Top Mawile Counters

Pokebattler, which calculates all possible combinations of Pokémon and moves, lists the top 10 Mawile counters as such:

  • Mega Charizard Y: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  • Shadow Moltres: Fire Spin, Overheat
  • Shadow Entei: Fire Fang, Overheat
  • Mega Charizard X: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  • Shadow Charizard: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  • Reshiram: Fire Fang, Overheat
  • Mega Houndoom: Fire Fang, Flamethrower
  • Darmanitan: Fire Fang, Overheat
  • Shadow Magmortar: Fire Spin, Fire Punch
  • Shadow Arcanine: Fire Fang, Flamethrower

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 Mawile with efficiency.

  • Chandelure: Fire Spin, Overheat
  • Blaziken: Fire Spin, Blast Burn
  • Moltres: Fire Spin, Overheat
  • Therian Forme Landorus: Mud Shot, Earthquake
  • Entei: Fire Fang, Overheat
  • Flareon: Fire Spin, Overheat
  • Excadrill: Mud-Slap, Drill Run
  • Emboar: Ember, Blast Burn
  • Heatran: Fire Spin, Flamethrower
  • Charizard: Fire Spin, Blast Burn

How Many Trainers Are Needed?

Mawile can be defeated by solo trainers even when it is in Tier Three. It is helpful for those who want to complete Tier Three raids alone to power up their Pokémon and suit them with the correct attacks, as listed above.

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

Mawile has a boosted Shiny rate of approximately one in 60. Happy raiding, fellow trainers!
