Shadow Pokémons haven’t been included in the list as they are very rare and so it is efficient to have a team made of them. Players can use Pokémons such as Reshiram, Zacian, Haxorus, Weavile, and Palkia in their team. Using Dragon-type counters will heavily help one as they are more effective than normal-type attacks on Mega Latias. This is the first time Mega legendaries have been introduced in the game so fighting against them is going to be very exciting.
