Cacturne Raid Guide

Cacturne is a dual Grass- and Dark-type Pokémon available in 3-star Raids.

It is solo-able for high-level Trainers with teams consisting of top Bug-, Fairy-, Fighting-, Fire-, Flying-, Ice-, and Poison-type counters such as Genesect, Pinsir, Lucario, and Moltres. Lower-level Trainers, or Trainers lacking proper counters, should Raid in larger groups (2-20) to take out the Scarecrow Pokémon.

CACTURNE YOUTUBER CONTENT

Here’s a collection of YouTuber content focused on Cactai Raids.

In these videos, you will find counters, short-man experiences, and tips & tricks to help you in your battles against the Scarecrow Pokémon.

NOT A PRICKLY PEAR

All things said, the scarecrow cactus isn’t awful. It’s only real downfall, is that there’s better Grass-types and better Dark-types. It has a solid move set, so you could use it in PvE if you want, and you can also surprise some people with it in PvP. Keep up to date with the availability of Cacturne in Raids by checking out the Current Raid Boss List on our Homepage.
