With a Mega Evolved Gen III making a surprise revisit, here's why Pokemon GO trainers should already be excited for August 2024

You can defeat Vivakolt in Pokemon GO 3-star raids with Fire and Rock-type counters. These counters are perfect for exploiting its type weaknesses. They have the power to inflict 160% damage on the boss. Moreover, if you use Fire and Rock-type moves for them, then they can also benefit from the Same Type Attack Bonus (STAB) effect.

This effect further increases the total damage output of Fire and Rock-type moves by 1.2x. Plus, when Mega and Shadow Pokemon are preferred, especially Legendaries, Mythicals, and Ultra Beasts, then beating Vikavolt in 3-star raids solo is possible. In fact, the time you are given to complete the raid is three minutes.

Pokemon like Mega Charizard and Mega Blaziken can defeat Vikavolt in raids in less than 95 seconds. Not only these counters but there are a lot more that can tackle the 3-star raid boss. Remember, your forces will face a ruthless Vikavolt with an Attack stat of 254 and a Defense stat of 158. It will use eight different Fast and Charged Moves to attack your teammates.
