Kartana is a Grass/Steel-type Ultra Beast that can unleash devastating moves on its enemies and is now taking over Pokemon GO as a five-star Raid boss. With every raid, you need to prepare yourself adequately with the knowledge to establish proper strategies to triumph over bosses. In this guide, we’ll be helping you defeat or capture this Raid boss by sharing all Kartana weaknesses in Pokemon GO.

Since Kartana’s a Grass/Steel-type Pokemon, a barrage of fire attacks will absolutely melt its HP. Fire attacks have a 2.56x multiplier due to Kartana being a hybrid Pokémon with two types that are weak to fire. However, a fighting Pokémon will be a good substitute if you lack a fire Pokémon as they will have a 1.6x multiplier. This is because Fighting moves are super effective against Steel only, not Grass, so the multiplier isn’t quite as stacked as Fire-type attacks.

It’s essential to have at least a Fire or Fighting-type to defeat Kartana. Other Pokémon types will have difficulty challenging this Ultra beast, as Kartana will quickly wipe your entire team out.
