How To Defeat Raihan In Finals?

Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon Sword and Shield
Last Updated:

After defeating Marnie & Hop in the Semi-Finals, retrieving Leon from Rose Tower, and defeating Bede one more time, you will finally proceed to the Champion Cup Finals. In order to reach and challenge Leon for The Galar Region Champion, you must defeat three Gym Leaders in a tournament of battles. Your third Finals Opponent will be Raihan, who continues to specialize in using Dragon Type Pokemon. In this battle, he will use fix different Pokemon, four of which will be fully or part Dragon Types. Because of this, Raihan is especially weak against Ice & Ground (for his Fire & Steel Types) Type Pokemon & Attacks.

Additionally, all of Raihan's Pokemon will either be at Level 53, Level 54 or Level 55. Due to this, it would be wise to have all of your Pokemon at Level 55 or higher. The more experienced your Pokemon are, the easier it will be to defeat Raihan. And finally, Raihan will Gigantamax his final Pokemon, which just so happens will be Duraludon. Because of this, it would be especially wise to wait to use your Dynamax until he sends out Duraludon. Also, it would be smart if the Pokemon you Dynamax is either a Ground Type or Fighting Type, since Raihan's Duraludon will be extremely weak to both of those type of attacks.
