Every Slowking Weakness in Pokemon GO

Like Mega Slowbro, Slowking is a Water and Psychic-type Pokemon.

This means it has five major weaknesses you should look to exploit. They are as follows: Bug, Dark, Electric, Ghost and Grass.

Best Counters for Slowking Raids

Because both Mega Slowbro and Slowking share the same type combination, they also share very similar counters.

This time out, there are four Mega Pokemon to consider – Mega Gengar, Mega Gyarados, Mega Houndoom and Mega Manectric.

The top Electric-type Pokemon remain the same. They are Zekrom, Magnezone and Raikou.

Alongside those, the Ghost and Dark-types are also almost identical. Chandelure and Giratina tick the Ghost box and Weavile and Yveltal return, with Tyranitar overtaking Hydreigon as your third Dark-type pick.

The best movesets for each of the picks are below:

  • Mega Gengar – Lick/Shadow Ball
  • Mega Gyarados – Bite/Crunch
  • Mega Houndoom – Snarl/Foul Play
  • Mega Venusaur – Vine Whip/Frenzy Plant
  • Mega Manectric – Snarl/Wild Charge
  • Zekrom – Charge Beam/Wild Charge
  • Magnezone – Spark/Wild Charge
  • Raikou – Thunder Shock/Wild Charge
  • Darkrai – Snarl/Dark Pulse
  • Yveltal – Snarl/Dark Pulse
  • Weavile – Snarl/Dark Pulse
  • Tyranitar – Bite/Crunch
  • Giratina – Shadow Claw/Shadow Ball
  • Chandelure – Hex/Shadow Ball

Slowking should be a relatively easy solo, providing you bring a combination of these Pokemon.
