Articuno Weakness and Strength
Articuno is an Ice and Flying type Pokemon with a Max Capture CP of 1,676. However, Articuno Raid Boss CP is 37,603. Ideally you want to use a Rock type Pokemon against Articuno for best results. Rock Throw and Stone Edge from either Golem or Omastar would be best, but there are other options. Fire, Steel and Electric also work well against Articuno, so Flareon's Fire Spin or Overheat and Arcanine's Fire Fang and Fire Blast can also be beneficial against Articuno.
