Suicune

The only Legendary beasty that isn’t definitely inspired by cats, this ribbony deer is most popularly known for its role in “Pokémon 4Ever – where it palled around with Celebi and cleaned up polluted water. It is the bulkiest of it’s trio of legendaries, but has by far the weakest attacking power of them.

Suicune takes 1.6x damage from Grass / Electric .

Suicune can be beaten by 3 players in optimal weather, with max friendship and perfect level 40 counters or by 5 unfriended players using level 20 counters from this guide. When caught, Suicune will be between 1627 and 1704 cp without a weather boost. In Rainy weather, Suicune will be between 2033 and 2130 when caught.

Release Period:

September 2, 2019, at 1 p.m. to September 9, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT

Event Info


Welcome to Week 1 of the 2019 Global Challenge Rewards!

 All 3 of the Beasts (Suicune, Entei, and Raikou) will be featured from September 2, 2019, at 1 p.m. to September 9, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT.

There is no reason to believe they will have increased shiny rates at this time. All 3 of them have already had there shiny forms revealed previously. If they are not given a boost, the shiny rate will be roughly 1/20 chance. If a shiny Legendary Pokemon  is encountered in a raid, it has a 100% catch chance (and thus you can use pinap berries for more candy). Note: rarely glitches occur making it possible to not catch the pokemon even under these circumstances.

This week will be themed on the region of Johto, and will also include:

– 2x Incubator Effectiveness.

– The release of Shiny Sentret and Gligar.

– Unown forms U, L, T, R, A hatching from 10k eggs.

– Other Johto pokemon in Raids.

 

Suicune in the Meta


Raid Attacker – Extrasensory/Hydro Pump

Sadly, Suicune has extremely defensive stats that don’t lend themselves to raiding. It also lacks a STAB fast move (excluding the legacy hidden power water), so it is extremely low on the Water-Type rankings. Suicune is not a good Water-Type attacker.

Gym Combat

Suicune’s Legendary status means its defensive stats also can’t go in gyms, and its role as an attacker is limited as well. Steelix and Hippowdon are functionally the only good gym defenders that are weak to it, and there are far more important Pokemon to counter, and better Pokemon to do so.

Water-Type Rankings  

 

Raid Advice


Moveset Advice

  • Ice Beam – will obliterate the less tanky grass types. More dangerous in some ways because there is only a 1/4 chance of facing it.
  • Bubble Beam – Triple Bar Charge Move.
  • Water Pulse – Double Bar Charge Move.
  • Hydro Pump – Single Bar Charge Move. Hardest in general since it can KO more Pokemon if you don’t dodge, and is capable of offering a threat to Electrics.

General Type Interactions

Suicune takes 1.6x damage fromGrass /Electric Type attacks .

Grass – is Resistant to Water, but Weak to Ice.

Electric – has no relevant Resistances or Weakness.

Player Count Advice

To trio Suicune with best friend bonus, it’s technically possible with level 25 pokemon. Raikou, Zapdos, Electivire and Magnezone all work good.. but you will have to rejoin and it will be tough. Bubble Beam is the moveset you are hoping for to get through it.

Roserade also does great, but only if you are sure you are not fighting Ice Beam. The Exception is Sunny Weather, where Roserade becomes the best option even if both of Suicune’s Moves are hitting it super effectively!

Weather Advice

  • ⚔️ Raw Damage: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • 🛡️ Survival/Bulk: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • 📉 Consistency: ⭐⭐⭐⭐☆
  • 🌐 Accessibility: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Best Moveset:Thunder Shock /Wild Charge

  • 🛡️ Survival/Bulk: ⭐⭐⭐⭐☆

  • 📉 Consistency: ⭐⭐⭐⭐☆

  • 🌐 Accessibility: ⭐⭐⭐☆☆

Roserade evolves from Roselia, a very accessible pokemon in the most common biomes.

Best Moveset:Spark /Wild Charge

Luxray evolves from Shinx, which is a raid exclusive Pokemon; and always acquired at level 20 (or 25 if caught during rain). This makes it quite the pain to evolve. Even if you pinap every Shinx, it will still take 17 raids just to get enough base candy to Evolve it.  Shinx raids have become a staple however and are pretty reliably around, and are Tier 1 raids that anyone can do. Shinx as a Buddy finds a candy every 5km, which is better than legendary Pokemon but still not great.

With Level 35 Luxray, you need 4 players.

Closing Thoughts


Suicune is by far the least competitively useful of the trio, and it really isn’t viable as an attacker when cheaper Pokemon like Vaporeon do several times better. It does however have an absolutely stunning Shiny form.

It remains the hardest of the trio to defeat however, so be sure to come prepared!
