Can you solo a Level 3 raid?
They say no, but I understand you can battle again if you lose, and the boss's HP doesn't go back up. So can't you solo win but it would just take several attempts?
Health goes back up.
The general consensus is you can only solo a level 3 raid IF you have optimal mons and IF the raid mon isn't one of the strongest. For instance, a few people have soloed a Machamp. I don't think anyone has soloed a Vaporeon.
On the other hand, 2 good players should be enough for a level 3 raid. For a level 4 raid you will almost always need 5 or more people.
The trouble with soloing is the timeout.
If you faint before the timeout and reenter quickly, the boss's HP is where it was - but the time will be short too,
Once the timeout hits, the HP resets.
So yeah, I failed soloing Vaporeon yesterday, though I think I was close (less than 25% left with tons of glitches during the fight, so I think I'd have a borderline chance if it was a gym with better network coverage).
Tried to solo an Arcanine this morning : didn't even come close.
Being lvl 29, it was made clear that my attacking squad lacks diversity.
Time for a mass evolve session I guess.
On the second try, with better suited mons, I managed to take it down to half HP though.
So with 1, maybe 2 fellow trainers, even not the best of them, it would have go down I think
