Mega Aerodactyl rock-type Mega evolution was the first of its kind in Pokémon Go when it was released back in January this year. It is a flying type with an affinity for Rock and since it is a Mega Pokémon, you better walk into the arena prepared with your best Pokémon and earn some massive points. Here’s our Pokémon Go guide to tell you the best raid counters for Mega Aerodactyl.
Mega Aerodactyl in Pokémon Go
As far as raw attacking power goes, Mega Aerodactyl is one of the strongest DPS in Pokémon Go. It even ranks above Tyranitar, Terrakion, and Rock Wrecker Rhyperior. Though it still cannot beat one of the best heavy-hitters of the game, Rampardos. Mega Aerodactyl has an amazing offense along with its high damage, owing to its bulky build.

Being one of the best rock-type powerhouses in Pokémon Go, it might be a bit difficult to defeat this monstrous Pokémon, but it is still doable with a bit of effort. As a Rock and Flying-type, Mega Aerodactyl is susceptible to higher damage from Electric, Ice, Steel, Rock, and Water-type moves.
The strongest move set this Pokémon has is Rock Throw, Rock Slide, and Ancient Power with 16, 35.6, and 24 DPS respectively, and has a CP capped at 4,118. Even though it might be one of the strongest in the game, even this “King of the Skies in Ancient Times” has its weaknesses against certain types as already mentioned above.
