The Legendary Pokemon Virizion will appear in Raid Battles in Pokemon GO from now until January 7, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. PST, according to Niantic.
Once you manage to catch Virizion, you may be wondering what it’s Max CP and stats are. Well look no further. Here’s Virizion’s Max CP and stats in Pokemon GO. Is it worth powering up? Read on to find out.
Max CP at Level 40: 3,022
Lowest CP at Level 40: 2,623
Max CP at Level 20: 1,727
Lowest CP at Level 20: 1,499
Type: Fighting & Grass
Quick Moves: Quick Attack, Zen Headbutt
Charge Moves: Close Combat, Leaf Blade, Stone Edge
Virizion is resistant to dark-, electric-, grass-, ground-, rock- and water-type moves and weak to fairy-, fire-, flying-, ice-, poison- and psychic-type moves. Notably, it has a double weakness to flying-type moves.
Virizion is definitely not worth powering up. In fact, it’s the weakest of the trio of it, Cobalion and Terrakion. Terrakion has a fantastic movepool with excellent stats to back it up. Cobalion has the same lackluster stats as Virizion but at least it has a somewhat decent movepool. Virizion doesn’t even have Quick Move that’s the same type as it. It’s Charge Moves fare better with Leaf Blade being a great move and Stone Edge covering for Virizion’s weaknesses, but without the backbone of the Quick Moves they’re significantly hampered. Add to that a big number of debilitating weaknesses and you have one disappointing Legendary Pokemon.
If you want a strong grass-type Pokemon, then use Roserade with Razor Leaf and Grass Knot. For a strong fighting-type, use Machamp with Counter and Dynamic Punch. If you really want a fighting- and grass-type Pokemon, use Breloom with Counter and Seed Bomb/Grass Knot + Dynamic Punch. Then just leave Virizion behind.
