          About the results

          Our guide provides detailed information on recommended Pokémon and moves that are most effective against Tropius in Raid Battles. Whether you're looking for the best counters to take Tropius down quickly with high DPS, or the tankiest counters that can withstand its attacks, our guide has something for every trainer.

          The top-ranked Tropius counter is Mega Rayquaza, followed by Shadow Mamoswine, Shadow Weavile, and Baxcalibur. The table also includes Galarian Standard Darmanitan, Mega Glalie, Shadow Mewtwo, and Mamoswine, among others. Each Pokemon's move type is indicated by an icon beside the move name.

          Tropius type chart

          When fighting Tropius, keep in mind the following that Grass and Flying-type Pokémon are weak to Ice, Fire, Flying, Poison, and Rock type moves. They take reduced damage from Fighting, Water, Grass, and Ground type moves.


          Type chart shows the percentage (%) of damage taken from an incoming attack of a particular type.

          About our ranking methodology

          When calculating the best counters for any Pokémon, our simulator takes into account various factors, such as the defender's typing and average DPS against each attacker, the weather's influence, energy left over from using charge moves, Shadow Pokémon attack and defense stat changes, and more. During the initial phase of simulations, we calculate DPS and TDO for each attacker that is currently available in the game, and then we continue to rank them.

          We use a ranking method developed by a Reddit user named /u/Elastic_Space, which is described in detail in this Reddit post. It is a fairly complicated, but very well thought-out mathematical model for predicting simulation results without actually running the simulations. It also correlates with field data almost too well not to be used.

          Our Time to Win (TTW) and Faint numbers are also estimated, and should be taken with a grain of salt. Since we do not account for factors like Friendship and Mega damage boost, they will differ from actual experience in the field.
