Raid Hours are hosted every Wednesday from the hours of 6pm to 7pm local time. Mega Absol’s Raid Hour will be on Oct. 27, 2021. The fact that it is local time means that no matter where you are in the world, the Raid Hour will start at exactly 6pm.

Raid Guide

There is some basic information you need to know about Absol, which we have listed it below.


  • Type: Dark
  • Weak Against: Bug, Fairy, Fighting
  • Strong Against: Psychic, Dark, Ghost
  • Notes
    • Fighting Pokémon are usually your best bet against Dark Pokémon. Fairy Pokémon are resistant to them and strong against them as well, but Fighting Pokémon attack moves are commonly regarded as some of the strongest in the game.


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

Although Bug Pokémon are also strong against Dark Pokémon, they are not resistant to them. For this reason, it’s best to use a Fighting or Fairy Pokémon.

That’s everything you need to know about the upcoming Raid Boss!
