Shadow BallThe user attacks by hurling a shadowy blob at the target. This may also lower the target’s Sp. Def stat.
Sunny DayThe user intensifies the sun for five turns, powering up Fire-type attacks. The sunlight also lowers the power of Water-type attacks.

The Tera Raid Typhlosion offers some interesting coverage issues. The Pokemon deals Fire, Fairy, Ground, and Ghost type damage. To counter this you need to find a Pokemon build that can survive these types of damage while also dealing damage against Typhlosion.

Best Pokemon to Use Against Typhlosion

Solo: This raid can be solo’ed using Annihilape. It’s not pretty, but it can be done. The video above shows the basic approach. Ensure your Annihilape is Level 100, is Tera Type Ghost, and has EVs in HP and Attack. Once you’ve done that the approach is fairly simple:

T1-2: Screech.

T3+: Rage Fist.

After you’ve screeched you simply spam Rage Fists. Continue to spam Rage Fist until you reach Terrastilize phase. Terra and then spam Rage Fist until the Typhlosion dies. You should be able to take down Typhlosion in a race to the death. Given the solo nature of raiding you can faint multiple times and still complete the fight. Ensure you have a Shell Bell equipped to give you some survivability.
