Cobalion heads to Raids in Pokémon GO: here’s how to beat it

The Pokémon Cobalion has come to mobile title Pokémon GO and will now appear in 5-star raids. It is the first of the musketeer trio to land in the game, with Terrakion and Virizion slated to appear later.

Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion and Keldeo make up the Swords of Justice

The Iron Will Pokémon is Steel/Fighting-type and shouldn’t prove to be much of a challenge for well prepared trainers.

Best Cobalion counters

The best type of Pokémon to bring into battle are Fighting, Ground or Fire-types with STAB moves equipped. A Blast Burn-wielding Blaziken or Charizard would be a good choice, Machamp with Dynamic Punch, Entei with Overheat or Groudon with Earthquake.

As long as you have a group of 5 friends or more (and choose your team wisely), you should be able to take it down.

Using Cobalion

So you caught it, now what? The best moveset for your new Cobalion is probably Metal Claw as its quick attack and Iron Head as its charge move because they benefit from STAB and have high dps (damage-per-second).
