type offense is a fairly low demand with the current catalogue of raid bosses.

That said, Articuno has taken the throne of the best overall Ice-type attacker in the game, possessing the second highest Atk stat (behind Jynx) and impressive bulk rivaling that of Lapras.

Raid Boss Counters
SupremeOverall best counter always. Almost always top in DPS and very high in survivability. The Pokemon you want for the job.
GoodThe next best if you don’t have Supreme Pokemon.
TankWhen you’re down to your 5-6th Pokemon and need to hold the line and not suck while doing it. Tanks always have more survivability than Supreme, but less DPS than Good.
GlassMore DPS than Good with significantly less survivability. Note: Less DPS than Supreme.
