The Pokemon Company International has recently unveiled valuable and official tips to enhance your experience in Pokemon GO. In this article, we will explore the latest information regarding Reshiram, a powerful and legendary Pokemon in the game. From identifying the best Pokemon to use in a Reshiram Raid to maximizing your chances of catching Reshiram and making the most of its potential, we’ll cover it all. So, let’s dive in!
Reshiram: The Vast White Pokemon with Immense Power
Reshiram, a Dragon- and Fire-type Legendary Pokemon originally discovered in the Unova region, possesses the ability to scorch the world with its fiery prowess. In order to excel in Raid Battles against Reshiram and successfully capture it, it is crucial to understand which Pokemon are most effective and how to strategize your team composition.
Choosing the Best Pokemon for a Reshiram Raid Battle
To optimize your chances of defeating Reshiram and dealing maximum damage, it is recommended to select Pokemon that have Ground-, Rock-, or Dragon-type Fast Attacks and Charged Attacks. These types exploit Reshiram’s vulnerabilities, as it is weak against Ground-, Rock-, and Dragon-type attacks. Additionally, utilizing Pokemon with the same type attacks will provide a 20% damage bonus. However, be cautious as Reshiram’s Dragon-type attacks can pose a threat to Dragon-type Pokemon.
Suggested Ground-type Pokemon for Reshiram Raids
– Groudon (Ground)
– Fast Attack: Dragon Tail (Dragon), Mud Shot (Ground)
– Charged Attack: Earthquake (Ground)
– Rhyperior (Ground/Rock)
– Fast Attack: Smack Down (Rock)
– Charged Attack: Rock Wrecker (Rock)*, Stone Edge (Rock)
– Mamoswine / Shadow Mamoswine (Ice/Ground)
– Fast Attack: Mud-Slap (Ground)
– Charged Attack: Ancient Power (Rock)*, Bulldoze (Ground), High Horsepower (Ground)
And many more ground-type Pokemon can prove effective in challenging Reshiram. Choose the Pokemon with the highest Combat Power (CP) and overall stats for optimal results, as these factors determine your victory speed, consequently impacting the number of Premier Balls received after the Raid Battle.
Suggested Rock-type Pokemon for Reshiram Raids
– Aerodactyl / Mega Aerodactyl (Rock/Flying)
– Fast Attack: Rock Throw (Rock)
– Charged Attack: Ancient Power (Rock), Rock Slide (Rock)

These are just a few examples of rock-type Pokemon that can contribute to a successful Reshiram Raid Battle. Remember to consider their CP and stats when choosing your team.
Suggested Dragon-type Pokemon for Reshiram Raids
– Dragonite / Shadow Dragonite (Dragon/Flying)
– Fast Attack: Dragon Breath (Dragon), Dragon Tail (Dragon)
– Charged Attack: Draco Meteor (Dragon)*, Draco Pulse (Dragon), Dragon Claw (Dragon), Outrage (Dragon)

– Charged Attack: Dragon Claw (Dragon)
Reshiram can be challenged effectively with the power of dragon-type Pokemon. Consider their movesets and choose wisely to maximize your damage output.
Making the Most of Premier Balls and Berries
After successfully defeating Reshiram in a Raid Battle, you will be granted a limited number of Premier Balls for capturing it. It is crucial to make each throw count and increase your chances of catching Reshiram. By battling with friends and defeating Reshiram more quickly, you can earn extra Premier Balls.
During the encounter, aim to throw the PokÃ© Ball when the target ring is small, preferably scoring Excellent Throws. Mastering Curveballs can further enhance your capture odds. However, it’s important to gauge your abilities accurately. If reliably making Excellent Curveball Throws seems challenging, aim for Nice Throws or Great Throws instead to ensure a successful catch.
It is worth noting that Reshiram will not remain stationary, making it essential to time your throws carefully. Observe its movement pattern and take advantage of the pauses between cycles. During these moments, wait for the target ring to reappear and throw the PokÃ© Ball as it starts to shrink. This will increase your chance of landing a Great Throw or an Excellent Throw.
To increase your chances of catching Reshiram, utilizing berries can be advantageous. A Razz Berry can make capturing Reshiram easier, while a Golden Razz Berry significantly improves your odds. If you find yourself struggling to hit Reshiram with your throws, consider using a Nanab Berry to calm its movements, making it more predictable and allowing for more accurate throws. Lastly, if you need extra Reshiram Candy, using a Silver Pinap Berry will ease the capturing process and reward you with additional Candy.
Unlocking Reshiram’s Full Potential
Once you have successfully captured Reshiram, you can maximize its performance by considering its CP range and available attacks. Reshiram’s Initial CP Range falls between 2,217 and 2,307 but can reach a higher range of 2,771 to 2,884 with Weather Boost. Reshiram possesses the Fast Attacks Dragon Breath (Dragon) and Fire Fang (Fire). It can execute various Charged Attacks, including Crunch (Dark), Draco Meteor (Dragon), Fusion Flare (Fire), Overheat (Fire), and Stone Edge (Rock
