Shadow Gligar in Pokémon Go

Shadow Gligar is a dual-type Ground and Flying Pokémon which has a maximum CP of 2099 at level 50. It is vulnerable to Ice and Water-type attacks while having a 2x weakness towards Ice. As it is a Shadow Raid, players will need to use Shadow Shards and Purified Gems as it is much more difficult than a normal Tier 3 Raid even with ideal counters. Players who don’t have ideal counters should try to go in groups of two or more players.
