Like with Mega Energy, you will need to collect the Primal Energy for Groudon to perform a Primal Reversion. It will cost your 400 Primal Energy to conduct Primal Reversion on Groudon for the first time. But in order to do that though you must first catch a defeat and catch a Primal Groudon. Primal Groudon is a Ground and Fire type Primal Raid boss. The Best Primal Groudon raid counters include powerful Ground and Water types.

Before conquering a Primal Raid Monster, you must be as prepared as possible since not only are they difficult to defeat, but the faster you destroy them, the more Primal Energy you will receive. Based on your levels and countermeasures, we propose 10+ high-level trainers, and more if you don’t have ideal teams. When facing this raid in Pokémon Go, gather your allies in person or via remote raid passes, put together your best team, and make sure to bring the best Primal Groudon counters.

Since 1995, I have had an inseparable relationship with mobile games. More recently, my goal has been to bridge the gap between skill and critical thinking in video games. You don't have to be the best all the time to be the best. I'm here to prove it! I like competitive and casual, mobile and console and everything in between. World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Call of Duty and Apex are my current favorite games. Oh, did I mention that I love LEGO Star Wars games!
