For this raid, Kleavor will be set to a three-star raid. Three-stars are typically tricky, but any player who has reached above level 30 Trainer, with an ideal team against Kleavor, should be able to take it out. However, taking a friend or two is never a bad idea to ensure you can defeat Kleavor, given the short amount of time you have to clear these raids.

Best Kleavor Pokémon Raid Counters in Pokémon Go

Kleavor is a Bug and Rock-type species of Pokémon in Pokémon Go. It is weak against Rock, Steel, and Water-type moves and is resistant against Normal and Poison-type attacks. We highly recommend relying on Water or Steel-type moves to defeat it properly, using Pokémon such as Metagross, Steelix, Excadrill, Cobalion, Scizor, or Swampert.
