Necrozma is a Tier 5 Raid Boss in Pokémon Go. It is a large black Pokémon that has a humanoid structure whose body is comprised of colorful crystals. As it is a Tier 5 Raid Boss, it will be challenging to fight against it even if you have high-level counters. So in this Pokémon Go guide, we are going to talk about the best ways and counters using which you will able to have the best chances at winning against Necrozma.

Necrozma in Pokémon Go

Necrozma is a pure Psychic-type Pokémon with a maximum CP of 4163 at level 50. It is vulnerable to Bug, Dark, and Ghost-type counters. As it is a Tier 5 Raid, you won’t be able to fight against Necrozma all by yourself even if you have the best counters. So you should bring at least a group of a minimum of three players along with yourself if you have optimal counters and a group of no less than seven players if you don’t have high-level counters.

The best moves from the movepool of Necrozma are Shadow Claw as a fast move and Dark Pulse as a charge move. Both are the best combination of moves that can be used in Pokémon Gyms and PvP battles. Other decent options from its moveset that I’ve found to be useful are Psycho Cut, Metal Claw, Iron Head, Future Sight, and Outrage.
