Every Toxicroak Weakness in Pokemon GO

Toxicroak probably has the most interesting type combination of the new raid bosses, Fighting and Poison.

This leaves it with three weaknesses – Flying and Ground-type moves will do double-damage against the Pokemon, however, it’s Psychic-type weakness is the one you should look to exploit.

Psychic-type moves will do 4x damage to Toxicroak.

Best Counters for Toxicroak’s Weaknesses

As stated, your best option in Three-Star Toxicroak raids is by far Psychic-type Pokemon.

Mega Gengar, despite not being a Psychic-type, is the only Mega Pokemon that’s worth bringing into battle.

Overall, however, Mewtwo is by far the best choice.

Following that, both Latios and Latias are good options alongside Metagross, Espeon, Lugia, Gallade, Alakazam and Azelf.

The best movesets for each of the above Pokemon can be found below:

  • Mewtwo – Psycho Cut/Psystrike
  • Mega Gengar – Lick/Sludge Bomb
  • Latios – Zen Headbutt/Psychic
  • Latias – Zen Headbutt/Psychic
  • Alakazam – Confusion/Psychic
  • Metagross – Zen Headbutt/Psychic
  • Espeon – Confusion/Psychic
  • Lugia – Extrasensory/Future Sight
  • Gallade – Confusion/Psychic
  • Azelf – Extrasensory/Future Sight

Providing you bring a selection of these Pokemon, or other high-level Psychic-types, Toxicroak should be an easy solo.
