Pokémon Go Durant Raid: Best Moveset, Counters, and Tips

Guide for the best counters against Durant during Battle Raids!

Durant is a Tier 3 Raid Boss in Pokémon Go. It looks like an insect and has a steel body featuring three distinct sections. Its abdomen is dark gray along with a light gray band wrapping in the middle. As it is a Tier 3 Pokémon, as long as you use the right counters, you won’t face many problems against it. So in this Pokémon Go guide, we are going to talk about the best counters that I think you should use against Durant to win easily.

Durant in Pokémon Go

Durant is a dual-type Bug and Steel Pokémon with a maximum CP of 2380 at level 50. It is vulnerable to only Fire-type attacks but it also has a double weakness towards it. You can fight against Durant all by yourself if you want to but if you want a super easy victory against it, you should bring a friend or two into the battle.

The best moves that I’ve discovered from the movepool of Durant are Metal Claw and Iron Head. Both of them have a combined DPS of 51.6. It is also the best combination of moves that you can use in both Pokémon Gyms and PvP battles. Other decent attacks that you can use from its moveset include Bug Bite, X-Scissor, and Stone Edge.

If you don’t have your best counters in the form of Fire-type Pokémon, then I’ll recommend you to team up with your level best Fire Pokémon along with the teams of your friends to have a smooth victory.
