Herdier is a three-star Normal-type raid boss. Your best counters are strong Fighting types such as Lucario, Machamp and Conkeldurr. Herdier gets a boost by Half-cloudy weather. Herdier’s perfect CP of raid are:
- 904 CP for a regular encounter (level 20)
- 1130 for a weather-fortified encounter (level 25 in Half-cloudy weather)
As a three-star raid boss, Herdier is easy to play solo for anyone with a decent squad of Fighting-type Pokémon. For lower level trainers who may have less ideal counters, we recommend groups of 2-5.
