Unova Legend – Cobalion – Comes to Play

We have some unexpected and exciting news for you, Trainers! The first Unova Legendary to hit Pokemon GO becomes available in Raids in just a few days! From November 4th 1:00pm local time, till November 26th, 1:00pm you will find Cobalion in tier 5 Raids.

Let’s learn a little about this Pokemon, shall we?

Spotlight on Cobalion

This Pokemon is a part of a set of four. Along with Terrakion, Virizion and Keldeo it makes up a team loosely based on the Three Musketeers. The group is referred to as The Swords of Justice. Cobalion represents Athos, the elder Musketeer, who is not only skilled and noble… But a sad figure as well. Aw.

The Pokedex tells us that this Pokemon has a body and heart of steel along with a will of iron. It, along with its fellows, will attack people who hurt Pokemon. Right On! It has a steely glare and this is enough to force obedience in even the most unruly Pokemon.

So, how does this Pokemon’s iron will and cold gaze factor into Pokemon GO?

Max CP of 3022, 192 Attack, 229 Defense and 209 Stamina. Being a Steel type as well as Fighting, it’s no wonder this Pokemon is a little on the bulky side. This dual typing means it’s weak to Fire, Ground and Fighting. It resists a massive number of types, with double resistances to Rock, Poison and Bug. It has standard resistances to Normal, Grass, Ice, Dark, Dragon and Steel. As an attacker, it’s outdone by both Machamp (Max CP of 3056, 234 Attack, 159 Defense and 207 Stamina) and Metagross (Max CP of 3791, 257 Attack, 228 Defense, 190 Stamina) in their respective types. It’s resistances do add to its appeal, at least.

Fast Attacks are Metal Claw (STAB) and Zen Headbutt. For Charge Attacks, you have Iron Head and Close Combat for STAB and Stone Edge.

Raiding against this Pokemon your best choices will be powerful Fire, Fighting and Ground types with STAB moves. So Groudon, Moltres, Arcanine, Magmortar, Machamp, Hariyama and Rhyperior.

Good luck challenging this Sword of Justice, Trainers! I hope you can catch one of your own.
