Guide for the best counters against Medicham during Battle Raids!

Medicham is a Tier 3 Raid Boss in Pokémon Go. It is a humanoid bipedal Pokémon that looks similar to a person practicing yoga. Its body is gray with red and yellow adornments. As it is a Tier 3 Raid, you won’t have much problem while fighting against it if you are using the right counters. So in this Pokémon Go guide, we are going to talk about the best ways and counters using which you’ll be able to defeat Medicham in the best way possible.

Medicham in Pokémon Go

Medicham is a dual-type Psychic and Fighting Pokémon with a maximum CP of 1618 at level 50. It is weak towards Fairy, Flying, and Ghost-type attacks. You won’t have much problem defeating Medicham all by yourself if you are carrying the right counters. If you don’t have the ideal counters, I’ll recommend you to go in a group of at least two players against it.

The best moves from the movepool of Medicham are Counter and Dynamic Punch. Both of them have a combined DPS of 56 and it is also the best combination of moves that you can use in both Pokémon Gyms and PvP battles. In my opinion, other good options from the moveset of Medicham include Psycho Cut, Ice Punch, Psychic, and Power-Up Punch.
