Genesect in Pokémon Go

Genesect is a generation V Pokémon with insectoid body features. The two-footed battle boss is a Steel and Bug-type Pokemon. It ravaged the battle arena in its last appearance and will very much do so again. Since Genesect is a Steel and Bug-type Pokemon the Fire-type Pokémon (e.g. Chandelure, Reshiram, Darmanitan, Moltres, etc) are the best option for neutralizing it.

Trainers need to implement out-of-the-box strategies to keep Genesect in check. The most important thing while preparing counter rosters is that players need to team up with Pokémon that can hurt Genesect in its weak spots.
