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

Guide for the best counters against Infernape during Battle Raids!

Infernape is a Tier 3 Raid Boss in Pokémon Go. It is based on the physique of an ape. It is brown and is covered by flames all over its body. Infernape also has gold plates covering various parts of its body such as shoulders, wrists, knees, and chest. It is a part of the Sinnoh Tour and in my opinion, you won’t have much problem while fighting against it as long as you use the right counters. So in this Pokémon Go guide, we are going to talk about the best ways and counters using which you’ll be able to defeat Infernape easily.

Infernape in Pokémon Go

Infernape is a dual-type Fire and Fighting Pokémon with a maximum CP of 3033 at level 50. It is weak towards Flying, Ground, Psychic, and Water-type attacks. I’ve found out that if you are a high-level player with the best counters, you can fight against Infernape all by yourself. But if you are not experienced or don’t have the ideal counters, bringing a friend or two along with you into the battle would be the smart thing to do.

So this is also the best combination of moves that can be used in both Pokémon Gyms and PvP battles. Other decent attacks from its movepool include Rock Smash, Close Combat, Flamethrower, and Solar Beam.
