Every Mega Slowbro Weakness in Pokemon GO

Unlike some Mega Evolutions, Mega Slowbro retains its original typing – Water and Psychic.

This combination means the Pokemon has a total of five different weaknesses available to exploit. They are Bug, Dark, Electric, Ghost and Grass-type moves.

Best Counters for Mega Slowbro Raids

Sometimes, you have to fight fire with fire and there’s a range of great Mega Pokemon you should consider bringing to combat Mega Slowbro.

They are Mega Gengar, Mega Gyarados, Mega Houndoom, Mega Venusaur and Mega Manectric.

To fill out the rest of your party, you need to consider Pokemon from the other types. The best Electric options you have are Zekrom, Magnezone and Raikou.

In terms of Dark-types you’ll want Darkrai, Hydreigon, Weavile or Yveltal.

Your best Ghost-type options are Chandelure or Giratina and then, realistically, there are no further Bug or Grass-type Pokemon worth bringing.

You can find the best movesets below:

  • Mega Gengar – Lick/Shadow Ball
