Galarian Weezing is actually one of the first Pokemon to make the jump from the new Pokemon Sword and also Shield titles to Pokemon GO. With the release of Pokémon Sword and Shield, Pokémon Go is celebrating with the introduction of the first Galarian Variant Pokémon now: this. Fortunately, we have got everything that you need to know to take on this new four-star Raid! In this article, we are going to talk about the Weezing Counters in Pokemon Go. Let’s begin!
What is actually Galarian Weezing?
A special regional variant of the Gen I Pokémon Weezing, Galarian Weezing is actually a Fairy and Poison-type. It does not currently have a great move pool, and it’s stats are not all that impressive actually. Still, it looks really cool and future additions to any Pokémon’s move pool can also change its utility. If nothing else, then you will want this one for the Pokédex entry.
Unlike the original Weezing, Galarian Weezing is actually a dual-type Poison or Fairy, that makes countering its Raid in Pokemon GO a little more complicated. With moves at its disposal dealing Poison, Normal, Fairy, and Fire damage, that bringing the right Pokemon for the job is important. However, anything that can deal with Steel, Ground, or Psychic damage will do well against this Galarian Weezing.
How to Beat Galarian Weezing?
As a Fairy and Poison-type Pokémon, you are going to want Steel, Ground, and also Psychic-type Pokémon to counter Galarian Weezing.
A Mewtwo with Psycho Cut and Psystrike is actually the best for taking on Galarian Weezing. If you do not have the Legacy moves, Confusion and Psychic are also good moves for this raid as well.
A Metagross along with Bullet Punch and Meteor Mash also does an outstanding job-crushing Galarian Weezing. This is another Legacy move, but given it was featured in a Community Day, most of the players have at least one lying around.
A Jirachi with Confusion and Doom Desire does well against Galarian Weezing, however, given that it is a Mythical Pokémon, players can only have one of this Pokémon.
A Dialga along with Metal Claw and Iron Head works well in this Raid. It does not get the STAB benefit from these Steel-type moves but will still take out Galarian Weezing fast.
A Latios along with Zen Headbutt and Psychic does well against Galarian Weezing so long as it does not have Play Rough. When Play Rough will hit Latios hard, Latios does resist Overheat, unlike the other recommended counters.
An Excadrill with Metal Claw and Drill Run will actually serve well in this Raid. Not a lot of players have caught enough Drilbur to evolve many Excadrill, but if you have them, then this is a good use for them.
Some other potential Pokémon for this Raid also include:
- Celebi with Confusion and Psychic
- Latias with Zen Headbutt and Psychic
- Regigigas with Zen Headbutt and Giga Impact
- Alakazam with Confusion and Psychic
- Espeon with Confusion and Psychic
- Gallade with Confusion and Psychic
