Palkia (Origin Forme) in Pokémon Go

Palkia (Origin Forme) is a dual-type Water and Dragon Pokémon with a CP of 2274 to 2367 at level 20 with no weather boosts. It is weak towards only Dragon and Fairy type attacks. It is an adamant Pokémon to fight against so even if you are a very experienced player with perfect counters, you will still need to bring no less than four trainers. If you have good enough counters, I recommend having six to ten trainers on your team.
