Yveltal Weakness Pokemon GO

Yveltal has a Dark/Flying-type combination. This leaves it with a nice range of resistances but an even better range of weaknesses.

To take down Yveltal, you should consider bringing Electric, Fairy, Ice and Rock-type Pokemon to the party.

Best Counters For Yveltal

A mixture of any of the above types will set you on your way to being successful in Yveltal raids, however, some Pokemon are definitely more well suited.

If you’re going to bring a Mega Pokemon to the battle, Mega Manectric is by far your best choice. Mega Ampharos can also offer good coverage.

Mega Manectric/Ampharos can provide a nice boost to other Electric-type Pokemon, including Zekrom, Therian Thundurus, Electivire, Magnezone and Raikou, all of whom should be priorities.

Rock-type Pokemon are always reliable when it comes to hitting hard with the trio of Rampardos, Rhyperior and Terrakion your top picks here.

If you’re looking to cool things down a little with Ice-types, Galarian Darmanitan and Mamoswine are solid options, with Gardevoir and Togekiss your top Fairy-types.

You can check out the best movesets below:

  • Mega Manecrtic – Charge Beam/Wild Charge
  • Mega Amparos – Volt Switch/Zap Cannon
  • Zekrom – Charge Beam/Wild Charge
  • Therian Thundurus – Volt Switch/Thunderbolt
  • Rampardos – Smack Down/Rock Slide
  • Rhyperior – Smack Down/Rock Wrecker
  • Electivire – Thunder Shock/Wild Charge
  • Raikou – Thunder Shock/Wild Charge
  • Galarian Darmanitan – Ice Fang/Avalanche
  • Zapdos – Thunder Shock/Thunder Bolt
  • Terrakion – Smack Down/Rock Slide
  • Mamoswine – Powder Snow/Avalanche

  • Gardevoir – Charm/Dazzling Gleam

We recommend that you bring a minimum of 5 trainers with you to tackle Yveltal, however, the more the merrier – and that shouldn’t be too difficult at GO Fest.
