Every Lampent Weakness in Pokemon GO

Lampent has two types in Pokemon GO, Fire and Ghost, meaning it has a total of five different weaknesses. They are as follows: Dark, Ghost, Ground, Rock and Water-type moves.

It also has a whopping nine resistances, so avoid bringing Bug, Fairy, Fighting, Fire, Grass, Ice, Normal, Poison or Steel-type Pokemon.

Lampent Raid Guide and Best Counters

As stated, you want to exploit Lampent’s weaknesses to Dark, Ghost, Ground, Rock and Water-type moves and thankfully, there are plenty of options.

In the Mega department, you want to consider Mega Gengar, Mega Gyarados, Mega Blastoise or Mega Houndoom.

Following that, a mixture of Kyogre, Chandelure, Rhyperior, Giratina, Garchomp, Landorus, Darkrai, Rampardos, Gengar, Crawdaunt, Kingler, Hydreigon and Swampert will do the trick.

Here is the moveset you should be using for each of the above Pokemon.

  • Mega Gengar – Hex/Shadow Ball
  • Mega Houndoom – Snarl/Foul Play
  • Mega Blastoise – Water Gun/Hydro Cannon
  • Mega Gyarados – Bite/Crunch
  • Kyogre – Waterfall/Hydro Pump
  • Chandelure – Hex/Shadow Ball
  • Rhyperior – Mud Slap/Rock Wrecker
  • Origin Giratina – Shadow Claw/Shadow Ball
  • Garchomp – Mud Shot/Earth Power
  • Landorus – Mud Shot/Earthquake
  • Darkrai – Snarl/Dark Pulse
  • Rampardos – Smack Down/Rock Slide
  • Gengar – Shadow Claw/Shadow Ball
  • Crawdaunt – Snarl/Crabhammer
  • Kingler – Bubble/Crabhammer
  • Swampert – Water Gun/Hydro Cannon
  • Hydreigon – Bite/Dark Pulse

Because Lampent is only a three-star Raid Boss, you should be able to solo it relatively easily, providing you exploit its weaknesses.
