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

Guide for the best counters against Nosepass during Battle Raids!

Nosepass is a Tier 3 Raid Boss in Pokémon Go. It is a blue bipedal Pokémon that looks similar to the Easter Island Heads. It has a bright triangular nose that is highly magnetic which looks similar to an arrow. Its skin is rock solid and its nose performs as a working magnet that always points towards the north. It is a decent opponent whom you can defeat with the right counters. So in this Pokémon Go guide, we are going to talk about the best ways and counters that you can use to defeat Nosepass in the best way possible.

Nosepass in Pokémon Go

Nosepass is a pure Rock-type Pokémon with a maximum CP of 1123 at level 50. It is weak in Fighting, Grass, Ground, Steel, and Water-type attacks. If you have the perfect counters, you can fight against it all by yourself. If you don’t have the ideal counters, I would recommend you take a friend into the battle along with yourself.
