Pokemon Go Reshiram Guide: Best Counters, Weaknesses, And Raid Hours
A new Legendary Pokemon has arrived in Pokemon Go. Reshiram, the cover monster from Pokemon Black, is appearing in five-star Raids until June 16, making this your first chance to capture one in Niantic's hit mobile game. Even a seasoned Pokemon Master needs a little assistance now and then, however, so we've rounded up some tips to help you battle and catch Reshiram below.
Reshiram will periodically appear in Gyms as a five-star Raid boss until 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET on June 16. These Raids can occur at any time, but you'll receive a notification before a nearby one is about to begin, so you shouldn't have much difficulty tracking a Raid down.
Niantic will also hold a handful of Reshiram Raid Hour events on Wednesday evenings. From 6-7 PM local time during these events, nearly every Gym will host a Reshiram Raid, giving you a much better chance to find the Legendary. You can see the Reshiram Raid Hour schedule below:
Reshiram is a Dragon/Fire type, which gives it a handful of common weaknesses that you can exploit. Thanks to its Fire typing, Reshiram is vulnerable to Rock and Ground Pokemon like Rhyperior, Groudon, Rampardos, and Terrakion, making any of those great choices when battling the Legendary.
Reshiram is also weak to other Dragon Pokemon. Rayquaza, Haxorus, Salamence, and Dragonite can all dish out a ton of damage against it, although be aware that they will take super-effective damage in return from Reshiram's Dragon-type attacks.
