Thoughts on Genesect Douse Drive

Genesect Douse Drive is one of the easier 5* raids you can do. For maxed out trainers with maxed out teams it is soloable. Traniers not quite that strong will be able to comfortably do it in teams of 2-4

Its High attack stat is useful although Genesect Douse Drive falls behind other Pokemon it would compete with. Fury cutter (fast move) combined with Z-Scissor (Charge move) and Techno Blast (Charge move) would be its best move combination

As it’s a Mythical Pokemon, to give it a second charge move costs 100 candies and 100,000 Stardust. It requires 20KM as a buddy to earn a candy walking.
