The latest Pokemon GO event, Luminous Legends Y, is starting to kick off around the globe, along with a range of new wild Pokemon, Research Tasks and Raid Bosses.

One of the Raid Bosses appearing as part of this new rotation is Galarian Weezing, a Pokemon that hasn’t been featured in a while.

Because of the ever-changing meta, new Pokemon and moves releasing and balance changes released by Niantic, the optimum counters for Galarian Weezing will have changed since its last visit.

So, here is every Galarian Weezing weakness, the best counters and a raid guide on how to defeat the Pokemon.

Galarian Weezing Weakness

Galarian Weezing rocks a very unusual dual-Fairy/Poison typing. This means, one of Fairy’s biggest weaknesses, Poison moves, are no longer effective.

Instead, the weaknesses you want to be taking advantage of are Ground, Psychic and Steel.

Bear in mind that Galarian Weezing has some pretty hefty resistances if you can’t fill your party with the above types, including a 4x resistance to Bug, Dragon and Fighting-type moves and regular resistances to Dark, Fairy and Grass.

Best Counters for Galarian Weezing’s Weaknesses

For once, there aren’t many Mega Pokemon that are worth bringing to a raid. If you are going to, however, Mega Gengar is your pick.

Overall, the top Pokemon you want to consider for Galarian Weezing raids is none other than Mewtwo.

There are a few Steel-types that you should definitely consider bringing, with Metagross being the top pick, closely followed by Dialga, Excadrill, Jirachi and Genesect.

In terms of Ground-types, Rhyperior is your best bet here with Therian Landorus and Groudon other solid picks.

Here are the best movesets for the above Pokemon:

  • Mega Gengar – Lick/Psychic
  • Mewtwo – Psycho Cut/Psystrike
  • Metagross – Bullet Punch/Meteor Mash
  • Dialga – Metal Claw/Iron Head
  • Excadrill – Metal Claw/Earthquake
  • Jirachi – Confusion/Doom Desire
  • Genesect – Metal Claw/Magnet Bomb
  • Rhyperior – Mud Slap/Earthquake
  • Landorus – Mud Shot/Earthquake
  • Groudon – Mud Shot/Earthquake

The good news is players can solo Galarian Weezing, provided they bring along a range of high level/good IV counters.
