Pokemon Go Reshiram Duo or Trio Raid Guide
You can best fight Reshiram with Dragon or Rock type moves. You can beat it with at least 2 or 3 players, but prepare to have to rejoin the battle. As counters we recommend Rayquaza & Salamence’s Dragon Tail/Outrage, Palkia’s Dragon Tail/Draco Meteor, and Dragonite’s Dragon Tail/Outrage. There’s also the most common choice in Rhyperior’s Smack Down/Rock Wrecker or Mud Slap/Earthquake. The closer those Pokemon’s levels are to level 35-40, the better.
The moveset you’ll want to face Reshiram with is the Fire Fang fast attack and Overheat charge attack, because it has does the least Damage Per Second to you. Any other charge attack and you’ll have to dodge it to survive, although dodging is recommended for all charge attacks.
Be wary of the Dragon Breath fast attack and Draco Meteor charge attack move combination, as it has the highest total Damage Per Second. On the bright side, once you take it down and catch it, this combination makes for a great moveset during Player VS Player battles. Although Reshiram is said to currently be the strongest fire attacker in the game as well.
Normally it would be best to battle it during cloudy or rainy weather, so it won’t have any weather boosted stats. However, with dragon counters that also means your Pokemon won’t have boosted attacks either, so you might as well battle during Sunny, Foggy, Windy or Partly Cloudy weather to get boosted dragon attacks yourself.
