Known in the Pokedex as the Flower Pokemon, Bellossom was introduced in Pokemon's second generation and is currently listed as a 3-star Raid boss in Pokemon GO.

With the right team and moves, Bellossom should be a relatively easy Raid boss at its current state in Pokemon GO. It can even be defeated solo if those well-equipped counter Pokemon are powered up with candies sufficiently.

If trainers key in on Bellossom's weaknesses, then defeating it will be an even more straightforward task. It should allow for a significant amount of extra time left over on the Raid clock to maximize the Premier Balls that a player receives as a reward.

Since Bellossom's maximum CP and stats as a Raid boss in Pokemon GO aren't particularly impressive, it shouldn't take much to defeat, especially if trainers take advantage of its type weaknesses. These weaknesses include Ice, Fire, Bug, Flying, and Poison-type moves since Bellossom is a Grass-type Pokemon.

If trainers match these moves with their Pokemon's type, they can also receive a Same Type Attack Bonus to increase their damage output more. There are tons of Pokemon that are capable of taking advantage of Bellossom's weaknesses, and some perform the job better than others.

With five total weaknesses in Pokemon and Pokemon GO, finding counter picks for Bellossom shouldn't be tricky at all. Simply playing the game should provide trainers with a variety of Pokemon, some of which ought to be the right types to counter Bellossom.

However, if trainers are hoping to find some great Pokemon to use in raids against Bellossom, they can give the Pokemon below a try to get started or to get a leg up in the Raid battle:

  • Mega Charizard X
  • Mega Charizard Y
  • Mega Houndoom
  • Mega Beedrill
  • Mega Gengar
  • Mega Pidgeot
  • Mega Abomasnow
  • Reshiram
  • Moltres
  • Heatran
  • Darmanitan
  • Chandelure
  • Ho-Oh
  • Tornadus
  • Entei
  • Rayquaza
  • Yveltal
  • Roserade
  • Mamoswine
  • Escavalier
  • Salamence
  • Victini
  • Blaziken
  • Genesect
  • Flareon
