Pokemon GO Virizion raid [Full Guide]

Pokemon Go is an iconic mobile game that has quickly taken over the world since its release in 2016. It’s a location-based game that uses your phone’s GPS to track the movements of Pokemon in the real world. You can then capture and battle them using your phone’s camera. While the game is a lot of fun, it also comes with some potential safety risks that parents should be aware of. That was one of the main reasons it was banned in many countries. 

If you’re like most Pokemon GO players, you’ve probably been wondering what raids are all about. A raid is a special event where you and your team of friends (or strangers!) battle against other players to take a gym. Raids happen in select locations for a limited time. When you fight a raid, you and your friends work together to defeat the raid boss, earn valuable rewards, and level up your Pokemon. 

When you participate in a raid, you are given the opportunity to battle up to 10 powerful Pokemon. Each battle lasts about 20 minutes. The most powerful of these 10 Pokemon is a raid boss – the best Pokemon in the raid. Defeating the raid boss will award you with special items like raid passes and exclusive raid rewards. If you defeat the raid boss but don’t manage to capture it at the end of the battle, you can try again a few days later!

There are many different ways to participate in a raid. You can have a team of people, or you can join a raid party. Teaming up with a group of friends makes it easier to complete the raid objectives as a team, but you’ll still need to be able to communicate in order to successfully complete the raid.

Trainers will encounter Virizion, a member of Unova’s Swords of Justice, as one of the first Raid Bosses this month. From December 1, 2022, through December 8, 2022, the Pokemon will appear in Five-Star Raids.

How to defeat Virizion?

First of all, you’ve to know that Virizion is a Grass/Fighting-type. Which makes it an easy opponent with a lot of weaknesses. Having a flying-type Pokemon fighting from your side will make your job a lot easier. Virizion is two times weaker than flying-type Pokemon. And other than flying-type Pokemon, you should go for Psychic, Fire. Fairy, Ice, and Poison-type Pokemon. You should opt for their moves that will help you deal with a good amount of damage. 

Here is the list of Pokemon and their moves that you should use against Virizon: 

  • Pidgeot (Mega) – Gust/Brave Bird
  • Moltres – Wing Attack/Sky Attack
  • Rayquaza – Air Slash/Aerial Ace
  • Yveltal – Gust/Hurricane
  • Honchkrow – Peck/Sky Attack
  • Tornadus – Air Slash/Hurricane
  • Unfezant – Air Slash/Sky Attack
  • Mewtwo – Confusion/Psystrike
  • Tornadus (Therian) – Air Slash/Hurricane
  • Lugia – Extrasensory/Sky Attack
  • Togekiss – Air Slash/Aerial Ace
  • Zapdos – Thunder Shock/Drill Peck
  • Braviary – Air Slash/Brave Bird
  • Staraptor – Wing Attack/Brave Bird
  • Reshiram – Fire Fang/Overheat
  • Yanmega – Wing Attack/Aerial Ace
  • Volcarona – Fire Spin/Hurricane
  • Latios – Zen Headbutt/Psychic

The above-mentioned Pokemon is enough to get the victory. But it is recommended that you should join a raid party. Furthermore, you should go to the raid with 4-5 friends. And it’ll be easier for you all to take him down. Wanna know more about a raid Party or how to join them? Then you’ve come to the right place.  

All about the Raid party

Raid parties make it easier to find players who are also looking for a group to complete raids together. However, you may not communicate with other members in a raid party as often compared to a team setting. Finding someone to join your raid party can be more challenging than finding a teammate. Once you join a raid party, you can increase your chances of finding a group by leaving a post on the official Discord server and the forums. You can also join an official Raid Buddy group in your region to find players looking for teams/raid buddies. Once you have a group, make sure to communicate with each other regularly to coordinate strategy!


This month, in addition to Virizion, Terrakion, Cobalion, and Kyurem will appear in Pokemon GO’s Five-Star Raids. The game is presently accessible for Android and iOS smartphones to play.
