Pokémon Go: Best ways to counter Tapa Bulu

Since the beginning of the Alola event in Pokémon GO, trainers have been very busy, and as the event steps foot into its second month, trainers will only get busier.

Players will now get a chance to have a new Legendary Battle Raid encounter to test their skills.

Where to battle with Tapa Bulu in Pokemon GO

Starting from April 12, the Alola region’s Tapa Bulu will be visiting Tier 5 battler raids and offer players a new challenge till April 26. To win these extremely tough and challenging legendary Battle Raids, trainers will have to join hands with allies for the main fight and carefully do some research ahead of the opponent’s team to build a roster that will defeat the enemy roster during the raids.

Details of Tapa Bulu and its abilities

Tapa Bulu is a Grass and Fairy-type Pokémon. It is weak against ice, poison, flying, fire, and Steel-type moves, but it is resistant against Dark, Dragon, Electric, Fighting, Grass, Ground, and Water-type attacks. It’s a solid Pokémon against the legendary Dragon-types, such as Zekrom, but it’s also applicable against Walrein, Zacian, Groudon, Mewtwo, and Mamoswine.

Tapu Bulu has a maximum CP of 3,419, an attack of 208, a defense of 181, and stamina of 147. Although it is a reliable choice, Tapa Bulu has a very low amount of health and defense. This is in balance with its high attacking abilities, and trainers need to keep this in mind before making strategies.

Over time players will bring new strategies to counter Tapa Bulu during the event and use them effectively to win legendary Battle Raids.
