How To Catch Galarian Weezing in Pokémon GO

A new raid was added to Pokémon GO during the Crackling Voltage event. Mega Aerodactyl made a comeback in Mega Raids, and Shiny Tapu Koko was added to Tier Five Raids. Galarian Weezing, a Fairy-type variation of the original Pokémon, was another creature that players encountered in Tier Three raids.

Galarian Pokémon are native to the Galar region in Pokémon Go. They are new variants of classic favorites like the Alolan and Hisuian. Each one is unique in terms of both look and type.

The last main series of Pokémon games to be released worldwide was Sword and Shield, and it added numerous new Galar forms. These new Pokémon were given cosmetic updates and a few additional enhancements.

A Galarian Weezing can only be killed while participating in three-star raids. You must first be able to defeat it to be able to catch it. Ideally, you should power up counters especially Shadow Pokémon with their skills unlocked.

Due of its dual fairy and poison type, you might need assistance from other trainers to fight it. Galarian Weezing can be defeated with just one trainer, but ensure that you have top counters with maximum CP and effective moves. The best method is to use Golden Razz Berries with the Circle Lock Technique to guarantee Great or Excellent throws.

Start the battle with your strongest psychic-type Pokémon, for example, Mewtwo with Psystrike unlocked. You can also use ground or steel-type Pokémon. Being a fairy-type Pokémon, Galarian Weezing is vulnerable to hard counters like Garchomp, Metagross or Dialga. More counters are listed below:

Ground Type

  • Mamoswine
  • Landorus
  • Rhyperior

Psychic Type

  • Espeon
  • Hoopa
  • Mewtwo

Steel Type

If you manage to catch one, Galarian Weezing’s best moves are Fairy Wind (Fast) and Play Rough (Charged). Choose Overheat from Galarian Weezing’s second Charged move if you have unlocked it as it gives an edge over Pokémon of the bug, grass, ice, and steel types. Additional moves are:


  • Fairy Wind
  • Tackle


  • Hyper Beam
  • Play Rough
  • Overheat
  • Sludge

The community was happy with Weezing receiving a Galar form, viewing it as an improvement. It is no surprise that every trainer wants this Pokémon in their PokeDex!
