Gardevoir Weakness Pokemon GO — Raid Guide and Best Counters February 2021

Here's your guide to taking down Gardevoir in three-star raids.

February 14 sees a change in raid bosses within Pokemon GO. This coincides with the new Valentine’s Day event which is starting to roll out around the world. Some of the new Pokemon currently involved in raids include Gardevoir, Gallade and Umbreon. While these Pokemon have been featured in raids multiple times before, new Mega Evolutions and moves are being released regularly, and therefore the meta often changes. With that in mind, let’s see if Gardevoir has any Weakness in Pokemon GO and the best counters to take it down.

Gardevoir Weakness Pokemon GO

Gardevoir is a Psychic and Fairy-type Pokemon, leaving it with a variety of weaknesses. Its typing means that Poison, Steel and Ghost-type moves are all super effective against it. This ensures there is an abundance of good counters to Gardevoir in Pokemon GO, but what are they?

Best Counters For Gardevoir

There are a few top counters to Gardevoir in the game, let’s take a look at them.

Mega Gengar is the king of Gardevoir battles. Although it’s weak against Gardevoir’s Psychic moves, it’s strong against many other attacks it may use. Mega Beedrill is another very effective Mega counter.

The next set of Pokemon to consider is your Steel-types. Metagross is the stand out performer in this area, in both his Shadow and Non-Shadow forms. Dialga and Genesect are also both great counters providing you’ve raided them enough to earn enough candy to power them up. Shadow Scizor and Excadrill are two solid yet slightly more budget counters.

Alongside the Steel-types, there are a couple of solid Ghosts. Both Chandelure and Origin Form Giratina are good picks here. Shadow Mewtwo can also provide a great solution to Gardevoir.

Mega Gengar – Lick/Shadow Ball.
Mega Beedrill – Poison Jab/Sludge Bomb
Metagross – Bullet Punch/Meteor Mash
Dialga – Metal Claw/Iron Head
Genesect – Metal Claw/Magnet Bomb
Shadow Scizor – Bullet Punch/Iron Head
Excadrill – Metal Claw/Iron Head
Chandelure – Hex/Shadow Ball
Origin Form Giratina – Shadow Claw/Shadow Ball
Shadow Mewtwo – Psycho Cut/Shadow Ball
