by Shaun Cichacki


You’ll be hoping to see this gator later in Pokemon GO, and thanks to the newest event, you’ll be able to do just that! Finding a Feraligatr was quite the feat before, but now thanks to the newest Three Star Raids in the 2022 Water Festival event that starts soon, you’ll be able to get your hands on one. But, not without a fight.

This gumption-filled gator is more than capable of wiping your whole team out without even blinking an eye. You’ll need to bring a pretty hefty team along with you for this one, so let’s get into the best options to make sure you emerge victoriously!

Best Raid Tactics for Feraligatr in Pokemon GO


Much like Mega Blastoise, you’ll find yourself up against another straight Water-type Pokemon when you square up against Feraligatr. Thankfully, while he won’t be as hard to take down as the aforementioned Mega Blastoise, he may still offer up a fair amount of challenge to you and your team if you’re looking to bring one home.

Feraligatr Strengths and Weaknesses

Strong Against – Takes 63% Damage

  • Steel
  • Fire
  • Water
  • Ice

Weak Against – Takes 160% Damage

  • Grass
  • Electric

Since Water-type Pokemon only have two main weaknesses, you’ll be able to focus your team around those specific types of Pokemon. Thankfully, there are plenty of those types around in the world, so you’ll be able to get out and get your hands on a few of them quickly and fairly easily. If you’re finding it hard to get more Pokemon, something like the Pokemon Go Plus or an Auto Catcher could help you on your Pokemon GO journey, as they help you spin PokeStops for items, and catch Pokemon for you.

Pokemon Fast Attack Charged Attack
Raikou Volt Switch Wild Charge
Tapu Bulu Bullet Seed Grass Knot
Tapu Koko Volt Switch Thunderbolt
Lurantis Razor Leaf Leaf Blade
Meganium Vine Whip Frenzy Plant
Decidueye Razor Leaf Energy Ball

Bringing any of those six Pokemon along with you on this wild ride will help ensure that you emerge victoriously against this feisty foe. Since most Grass and Electric-type Pokemon are strong against Water-types, you’ll be able to endure their attacks, while inflicting some heavy damage of your own. Keep at it, and bring some friends along for the ride to make sure that this is one of the smoothest raids you can come across during this Festival.

Pokemon GO is available now on mobile devices.
