The best way to counter Shadow Raid Bosses is by using Purified Gems as they help in subduing the Pokémon’s attack and defense abilities temporarily which will give players the opening to use their best level Pokémon for the counterattack and secure a win for themselves. Players can also use more than one Purified Gem at a time and their effects will stack up on the Pokémon.
