Best Counters For Zapdos
There are a few top counters to Zapdos in the game, let’s take a look at them.
Mega Abomasnow is the only Mega Pokemon that’s worth currently considering for Zapdos Raids and it is the undisputed MVP.
The main type of Pokemon you probably want to consider for Zapdos raids is Rock-types as there is plenty of choice and they’re relatively common. Rhyperior is probably the best performer in this area, closely followed by Ramparados. Tyranitar and Terrakion are also both great counters.
Alongside the Rock-types, there is a handful of decent Ice-type counters. The trio of Mamoswine (who offers a double weakness to Electric moves), Weavile and Galarian Darmanitan are all very are good picks here.
Mega Abomasnow – Powder Snow/Avalanche
Rhyperior – Smack Down/Rock Wrecker or Stone Edge
Ramparados – Smack Down/Rock Slide
Tyranitar – Smack Down/Stone Edge
Terrakion – Smack Down/Rock Slide
Mamoswine – Powder Snow/Avalanche
Weavile – Ice Shard/Avalanche
Galarian Darmanitan – Ice Fang/Avalanche
