The featured Pokémon for this week’s Raid Hour is Kyurem. During the Raid Hour, players worldwide will see an increase in the number of Tier 5 Raids, half of which will host Kyurem: the Boundary Pokémon!

Raid Guide


The Raid Hour is hosted every Wednesday from 6pm to 7pm local time. Being hosted local time means that no matter where you are in the world, the Raid Hour will start at exactly 6pm, and you don’t have to adjust for time zones.

  • Type: Dragon, Ice
  • Weak Against: Dragon, Fairy, Fighting, Rock, Steel
  • Strong Against: Electric, Grass, Water
  • Notes
    • Kyurem’s Dragon-type cancels out his weakness to Fire, so avoid Fire attacks.
    • Kyurem is both vulnerable to Steel attacks and weak against their defense, so Steel Pokémon are best against Kyurem.


Because Mega Pokémon are rarely used, we opted not to include them in the list of the best counters.
