Prinplup is a Tier 3 Raid Boss in Pokémon Go. It is a penguin-like Pokémon with two large wings and a yellow crown that lies above its eyes. It won’t be much of a problem to defeat this Pokémon as it is a Tier 3 Raid Boss that you can win against quite easily if you use the counters I recommend. So in this Pokémon guide, we are going to talk about the best ways and counters using which you’ll be able to defeat Prinplup in the best way possible.

Prinplup in Pokémon Go

Prinplup is a pure type Water Pokémon with CP ranging from 914 to 972 at level 20 with no weather boosts. It is vulnerable to mainly Electric and Grass-type attacks and is strong against Fire, Ice, Steel, and Water-type counters. If you have the best counters along with yourself and are also heavily experienced with the game, you’ll be able to fight against Prinplup all by yourself. But if you are a low-level player, you should bring two to three friends and yourself into the battle.

You should try to fight against Prinplup in Sunny weather as it will boost your Grass-type attacks. To boost your Electric counters, you’ll need to fight in Rainy weather which will also boost Prinplup’s moves too. So you’ll need to be careful about this.
