Shiftry Raid Guide

Shiftry is a dual Grass- and Dark-type Pokémon once available in 4-star Raids, now in 3-star Raids. Due to its dual typing, it has A LOT of weaknesses. It was soloable for high level Trainers as a T4, and is still soloable now. Your best bet to succeed will be Bug-type Pokémon, as Shiftry suffers a double weakness to Bug-type Moves. A team of strong Bugs like Pinsir, Yanmega, and Scizor can do the job. It is not as difficult of a solo as it used to be, but you’ll want to be prepared. Trainers without good counters should raid in larger groups of 2-5.

SHIFTRY, TWO, ONE... GO!

Well, you might want to wait to GO… Shiftry might look dope (is that just me?), but it’s nothing to get overly excited about. It doesn’t have a place in the current meta, as it’s outclassed by numerous other Grass- and Dark-types, and Raids offer more exciting Bosses to conquer. 

On the other hand, it does offer an awesome solo challenge, and last but not least, it can have its place in certain PvP metas. Other than that, your Raid Pass probably wants to be put elsewhere. no, not there
