TL;DR: Tyranitar, Mewtwo, Gengar, Houndoom, Scizor, Pinsir, Dragonite, Alakazam, Gyarados, in this order.
- My calculations are based on my Choose Your Attackers spreadsheet, which is a theoretical spreadsheet with advantages (less sensitivity to small parameter tweaks) and limitations (no breakpoints, less accuracy for specific levels). On the other hand, celandro‘s Mewtwo Raid Guide is based on Pokébattler simulations, which are harder to generalize but much more accurate for specific levels/IVs.
- My rankings give much more weight to DPS than to TDO/survivability, so they are more comparable to Pokébattler’s “Time to Win” rankings than to “Overall” rankings.

Note: since I’m lazy, I have listed TDO based on an average of Psycho Cut and Confusion. In case of Psycho Cut, push Dark attackers a bit down and Gengar a bit up. In case of Confusion, push Dark attackers a bit up and remove Gengar completely.
