Jolteon Raid Guide (Best Counters & Weaknesses)

Trainers who do not own rare Pokémon like Manectric or Zapdos but still would like a solid Electric-type monster in their Pokémon GO roster can get Jolteon, one of the Raid Bosses appearing during September 2022. This creature was once the fennec fox-like Eevee but has experienced an electric supercharge. With high-voltage electricity now running through its body, Jolteon is an excellent mid-game counter for opponents like Togekiss, Lapras, Walrein, or Snorlax in Pokémon GO.

Since Jolteon’s sole element is Electric, understanding how to counter this Raid Boss is relatively straightforward in Pokémon GO. Regarding elemental resistances, Trainers are recommended not to use Flying-, Steel-, or Electric-type attacks on Jolteon in combat. On the other hand, Ground-type is the only weakness this Raid Boss has, making the counter selection process significantly easy. Nevertheless, Jolteon is set at Tier-3 with CP 20,800 and HP 3,600. Therefore, Trainers should approach this Raid mindfully, bringing at least one to two friends for help.

Pokebattler states that Shadow Mamoswine, Landorus Therian, Excadrill, Groudon, Rhyperior, and Garchomp are the best Ground-type counter for Jolteon in a Pokémon GO Raid. Yet, Shadow Mamoswine, Landorus Therian, and Groudon are quite challenging to obtain, making Excadrill, Rhyperior, and Garchomp the top-3 prospects for this 3-Star Raid in Pokémon GO. Suppose participants do not own any of these three optimal choices; in that case, the index below provides several more excellent options for Ground-type Pokémon.

If any Trainers are still lacking any of the Ground-type counters listed above, they can use pocket monsters that are neutral or resistant to Jolteon’s Electric-type Moves. For example, Hydreigon and Vikavolt are both unsusceptible to Electric-type attacks, making them excellent alternatives to Ground-type combatants. Still, be sure that such choices have a high-enough CP before entering the Raid in Pokémon GO.
