Typhlosion is the protagonist of the new 7 Star Raid from Pokemon Scarlet and Purple. Through these events, the Pokédex of the Switch game is expanded with Pokemon that cannot be obtained in any other way in Paldea… and only for a limited time.
This time it is the turn of the final evolution of Cyndaquilthe starting fire type of the third generation, Ruby and Sapphire.
By egg breeding (thanks to Ditto) it’s even possible to get a Typhlosion egg that spawns a Cyndaquil and a Quilava and add it to the Pokédex… but for that you’ll have to beat the 7-star Teraid, and it’s not easy. Good thing you have help!
Typhlosion 7 Star Raid Dates
This theraincursion takes place over two weekends. If you don’t get it the first weekend, you will have another second chance two weeks later to train your Pokemon and achieve it.
Take note of the dates and times of the Typhlosion event, on schedule CET (Spanish peninsular time):
- From Friday 14 of April at 01:00, to Monday 17 of April at 00:59
- From Friday 21 of April at 01:00, to Monday 24 of April at 00:59
Will Cyndaquil be one of the returning Pokemon in the Treasure of Area Zero DLC coming out later this year? Just in case, take the opportunity to get its final evolution now!
Tricks to Defeat Typhlosion
Typhlosion will be of Teratipo Fantasmabut in the first part of the fight it will use attacks type Fuego. In addition, it has the ability Absorb Fire, which means that if you attack it with fire moves you will empower its Fire attacks.
Fortunately one of the best counters to Typhlosion is a Pokemon that you can easily find in the game: Dachsbun.
Their ability baked body makes him immune to fire-type attacks, and increases his defense whenever he is hit by fire attacks, such as Burst empowered by Sunny Day.
That Typhlosion has a phantom teratype means that, when it Teracrystallizes, it will be weak against Ghost and Dark typesso you should balance your team with one of this type.
Another one that also has the ability Absorb Fire is Ceruledge. Other Pokemon that will be resistant to Fire and Ghost moves is Houndoomwhile Annihilapewith the move Fury Punch, will increase the damage it deals after each hit.
Finally, Chi-Yu is another option that is proving very effective in the community by combining Scream and Shadow Pulse with Light Screen and Scheme.
