Kartana Raid Guide: Best Counters and Tips for Pokémon GO’s Adventures Abound

A new season has begun in Pokémon GO, called Adventures Abound, and it's packed with exciting content for trainers to enjoy. As part of this season, Kartana, an Ultra Beast, has returned to Tier Five Raids. In this raid guide, we will provide you with the best counters and tips to defeat Kartana efficiently.

Pokebattler, a tool that calculates the best Pokémon and movesets, suggests the top ten counters for Kartana:

  1. Mega Charizard Y: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  2. Mega Blaziken: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  3. Reshiram: Fire Fang, Fusion Flare
  4. Apex Shadow Ho-Oh: Incinerate, Sacred Fire+
  5. Shadow Entei: Fire Fang, Overheat
  6. Shadow Moltres: Fire Spin, Overheat
  7. Mega Charizard X: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  8. Shadow Charizard: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  9. Shadow Blaziken: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  10. Heatran: Fire Spin, Magma Storm

While it is recommended to power up your counters as much as possible, creating a team of strong Shadow Pokémon with unlocked moves can be challenging. Here are ten additional non-Shadow and non-Mega counters that can help you defeat Kartana:

  • Apex Purified Ho-Oh: Incinerate, Sacred Fire+
  • Volcarona: Fire Spin, Overheat
  • Darmanitan: Fire Fang, Overheat
  • Moltres: Fire Spin, Overheat
  • Entei: Fire Fang, Overheat
  • Chandelure: Fire Spin, Overheat
  • Blaziken: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  • Delphox: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  • Charizard: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  • Emboar: Ember, Blast Burn

To defeat Kartana with efficiency, it is recommended to have at least four players in the raid. However, it is possible to defeat Kartana with just two trainers by utilizing the double weakness it has to Fire-type moves. Make sure to use the Circle Lock Technique and Golden Razz Berries to increase your chances of catching Kartana.

Currently, Kartana cannot be found in its Shiny form. If you're looking for a Pokémon with excellent stats, a 100% IV Kartana will have a CP of 2101 in normal weather conditions and 2626 in boosted conditions.

Get ready, trainers! It's time to take on Kartana in Pokémon GO's Adventures Abound. Stay tuned to Bleeding Cool for more daily updates on all things Pokémon GO.
