Walking Wake and Iron Leaves Tera Raid Strategies

Walking Wake is a Water/Dragon Type, so it’s best to use Fairy or Grass Types against it.

So how do you take these Pokémon down?

Walking Wake is a Water/Dragon Type, meaning it's weak to Grass and Fairy Types. With this in mind, we recommend having Azumarill in your party for maximum effectiveness. Just spam Belly Drum to boost attack power and then use Play Rough to deal Fairy-type damage. You can also utilize other Dragon Types, as well as Ice and Electric Types to take down Walking Wake with ease.

As for Iron Leaves, this is a Grass/Psychic Type, which is weak to Fire and Dark Types. Pokémon such as Houndoom work well, but Iron Leaves is also weak to Ghost and Bug Types like Lokix, Sableye, and Spiritomb, to name a few. Use these Types to make your battle against Iron Leaves go more smoothly.
