Learn which Pokemon are most successful against Kyurem in Raid Battles, how to catch Kyurem after a Raid Battle, and how to best employ the Boundary Pokemon after you’ve caught it.

How to Beat Kyurem: Which Pokemon to use

Kyurem is a Dragon-type and an Ice-type Pokemon, making it weak to Fighting, Rock, Dragon, Steel, and Fairy attacks. Choose six Pokemon with Fast Attack and Charged Attack from the Fighting, Rock, Dragon, Steel, and Fairy types to do the most damage in the Kyurem Raid Battle.

If a Pokemon has the same type as these attacks, its attacks will do 20% more damage due to the same-type bonus. Kyurem has weak attacks against most Dragon-type Pokemon because of its Dragon-type, so keep this in mind while selecting your Pokemon. Select the Pokemon with the highest CP and the best overall stats if you have multiple Fighting, Rock, Dragon, Steel, and Fairy types. After winning a Raid Battle, you will receive a number of Premier Balls depending on the speed of your victory. So bring your most powerful Pokemon and beat Kyurem as soon as possible.

How to Beat Kyurem: Best Moves

You should teach Reshiram the Fast Attack Fire Fang and the Charged Attack Overheat if you want to take advantage of its fire type, which offers it an edge over insects, grass, steel, and ice Pokemon. To utilize against other dragon Pokemon, you can teach the legendary Pokemon the dragon-type moves Dragon Breath and Draco Meteor. Keep a mind, though, that if the opposing Pokemon also knows dragon attacks, it will receive super-effective damage in return.

How to Beat Kyurem: Premier Balls

Pokemon Go (Image credit: Ninatic)

You’ll only have a limited amount of Premier Balls to catch Kyurem after a successful Kyurem raid, so use them wisely. By competing with friends and defeating Kyurem faster, you may win more Premier Balls.

When fighting Kyurem, you have the best chance of catching it if the target ring is small enough for you to earn Excellent Throws. Curveballs can help you increase your odds even more. However, work within your capabilities; if you don’t believe you can consistently execute Excellent Curveball Throws, strive for Nice or Great Throws instead of entirely missing the target ring.

Kyurem isn’t going to make it easy for you by remaining still while you try to catch it. Throwing when the Premier Ball is going about is a waste of Premier Balls. Watch Kyurem to gain a sense of its movement cycle and the pauses between cycles. Wait for the target ring to resurface during one of these pauses, then throw as it begins to shrink to boost your chances of making a Great or Excellent Throw.

How to Beat Kyurem: Berry

Berries can aid in the capture of Kyurem. Kyurem will be easy to capture with a Razz Berry, and a Golden Razz Berry will be even easier. If you’re having trouble landing throws, a Nanab Berry can calm Kyurem and make its motions less chaotic, letting you make more precise throws. If you need more Kyurem Candy, utilizing a Silver Pinap Berry will make it simpler to catch Kyurem and give you more Candy after you do.

The Catch Assist Perk is available to Buddy Pokémon with a Buddy Level of Great Buddy or above. If a Pokémon, even a Legendary Pokémon, deflects a Poké Ball, your Buddy may be able to bounce it back for another chance to catch it! Kyurem, like other Legendary Pokémon, is difficult to catch, so don’t give up if it escapes. Try again after loading up on useful things such as Max Potions, Max Revives, and Golden Razz Berries.

What to do with Kyurem?

Pokémon of the Dragon- and Ice-types have a type advantage over Pokémon of the Water-, Grass-, and Electric types. Kyurem is therefore useful against many Raid Bosses, such as Palkia, Reshiram, and Zekrom. Kyurem’s Dragon-type Fast and Charged Attacks, which are often used against Raid Bosses, will benefit from a same-type attack bonus, which makes them more effective. 

CP should be increased, and a second Charged Attack should be taught to Kyurem before bringing it into raid battles. Kyurem’s CP will reach its maximum with a lot of Stardust and Kyurem Candy, so don’t forget the Pinap Berries if you want to get there faster.
