Mega Lopunny Weakness Pokemon GO

Being one of the few pure Normal-type Mega Evolutions in Pokemon, Mega Lopunny has only one weakness – Fighting-type moves.

Thankfully, there is an abundance of decent Fighting-type Pokemon within the game – let’s take a look at them.

Best Counters For Mega Lopunny Weakness

As stated, Mega Lopunny is only extra vulnerable to Fighting-type moves.

While there aren’t currently any Mega Fighting-type Pokemon – Mega Gengar offers a solid option here. It resists Lopunny’s Normal and Fighting-type moves and also has a Fighting-type charged move of its own.

In terms of Fighting-type Pokemon to bring, you should consider the following: Lucario, Conkeldurr, Breloom, Machamp, Blaziken and Sirfetch’d.

You can find the best movesets below:

Mega Gengar – Sucker Punch/Focus Blast
Lucario – Counter/Aura Sphere
Conkeldurr – Counter/Dynamic Punch
Breloom – Counter/Dynamic Punch

Machamp – Counter/Dynamic Punch
Blaziken- Counter/Focus Blast
Sirfetch’d – Counter/Close Combat

Mega Lopunny can be taken down in a group of three, provided everybody has max level counters, however, the more the merrier.
