As previously mentioned, Zekrom is both a Dragon-type and an Electric-type Pokemon. This new raid is a formidable one to go against. So, you will need at least three people to take down this raid. Four would be safer but of course, any more will be better as well.

You also need to bring the right Pokemon for the job. Ground-type and Dragon-type Pokemon will do the trick. Arguably, the best Pokemon to bring is Dialga. It resists just about everything that Zekrom could throw at you and with its Steel-typing, it will not be weak to Dragon moves.

Dialga is not the only Pokemon you should bring. Therian Forme Landorus, Mamoswine, Groudon, and Rayquaza are all great choices here. Just make sure that they have powerful moves that target the weaknesses of Zekrom.

Once you have beaten Zekrom, you will want the best one you can possibly get. A Zekrom with 100% IV will have a CP of 2307. If your Zekrom has this much CP, you are in luck. You should also be on the lookout for certain moves to make sure that your Zekrom is the best of the best.

A Zekrom with the quick move Charge Beam and the charge move Fusion Bolt is the best moveset for Zekrom. Just remember that you can only get a Zekrom with Fusion Bolt during this time period of raids. So if you want the best Zekrom possible, you need to catch one soon. If you want dragon moves for Zekrom, the quick move Dragon Breath and the charge move Outrage are the way to go.
