It would help if you tried to use your best Mega Pokémon of the types mentioned above against Shadow Entei. But if they are not sufficient enough or you don’t exactly have attacks from those Pokémon types, you can choose other options such as Bug, Fairy, Fire, Grass, Ice, and Steel type counters. They take reduced damage when compared to the other counter types but they can still help you out.
