Mega Slowbro has finally appeared in Pokémon Go. Although Mega Slowbro is definitely a tough Pokémon to defeat, like every other tough Pokémon, Mega Slowbro also has its vulnerabilities which can be used against it with the best counter moves. We will discuss the best possible raid counters and move sets to defeat Mega Slowbro in Pokémon Go.
Mega Slowbro in Pokémon Go
Mega Slowbro is a dual-type Water and Psychic Pokémon which is extremely vulnerable to Bug, Ghost, Dark, Geass, and Electric-type moves which makes it very easy to deal damage on this beast. But strategy and the correct use of moves will still remain the key factor to defeating Mega Slowbro during battle raids.
Mega Slowbro Movesets
Mega Slowbro has a variety of moves which makes it a difficult opponent to defeat. Its fast moves include Water Gun and Confusion, and on the other hand, its charge moves include Water Pulse, Psychic, and Ice Beam which can deal heavy damage to the opponent. While the aforementioned Pokémon are the standard countermeasures, Mega Slowbro’s dual type of Water and Psychic occasionally turns the tables. For instance, Mega Slowbro’s STAB Psychic techniques are ineffective against the top counter, Mega Gengar. This also holds true for creatures like Giant Venusaur. So long as Mega Slowbro isn’t performing psychic moves, you should only mega evolve either Gengar or Venusaur. But these moves can be easily countered if the opponent uses the right strategy and moves at the right time.
