Cacturne is one of several raid Pokémon you can fight in Pokémon Go during Luminous Legends Y. This Pokémon will be a three-star battle, so you can expect to be able to do it yourself with the right team, and if you’re at level 30 or 35. If you’re lower than this level, we recommend taking a Pokémon friend with you. Cacturne are two different types, so you’ll need to make sure that when choosing the best Pokémon to fight it, you need to consider all of its weaknesses.
All the weaknesses of Cacturne
Cacturne is a dark and grassy Pokémon. It will be weak against Bug, Fairy, Fighting, Fire, Flying, Ice and Poison moves, giving you a variety of options to choose from. It is resistant to attacks such as Psychic, Dark, Electric, Ghost, Grass, Ground and Water. The best weakness you will take advantage of is the choice of the Bug type.
The best Pokémon facing Cacturne
The best Pokémon you can use against Cactune will be Mega Beedril, Genesect or Escavalier.
Mega Beedrill is a Bug and Poison Pokémon. Because it is a mega Pokémon, it provides support to all Pokémon fighting on its side during battle, and is probably a better choice you can use when fighting alongside allies. However, it can have enormous support for its mega-attacks, making it an ideal choice for destroying Cacturne’s defenses. The best set for teaching Mega Beedrill is an insect bite for its fast movement and x-scissor and a fall for its charged movements.
Another Pokémon we recommend is Genesect, the legendary Bug and Steel Pokémon. While Genesect is a rare Pokémon, it is a good choice for this battle if you have it in your collection. Since it was a steel type, it was to add a defense to make Cacturne harder to reliably damage against it. The best Genesect movement set can use a fast-moving rage knife and a charged x-scissor and magnetic bomb.
The last Pokémon we recommend for this battle will be Escavalier, another Bug and Steel Pokémon. Like Genesect, Escavalier is weak only for Fire-type damage, so he is the perfect adversary of Cacturne and can withstand most of his attacks. It has a higher defense because it is a steel type, with several effective attacks using Cacturne weaknesses. The best set of moves that Escavalier can learn is to bite bugs with fast movement and a charged megahorn move and run exercise.
You will need a full team of six Pokémon to take you against the Cacturne on the battlefield. These are other recommendations we have for this battle.
- Mega Charizard
- Mega Gengar
After defeating Cacturne, you will have a chance to capture him after the raid and you will receive several rewards for your problems.
