Raid Battles

This guide displays a list of best Dhelmise counters in Pokémon GO with their Fast Attacks, Charged Attacks, DPS (damage per second), TDO (total damage output), faints, TTW (time to win), and score. The list is sorted by the score, which is calculated based on the DPS and TDO. Each Pokemon's move type is indicated by an icon beside the move name.

Best Dhelmise Pokémon GO counters are Mega Rayquaza, Mega Y Charizard, Mega Blaziken, Rayquaza, Mega Gengar, Mega Tyranitar, and Shadow Moltres. These Pokémon perform best with the moves outlined below. We suggest a minimum group size of 1 - 3 Trainers to defeat Dhelmise in a 3-Star Raid.

          About our ranking methodology

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

          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 attacks, 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. Reddit

          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.
