Best Counters in Pokemon GO
Rayquaza is weak to four different types. They are:
However, Ice Type Pokemon are comfortably the best bet for taking on Rayquaza in a Raid. The best counter of them all, though, is Mamoswine, which is the best Ice Attacker in the game.
Having one with the moves Powder Snow and Avalanche is the best option for countering Rayquaza in Pokemon GO. Of course, you will need to evolve a Pilloswine with a Sinnoh Stone to get Mamoswine in the game.
Other Ice Types are great, especially those with an Ice Type fast and charged move, such as Weavile with Ice Shard and Avalanche.
Some other Pokemon can be good counters for Rayquaza in Pokemon GO in certain instances. Mewtwo is great is you have one with Ice Beam as its charged more, or Dragon Type Pokemon when the Rayquaza you’re facing doens’t have Outrage.
Alternatively, you can use the likes of Regice if you’re after a Tank counter that can just soak up the damage.
