Top Galarian Weezing Counters

Pokebattler, which calculates all possible combinations of Pokémon and moves, lists the top ten Galarian Weezing counters as such:

  • Shadow Mewtwo: Confusion, Psystrike
  • Mega Alakazam: Confusion, Psychic
  • Shadow Metagross: Bullet Punch, Meteor Mash
  • Mewtwo: Confusion, Psystrike
  • Mega Latios: Zen Headbutt, Psychic
  • Hoopa Unbound: Confusion, Psychic
  • Shadow Latios: Zen Headbutt, Psychic
  • Shadow Alakazam: Confusion, Psychic
  • Shadow Mamoswine: Mud-Slap, High Horsepower
  • Metagross: Bullet Punch, Meteor Mash

It is recommended to power up your counters as much as possible, but creating that amount of strong Shadow Pokémon with their moves unlocked is a tall order for even the most practiced players. Here are ten additional non-Shadow and non-Mega counters that can help take down Galarian Weezing with efficiency.

  • Lunala: Confusion, Psychic
  • Alakazam: Confusion, Psychic
  • Hoopa Confined: Confusion, Psychic
  • Espeon: Confusion, Psychic
  • Jirachi: Confusion, Doom Desire
  • Latios: Zen Headbutt, Psychic
  • Mamoswine: Mud-Slap, High Horsepower
  • Therian Forme Landorus: Mud Shot, Earthquake
  • Dialga: Metal Claw, Iron Head
  • Excadrill: Mud-Slap, Earthquake

How Many Trainers Are Needed?

Galarian Weezing can be defeated with one Trainers, but if you cannot guarantee the top counters with maxed-out CP and the best moves, your best bet is to make sure you have two or more players. Using the Circle Lock Technique to guarantee Great or Excellent throws, along with Golden Razz Berries, is the best way to catch Pokémon.

Shiny Odds

Galarian Weezing can currently be encountered in its Shiny form, which is likely boosted but not currently known.

Happy raiding, fellow trainers!
