Wondering what the stats and max CP are for Legendaries Articuno and Lugia? Here is information that will be helpful to you.
Here are the max CP stats for an Articuno that you might catch after a Legendary Raid battle, according to stats gathered by Redditor DontheFirst:
- Max CP at Level 20: 1676
- Max CP at Level 30: 2514
- Max CP at Level 39: 2891
- Max CP: 2933, Attack 192, Defense 249, Stamina 180, DEF x STA 44820
As some trainers are learning, Articuno can be a great ice Pokémon and could be valuable for certain raids. But as Redditor saqwedcxz noted, only a few of the Tier 3+ Raid Bosses are weak to ice, and even for those ice isn’t the most efficient counter. The raid bosses weak to ice are Venusaur, Rhydon. Zapdos, and Lugia.
Articuno’s CP is the highest of all Ice Pokémon.
Here are the max CP stats for a Lugia that you might catch after a Legendary Raid battle, according to stats gathered by Redditor DontheFirst:
- Max CP at Level 20: 2056
- Max CP at Level 30: 3084
- Max CP at Level 39: 3547
- Maximum CP: 3598, Attack 193, Defense 323, Stamina 212, DEF x STA 68476.
Interestingly, trainers have discovered that the Lugias given to people who attended Pokémon GO Fest in Chicago are not perfect Level 20s, but are Level 19.5.
Some trainers believe that powering Lugia up is definitely worthwhile. One trainer, Redditor akodoreign, noted that after powering Lugia up to 3006 and teaching him two psychic moves, Lugia is a great choice in a Machamp raid. Some trainers say that a perfect moveset for Lugia is Extrasensory and Future Sight, but others like Sky Attack better than Future Sight. Redditor waldo56, for example, believes that Sky Attack is better because it has a higher weave DPS, is quicker, and has more flexibility.
Redditor saqwedcxz noted that Lugia’s biggest issue is lack of DPS, since many trainers like high DPS attackers. “Probably the best way to use Lugia is if you want to go through a full level 6 gym without switching Pokémon. But it will be slower than using high DPS or type advantaged attackers.”
Lugia has the second highest CP of all obtainable Pokémon, second only behind Tyranitar.
