Magneton is a dual-type Steel and Electric Pokémon with a max CP of 2810. The reason for it being such an easy opponent is its weakness towards several counter types such as Ground, Fire, and Fighting.

In conclusion, Magneton is a Pokémon that players can easily defeat alone. It evolves into a great Pokémon but in its current form, it lacks bulk. Players should try to include their most powerful Ground-type Pokémons like Landorus and Golem while also having some other type attacks ready as a backup and they’ll be good to go.
