All Lugia’s Weaknesses and Best Pokemon Counters in Pokemon Go – Game News

Lugia returns to Five Star Raids in Pokémon Go for a limited time. This powerful Legendary Pokémon will be a tough opponent to beat, and you’ll want to work with your allies to help defeat it. Before you go on a raid against him, there are several weaknesses to be aware of that you can use to help defeat him. This guide covers all of Lugia’s weaknesses and the best Pokemon to counter him in Pokemon Go.

How to Beat Lugia in Pokemon Go

All of Lugia’s Weaknesses

Lugia is a Flying and Psychic type Pokémon. Thus, it will be weak to Dark, Electric, Ghost, Ice and Rock type moves and resistant to Fighting, Ground, Grass and Psychic type attacks. You should avoid using Pokémon that have these attacks in their moveset. Among the options, we highly recommend using Dark, Electric, Ghost, and Rock-type Pokémon against him. Pokémon able to use these attacks and align with these types are generally more robust and able to withstand Lugia’s powerful attacks.

The best Pokémon to counter Lugia

The best Pokémon to counter Lugia in this five-star raid are Magnezone, Rampardos, and Mega Gengar.

Magnezone is an Electric and Steel type Pokémon. Thanks to his Steel type, he has a robust defense, but he has several Electric type attacks that will be decisive in defeating Lugia. Because it’s an all-rounder, you can place this Pokemon at the front of your team, or you can use it towards the end of the raid as you get closer to victory. The best moves Magnezone can learn are Spark for its fast move and Wild Charge and Zap Cannon for its charge moves.

The next Pokemon you’ll want to use will be Rampardos, a Rock-type Pokemon. Rampardos doesn’t have the highest defense, and outside of five-star raids, you don’t want to use it in Pokemon battles against other trainers. If you have one, you’ll probably only use it for PvE battles, like against Lugia. The best moveset Rampardos can use in this match is the fast move Smack Down and the charged moves Rock Slide and Outrage.

Mega Gengar is the last Pokemon you want to have on your team against Lugia. It’s the best option for taking down this Legendary Pokemon, given how powerful it is, and it can easily hit many of Lugia’s weaknesses. Additionally, it will boost the other player’s Pokémon in the same Raid Battle. The best moveset to know for this battle will be the fast move Shadow Claw and the charged moves Shadow Ball and Shadow Punch.

You will need to assemble a team of six Pokemon to defeat Lugia. Here are some other options to consider to add to your roster during the Five Star Raid.

  • candlestick
  • darkrai
  • elective
  • Galarain Darmanita
  • Gengar
  • Hydraigon
  • balance
  • mammochoon
  • Mega Gyarados
  • Raikou
  • hyperperior
  • terrakion
  • We have heard
  • Yveltal
  • Zapdos

Once you defeat Lugia, you can capture him at the end of the raid. There’s a chance you’ll catch a Shiny Lugia at the end of this raid, but it won’t always spawn after you win.
