Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Thunder Shock is superior to Volt Switch on offense, sporting higher DPS, higher energy gains, and improved dodging.
  • Wild Charge is superior to Thunderbolt. It has 10 extra power for only 0.1 sec extra cast time. Both moves are good.
  • Thunder is a fine option, but is too slow to maximize Raikou’s potential.
Rating Explanation:

Raikou is an amazing legendary to have on your team. Like Zapdos, Electric-types are coveted due to the inundation of Water-types on defense and at raids. Raikou has a little less Atk than Zapdos, but makes up for it in its movesets. Access to Wild Charge and strong quick moves put this Pokemon at the top of the charts.

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.
