Ludicolo is a unique Pokémon that you can encounter in Pokémon Go. However, when raiding against it, this three-star raid can be a little tricky, especially if you're trying to figure out the best Pokémon to use against it. These are all of Ludicolo's weaknesses and the best Pokémon to use against it during the raid.
All the weak points of Ludicolo
Ludicolo is a Grass and Water type Pokémon. It will be weak against Bug, Flying, and Poison-type attacks, but is resistant to Water, Ground, and Steel-type moves. You want to avoid using the electric types against. We highly recommend finding a combination of Flying and Poison-type fighters to use during this raid.
The best Pokémon against Ludicolo
The best Pokémon tokens to use against Ludicolo include Roserade, Honchkrow, and Genesect.
Roserade is a Grass and Poison type Pokémon. She is very effective at resisting many of Ludicolo's attacks because they are of the same type. Additionally, Roserade has a handful of Poison-type moves to take advantage of Ludicolo's weakness, making him an ideal candidate for these battles. The best moveset to use for Roserade is the fast moving poison strike and the mud bomb with charged moves and the grass knot.
Next, we have Honchkrow, a Dark and Flying-type Pokémon. While not quite as resistant to many of Ludicolo's attacks, it does have a decent amount of power behind it and a handful of ready-made Flying-type moves. The best move set he can use against Ludicolo is the fast moving growl and the Sky Attack and Brave Bird charged moves.
The last Pokémon we will recommend is Genesect, the Bug-type and Steel-type Pokémon. Genesect is a Mythical Pokémon, but it shows up quite often in five-star raids, meaning a good majority of players may have it in their collection. The best moveset to use for Genesect is the fast moving cutter fury and x-scissors and magnetic bomb charged moves.
You will need to use an entire team of six Pokémon against Ludicolo. Here are some other Pokémon that you can choose to consider using during these battles.
- Mega beedrill
- Mega gengar
- Mega pidgeot
Once Ludicolo is defeated, you will have a chance to catch him after the raid.
