To win a Noibat Raid in Pokemon GO, you will ideally need a team of at least three high-level Pokemon trainers.
Additionally, as it is a Tier 4 Community Day Raid boss, you will have to take part in this Raid by visiting the Gym in person.
As Remote Raid Passes can’t be used, you’ll want to stock up on Raid Passes, and Battle Passes beforehand.
What Type is Noibat?
Noibat is a Dragon/Flying-type Pokemon, giving it four weaknesses but six resistances.
Even if it could prove some trouble to counter it, beating Noibat in a Raid is definitely worth it. This is especially the case considering that shiny Noibat is now available to catch!
Noibat is weak to attacks of the following types in Pokemon GO:
- Ice (Double Weakness)
Dragon, Fairy, and Rock attacks deal 160% damage to Noibat, while Ice attacks deal 256% damage due to its double weakness to this type!
Therefore, to deal the most damage, you will want to use the most powerful Ice-type Pokemon in Pokemon GO when battling in Noibat Raids.
Noibat has six resistances, including two double resistances in Pokemon GO:
- Grass (Double Resistance)
- Ground (Double Resistance)
Grass and Ground-type attacks deal just 39% damage to Noibat, and the other types it resists deal 63% damage.
