Pokémon Go Uxie counters: How to defeat the raid boss

Find the best Pokémon to deal with Uxie’s 5-Star Raid

Uxie is one of the Pokémon Go 5-Star Raid Bosses as well as a member of the Lake Guardians, a group of Legendary Pokémon. In the mobile game, Uxie is a so-called regional Pokémon as it’s only available in certain areas of the world – the Asia-Pacific region, in this case. As such, you’ll need to secure an invite to an Uxie raid through a friend, a chat group, or an app, and participate in the battle remotely, if you’re not currently at the correct location.

A Raid Hour featuring Uxie will take place on February 21, 2024, from 6 to 7pm local time and will have the Shiny version of the monster enabled.

Uxie is the Lake Guardian exclusive to the Asia-Pacific region.

Uxie is a Psychic-type Pokémon, so your best weapons against it are attacks of the types Ghost, Dark, and Bug. Overall, this raid shouldn’t prove to be a massive challenge, even with the remote damage penalty.

You can find the best Pokémon Go Uxie counters below to make things even simpler.
