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

Here's how to take down Torterra in Pokemon GO Raids.

The Season of Legends is now starting to roll out around the world. Pokemon GO’s second official Season, after the Season of Celebration, is ushering in a range of changes. There will be different Pokemon roaming the wild, a range of new research tasks and most importantly, a shakeup in the raid bosses. While early reports are still coming in regarding the Pokemon in raids, one we can be certain of is Torterra. While this Pokemon has been featured in raids before, new Mega Evolutions and moves are being released regularly, and therefore the meta often changes. With that in mind, let’s see if Torterra has any Weakness in Pokemon GO and look at the best counters to take it down.
