by Shaun Cichacki


While Luidicolo looks like a fun-going kind of Pokemon, you’ll find an abnormally strong opponent in the newest Three Star Raid coming your way in Pokemon GO. With two different typings, this partying platypus is not going to go easy on you, so you’ll need to prepare properly if you’re looking to add them to your ever-growing Pokedex.

Thankfully, that’s where we come into play. We are going to go into depth about the best Pokemon to bring along to the fight, as well as the best types of attacks to hit them with. You’ll need all the help you can get, so making sure that you’ve collected enough Pokemon for Candies, as well as items to power up before taking on this fight is key! Let’s get right into it!

Best Raid Tactics for Ludicolo in Pokemon GO


Bringing this Pokemon down is no simple task, due to its typing. Since you’ll be fighting against a Water/Grass-type Pokemon, your normal tactics may not work how you would expect them to. Attacks that would normally bring one of those types in one hit may do little to nothing now, so let’s dig into the details of what makes Ludicolo such a strange Pokemon to fight.

Ludicolo Strengths and Weaknesses

Strong Against – Deals 63% Damage

  • Ground
  • Steel
  • Water – 39% Damage

Weak Against – Does 160% Damage

  • Flying
  • Poison
  • Bug

So, changing up the strategy a little bit when fighting this Pokemon will make sure that you can bring it down easier than ever before. While they still might bring a hefty challenge alongside them, bringing any of these Pokemon to this fight will make things a little less one-sided for you, and your team.

Deoxys (Attack) Poison Jab Zap Cannon

Yvetal Gust Hurricane
Roserade Poison Sludge Bomb
Honchkrow Peck Sky Attack

Once you have your perfect team, you should be able to bring Ludicolo down, with or without the help of your friends. If your team is as strong as ever, you should be able to add one of your very own at the end of the battle. If you’re lucky, you may also encounter a Shiny Luidicolo, making your victory even sweeter than ever. Make sure you’re prepared for this fight by taking on a few of the other Three Star Raids that this event has to offer.
