Drednaw will telegraph its strong attacks by showing a meter below. When the meter gets full, it is best to get away from the direction Drednaw is facing to dodge the incoming attack. Successfully avoiding the attack will give extra time to deliver additional damage to Drednaw as it cycles again.

When to Beat Drednaw

Early Experience Boost

If your team manages to defeat Drednaw early on, the extra experience it gives will be a huge advantage. It could potentially translate into a level advantage, or close the gap on any level disparity.

Use Bonus Shields for Pushing

Defeating Drednaw gives you and your teammates bonus shields, regardless of where they are in the map. It is best to coordinate with your teammates when you are taking Drednaw objective as the shields could be extremely helpful for pushing for goals or taking on enemy Pokemon.

When Not to Go to Drednaw

When it Spawns in the Early Game

Because of it's high Hp and strong moves, Drednaw is not a high priority objective as soon as it appears. Since it spawns at the extra space at the Bottom Lane, overcommitting to it could leave your goals defenseless. It is best to be patient, and prevent the enemy team from capturing Drednaw until your team is capable of defeating it effectively.

Drednaw Moves

Normal Attack

Is Beating Drednaw Worth It?

When your team gets the opportunity, Drednaw's experience boost can give your team a huge advantage in level when you defeat it early. Plus, the bonus shields, provides a surge in power level for your team.

Though, it is not game changing compared to what Zapdos gives when defeated, Drednaw's effects are still worth investing your time in when it is in the battlefield. But, of course, it is important to assess the situation with your teammates first whether taking Drednaw is a priority or not.
