Zekrom is a very tough opponent to fight against and players should set their team depending on their manpower. If they have a lot of players in their team, they can use Pokémon like Dialga and Excadrill. If they have only a few players in their team, then they should try to use Dragon-type Pokémon against Zekrom to defeat it as quickly as possible.
