Some fan-favorite Legendary characters are returning to Raids in Pokémon GO. Along with Registeel comes Cresselia, the Legendary Psychic Type of Gen 4. This beautifully crafted character will appear in Raids starting tomorrow, March 10 at 8am local time. To be ready, you need to have a strong team of counters at your disposal. And with so many new creatures to choose from, your old team probably isn't the best anymore. To help you out, here's how to beat Cresselia with the best tokens in Pokémon GO.

How to Beat Cresselia

First, let's talk about the technicalities of beating Cresselia. Since they're Psychic-type, you'll want a strong team of Bug, Ghost, and Dark Pokemon, with the right attack moves to deal those heavy damage. With her low defense, you can actually beat Cresselia with just two total trainers, but that's only if you're at level 40 with highly optimized Pokemon and the right time. In most situations, you should have four or more trainers ready to take Cresselia. Speaking of weather, this legendary enemy will be boosted by the wind, increasing its capture CP from 1555-1633 up to between 1944-2041 CP. But if you have solid chips that shouldn't be a problem, then here are the best chips against Cresselia in Pokémon GO.

Best counters against Cresselia

Here are the Pokemon you'll want on your team, with the optimal moveset against Cresselia.

Origin Giratina Form with Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball
Mewtwo with Confusion and Shadow Ball
Gengar with Lick or Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball
Tyranitar with bite and crunch
Dimoret with Feint Attack and Foul Play

If you don't have any, you can use your bug types such as Scarabrute and Scizor, or other ghost and dark Pokemon. But with a team like this and a few other trainers, you'll know how to beat Cresselia with the best counters in Pokémon GO.
