Articuno takes Double Super Effective damage from ROCK and Super Effective damage from FIRE, STEEL and ELECTRIC type move due to its dual ICE and FLYING type.

The best Pokemon to fight Articuno is Golem with Rock Throw/ Stone Edge moveset.

Catching Articuno

Catching Articuno is more difficult than other Raid Bosses, Articuno’s movements are on the vertical axis and luckily aren’t very fast like Zubats.

You have to hit the body area, not the wings. Best result can be obtained by having patient and throwing right as the attacks are about to finish.

We Would highly recommend using the golden razz as the base catch rate is 2% (With Golden razz, catch rate is 5% + etc bonuses such as curveball)
