Attention shiny hunters! The raids are really paying off this time when it comes to finding dazzling Pokémon, because, among other things, you can currently grab a Shiny Girafarig if you’re lucky. If you haven’t caught the giraffe-like Pokémon yet, you’ll be happy anyway – but maybe you’ll also get a pretty, dazzling find? Up, up, coach! Make your way to Pokémon Go Arenas and raid as hard as you can – or give up your Raid Passes!
Girafarig as a raid boss
Girafarig has two types: Normal and Psycho. So it’s best to pull Pokemon into battle with Bug and Dark-type moves. If you fight in rain or fog, you benefit from the weather and your attackers’ attacks are boosted. If your attacking Pokémon need a damage boost against Girafarig, you should check the weather in the top right of the screen in the Pokémon Go app!
Girafarig is one of the weaker tier 3 raid bosses and only has 14,379 CP. A trainer alone can quickly re-box the pocket monster. However, if you’re just getting started with Pokémon Go, then Tier 3 Raids are still a real challenge. If you want to call Girafarig your own but aren’t strong enough yet, team up with a few other trainers. Below is a list of the best counters against Girafarig.
