Pokemon Go: How To Get Mega Rayquaza, Weakness and Counters

Rayquaza Pokemon Go will surely have plenty of trainers scrambling to battle in gym raids. Furthermore, certain fortunate players may be able to vanquish the legendary beast and capture its gleaming form.

Even if they aren’t looking for a gleaming Rayquaza, the possibility of capturing the mighty sky dragon is undeniably appealing. Trainers will require a strong squad of countermeasures if they are to defeat Rayquaza in raids.

Rayquaza Weakness

Rayquaza, being a Dragon/Flying-type in Pokemon GO, is vulnerable to Dragon, Fairy, Ice, and Rock-type attacks. Ice-type is the most effective counter against this raid monster, as it provides double super effective damage because both Rayquaza’s kinds are vulnerable to it.

To counter this Pokemon, trainers should emphasize employing Ice-types. However, if they aren’t accessible or aren’t up to par, there’s nothing wrong with using other elemental counters.

Rayquaza is a five-star raid monster in Pokemon GO, thus trainers may wish to attempt Mega Evolution to beat him. While Mega Evolving a Pokemon for a one or three-star raid would be a waste, a five-star monster like Rayquaza more than justifies evolution.
