As is with every Pokémon game, players are tasked with searching for Pokémon to capture and collect, using them to battle other Pokémon, be it against the AI or against other players. The difference with Pokémon GO is that it utilizes the player’s phone GPS to find and capture Pokémon!

The game has been expanding its roster since its humble release with the original 151 Pokémon all the way to modern times. Pokémon got so popular that the original roster kept expanding till we got to eight whole generations of Pokémon!

Today we will be talking about one of the most recognizable Pokemon from Generation 4, namely Honchkrow.


Honchkrow is a Dark/Flying-type Pokemon that was initially introduced in the Gen 4 games of Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum as the evolution of the Gen 2 Pokemon, Murkrow. Its great typing and stats made it a very popular Pokemon in Pokemon GO as well.

Honchkrow is a highly accessible glass cannon with two notable attacking sets. Its Dark-type DPS is surprisingly solid given how common its pre-evolution tends to be, while its Flying-type performance is just outstanding, making it a top attacker when Flying is the best type to use.

Honchkrow is also a handy budget option to fill raid team gaps.

As with any Pokemon, along with strengths also come weaknesses, and Honchkrow is no exception. Being the Dark/Flying-type, Honchkrow has its fair share of them, such as:

  • Fairy (Dark weakness)
  • Ice (Flying weakness)
  • Rock (Flying weakness)
  • Electric (Flying weakness)
