Metang Weakness Pokemon GO - Raid Guide and Best Counters March 2021

Here's how to solo Metang in Pokemon GO raids.

Pokemon trainers are being treated to a wealth of raid changes in Pokemon GO this month. We started March with Incarnate Forme Landorus and friends, before switching to Incarnate Forme Tornadus and his crew. Now, to celebrate the new Searching for Legendaries event, the Pokemon GO raid bosses have changed again. While Tornadus stays, at least until Thursday, players have some new one and three-star raid bosses to tackle, including Alolan Graveler, Magneton, Skarmory, and Metang. With that in mind, let’s see if Metang has any Weakness in Pokemon GO and look at the best counters to take it down.

Metang Weakness Pokemon GO

Metang is a combination of Steel and Psychic-type. This means it has four weaknesses players can take advantage of. The Pokemon has weaknesses to Fire, Dark, Ground and Ghost-type moves, so there is plenty for players to take advantage of here.

Best Counters For Alolan Graveler

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

There are no fewer than FOUR Mega Pokemon that are worth bringing to Metang Raids – these are Mega Charizard X and Y, Mega Gengar and Mega Houndoom 

On top of the Mega Pokemon, there are a few legendary Pokemon that you should consider bringing to Metang raids, including Reshiram, Darkrai, Heatran and Groudon.

Outside of Mega and Legendaries, there is a handful of slightly more common Pokemon to bring. These are Excadril, Chandelure, Darmanitan and Gengar.

Mega Charizard X – Ember/Blast Burn
Mega Charizard Y – Fire Spin/Blast Burn
Mega Gengar – Lick/Shadow Ball
Mega Houndoom – Snarl/Foul Play
Reshiram – Fire Fang/Overheat
Darkrai – Snarl/Shadow Ball
Heatran – Fire Spin/Flamethrower
Groudon – Mud Shot/Earthquake
Excadrill – Mud-Slap/Earthquake
Chandelure – Fire Spin/Shadow Ball
Darmanitan – Fire Fang/Overheat
Gengar – Lick/Shadow Ball

Bringing a powered up combination of the above Pokemon should allow trainers to solo the raid.
