Currently, Pokemon GO is deep into an event, crossing over with another Pokemon title, New Pokemon Snap.

The event sees a bunch of Pokemon appear more frequently that are likely found in Snap as well as a bunch of new raid bosses.

One of the most popular raid bosses that are part of this event is Tyranitar, who returns to raids for the first time in a little while.

With that in mind, let’s check out if Tyranitar has a weakness and how to take it down in Pokemon GO.

Tyranitar Weakness Pokemon GO

Tyranitar is a Pokemon that has PLENTY of weaknesses to exploit.

It has a 2x weakness to:

  • Bug
  • Fairy
  • Grass
  • Ground
  • Steel
  • Water

With a brutal 4x weakness to Fighting-type moves. This is definitely something players should look to exploit.

Best Counters for Tyranitar Weaknesses

As stated, Tyranitar has a major weakness to Fighting-type Pokemon and this is where you should be looking to start.

Mega Lopunny is a very solid pick. It resists Tyranitar’s Dark-type moves, can hit hard with its own Fighting moves and buffs all other Fighting-type Pokemon.

The likes of Conkeldurr, Machamp, Lucario, Hariyama, Blaziken, Sirfetch’d and Breloom make up the rest of the top counters.

You can find their recommended movesets below:

Mega Lopunny – Low Kick/Focus Blast
Conkeldurr – Counter/Dynamic Punch
Machamp – Counter/Dynamic Punch
Lucario – Counter/Aura Sphere
Hariyama – Counter/Dynamic Punch
Blaziken- Counter/Focus Blast
Sirfetch’d – Counter/Close Combat
Breloom – Counter/Dynamic Punch

Tyranitar can be soloed but it can be fairly difficult – it’d be preferable to have at least two trainers to take it down.

Other Upcoming Raid Bosses

In May, Niantic is releasing a range of really exciting new Raid Bosses to Pokemon GO.

Headlining these are Xerneas, who will be appearing as part of the Luminous Legends X event, from May 4 to May 17 and Yveltal who will arrive on May 18 before departing on May 31.
