Kyogre in Pokémon Go
Kyogre is a legendary pokemon. This pure Water-type being is highly vulnerable to Grass and Electric-type movesets. So if you have strong Shadow Electric types along with some Grass pokemon, taking this on becomes significantly easier. Do not attempt this Battle Raid in Rainy weather as Kyogre gets a boost. This is useful information if your Pokémon are not strong enough.
Being a Water-type, it is susceptible to Grass and Electric attacks. Kyogre’s strongest moves are Waterfall and Surf with a DPS of 15.48. Going in as a team of 2-4 with the best-suited Pokémon is more than enough to successfully finish a Kyogre Battle Raid.
