Quagsire is a tier-three raid boss in Pokémon GO that can be defeated for a chance to capture it. Although there is a Shiny version of Quagsire, the current raid boss won’t appear as a Shiny Pokémon after it’s defeated. To participate in a raid, players will need a Raid Pass, or a Remote Raid Pass to join one that’s not within walking distance. Raid Passes are awarded for certain Research Tasks and can be found in the items shop. Some free boxes also contain Raid Passes in Pokémon GO.
Tier-three raid bosses like Quagsire may require additional trainers to defeat. It’s possible for players to win the raid alone, but defeating Quagsire quickly will award more Premier Balls to capture it. It’s recommended that players invite at least two other trainers to the raid. Only friends can be invited in Pokémon GO, so they will need to be added before the Quagsrire raid is started.
As a tier-three raid boss in Pokémon GO, Quagsire usually appears with a CP over 14,000 unless there’s an active rainy or sunny weather boost. The Quagsire that can be caught after will have a CP between 1,075 and 1,138. The health, attack, and defense stats can be viewed after the Pokémon is caught by using the appraise option. Appraising Quagsire will also reveal its rating as a one, two, or three-star Pokémon.
As a Ground- and Water-type Pokémon, Quagsire is only weak against Grass-type moves. The best team to use will depend on what moves a player’s Pokémon knows. Moves can be changed using Fast TMs and Charged TMs, but the result will be a random move from a pool of available attacks. To choose which move a Pokémon will learn, players will need Elite TMs. Different types of TMs can be obtained by spinning PokéStops, winning raids, and completing Research Tasks in Pokémon GO.
After Quagsire is defeated, players will have the opportunity to catch it. A Razz Berry or Golden Razz Berry can be used to increase the chances of capturing Quagsire. Alternatively, players can use a Pinap Berry or Golden Pinap Berry to get more candies from catching Quagsire. Candies can be used to power up Quagsire for league battles or other fights. Quagsire is one of many tier-three raid bosses in Pokémon GO.
