Pokemon GO: How to Beat Palkia with the Best Counters

Recommended Videos

It’s the end of another big month of Pokemon GO events, which means it’s time for a brand new legendary raid. For February 2019 the boss featured in legendary raids around the world will be the Water/Dragon type Palkia from Gen 4. While the last few raid bosses haven’t put up much of a challenge, or were returning foes, this will be a new and interesting fight for trainers. To help out here’s how to beat Palkia with the best counters in Pokemon GO.

While Palkia is a dual-type, there’s really only one you need to focus on: Dragon. The best counters against Palkia focus in on this type, since it can be a big weakness with the right Pokemon. Below are the best attackers against Palkia, including their ideal moveset for the matchup.

Rayquaza – Dragon Tail and Outrage
Dragonite – Dragon Tail and Outrage or Draco Meteor
Palkia – Dragon Tail and Draco Meteor
Salamence – Dragon Tail and Draco Meteor
Latios – Dragon Breath and Dragon Claw
Latias – Dragon Breath and Outrage

A few other options that hit the right type counters are Gardevoir and Togekiss, though they won’t be dealing out the most damage. If you have 3-5 trainers in the battle, I’d stay focused on the ones above, especially the first three. With more people you can relax a little bit and try different matchups. Weather won’t play a huge role in Palkia raids, so don’t worry too much about it in your team picks.

And that’s how to beat Palkia with the best counters in Pokemon GO. If you have any trouble or any questions be sure to let us know in the comments below.
