Kyogre is a Tier 5 Legendary Raid Boss in Pokémon Go, being a member of the Weather Trio with Groudon and Rayquaza. Best Kyogre counters are strong Electric and Grass-type Pokémon, but it heavily depends on Kyogre’s moveset.
Kyogre Raid Boss CP is 54411, and you can catch it in the following CP Ranges:
- 2260-2351 at Lvl 20, no weather boost
- 2825-2939 at Lvl 25 with Rainy weather
Kyogre can be duoed with high level Grass and Electric Pokémon boosted by their respective weather conditions. Beyond that challenge, we recommend groups of 3-6, for high-level trainers, or 7-20 for lower level trainers.
Kyogre Raid Counters
Kyogre has access to the following moves, completely following its lore and control over sea and weather:
- Waterfall Water (fast)
- Hydro Pump Water (1 bar, charged)
- Blizzard Ice (1 bar, charged)
- Thunder Electric (1 bar, charged)
Raikou, Magnezone, and Electivire are the all-star Kyogre counters, being good vs. all movesets with high damage and decent survivability to boot.
Blizzard is the most difficult Kyogre moveset as it renders Grass types unusable, as they are immediately taken out in one hit. This isn’t to say that the Grass type is not useful, the Grass-type counters are viable, especially during Sunny weather, but Blizzard Kyogre will decimate your Grass team and OHKO (One Hit KO) almost every Grass attacker in the game.
Additional Kyogre Counters
These counters are only meant for lower level players, those with a lack of access to counters, or for second (or third if you are unlucky) teams. However, they are still good to list:
- Cacturne with Sucker Punch/Grass Knot
- Groudon with Mud Shot/Solar Beam
- Latios with Dragon Breath/Solar Beam
- Manectric with Charge Beam/Wild Charge
- Vileplume with Razor Leaf/Solar Beam
- Alolan Golem with Volt Switch/Wild Charge
- Palkia with Dragon Breath/Draco Meteor
Tips for Catching Kyogre
Kyogre is notoriously difficult to catch due to its erratic behavior and frequent attacks in the capture bonus encounter. Kyogre will move from left to right, similar to other floating Pokémon, adding an additional level of frustration.
We suggest you practice curveballs from both screen ends and both rotations — especially if you’re not a “pro level curver.” We created a chart that displays all throw + berry combo chances to catch Kyogre:
