Slaking Weakness Pokemon GO – Raid Guide and Best Counters 2021

Like one of the other new raid bosses, Snorlax, Slaking’s Normal-typing leaves it with a solitary weakness.

That weakness is Fighting-type moves, meaning, there’s only one set of Pokemon you’re going to want to bring to Slaking raids.

Best Counters for Slaking Weaknesses

As stated, Slaking’s only weakness is to Fighting-type moves and therefore, this is what you should look to exploit.

It does have a little variation from the best Snorlax counters, however.

The two best Mega Pokemon remain the same – Mega Gengar and Mega Lopunny but it’s the other counters that vary slightly.

Lucario, Conkeldurr, Machamp, Breloom, Blaziken and Hariyama all remain top prospects, however, the likes of Darmanitan and Landorus come into the mix.

The best moveset for these Pokemon can be found below:

  • Mega Lopunny – Low Kick/Focus Blast
  • Mega Gengar – Sucker Punch/Focus Blast
  • Lucario – Counter/Aura Sphere
  • Conkeldurr – Counter/Dynamic Punch
  • Darmanitan – Fire Fang/Focus Blast
  • Machamp – Counter/Dynamic Punch
  • Breloom – Counter/Dynamic Punch
  • Landorus – Extrasensory/Superpower
  • Hariyama – Counter/Dynamic Punch
  • Blaziken – – Counter/Focus Blast

Despite sporting a whopping attack stat, Slaking is easily soloed with the right counters in Pokemon GO.
