We've compiled a simple guide on how to take down Uxie as a Raid boss in Pokemon GO.

Uxie, Azelf, and Mesprit—the Lake Guardian trio from the Sinnoh region—taken the reins of five-star Raids from Lugia from now until Oct. 1. Each of the trio has its own real-world region it will occupy and will only appear as a boss within that region.

Trainers will only be able to encounter Uxie in the Asia-Pacific region.

Pokemon GO Uxie Raid Guide

Uxie, as a pure psychic-type, has vulnerabilities to bug, ghost, and dark-type attacks while bearing resistances to fighting and fellow psychic-types. Therefore, the best Raid counter choices for this Pokemon are:

  • Gengar (Lick + Shadow Ball)
  • Chandelure (Hex + Shadow Ball)
  • Darkrai (Snarl + Shadow Ball)
  • Weavile (Feint + Foul Play)
  • Genesect (Fury Cutter + X-Scissor)
  • Volcarona (Bug Bite + Bug Buzz)

Honorable mentions for a Raid team include Absol, Origin Form Giratina, and Houndoom.

As a Raid boss, Uxie can have a CP ceiling of 35,356. Its best moveset contains the quick move Confusion and charged move Future Sight.

Uxie is known as the Pokemon of Knowledge and "gave humans the intelligence to improve their quality of life." Its PokeDex number is 480. Trainers will likely remember Uxie from its role as the Guardian of Lake Acuity in the Sinnoh region.
