The legendary will appear in the game from 3:00 PM today, Monday, November 4, until the same time on November 26. This means that you will have a little more than 3 weeks to catch it and get as many specimens of this legendary as possible.
HOW TO BEAT COBALION TO CAPTURE HIM?
That Cobalion is a legendary creature and that it is part of 5 Star Raids means that it is ready to fight. Fortunately, your confrontation against him does not have to be exaggeratedly complicated and if you are prepared you may overcome it without much trouble.
In order for you to be ready to face Cobalion, it is first important that you know that it is a Steel / Fight Pokémon, which makes it weak to fire, fight and ground attacks. It is also important that you know that it is a legendary with 163 points of attack, 192 defense and 15,000 energy. Another important point is that at level 20 you can find it in a range of 1459 to 1727 CP, while in favorable weather (snow or cloudy) it will be between 2061 and 2159 CP.
Since you know the most important Cobalion data, what do you have to do to beat it? As we said before, the most important thing is to be prepared and your best weapon will be an attack with powerful Pokémon that have fire or earth type attacks. For example, a Blaziken, a Moltres or a Chandelure with movements like Igneous Ring and Hot Flask can be your best allies in this fight. Another good alternative is Flareon and Entei with Igneous Ring and Igneous Fang, respectively. On the other hand, if you are looking for a Pokémon that serves as a tank, it may be time to take out your Heaton.
