  • Rayquaza is a dual-type Pokemon that has the feature of both Dragon and Flying Pokemon types. You can only obtain it from Legendary raids. This attacker is highly likely to lose when fighting against Ice Pokemons, the common weakness of both Dragon and Flying types.
  • Kyogre is the strongest Water-type Pokemon now. Hydro Pump and Surf are the most effective move sets against bosses and rock-type and ground-type defenders. However, this Pokemon would lose to Grass and Electric moves.
