Pokémon Go Blacephalon Raid: Best Moveset, Counters, and Tips

Guide for the best counters against Blacephalon during Battle Raids!

Blacephalon is a Tier 5 Ultra Beast Raid Boss in Pokémon Go. It is a slender body with vague limbs and a white collar. It holds the spherical head of the Pokémon in place and its spine and pelvic area have blue, pink, and yellow stripes. As it is an Ultra Beast Raid Boss, it will be quite difficult to fight against which is why you will need the perfect counters against it. So in this Pokémon Go guide, we are going to talk about the best ways and counters using which you’ll be able to fight against Blacephalon in the best way possible.

Blacephalon in Pokémon Go

Blacephalon is a dual-type Fire and Ghost Pokémon with a maximum CP of 3727 at level 50. It is vulnerable to Dark, Ghost, Ground, Rock, and Water-type counters. Even if you have the perfect set of counters you’ll not be able to defeat Blacephalon all by yourself which is why I recommend you go into groups of at least two to four players against it. You should bring even more players with you if you don’t have the optimal counters.
