Pokemon GO Tapu Fini: Debut, Shiny, Weaknesses, Counters, and More

The last of the island deity!

by Noah Nelson


As Season of Alola comes to a close in Pokemon GO, Tapu Fini, the last legendary Alola Pokemon, is finally here. Launching with the Alola to Alola closer event, Tapu Fini is debuting in Pokemon GO. Here is everything you need to know in order to catch Tapu Fini in Pokemon GO.

Tapu Fini Debut in Pokemon GO

As mentioned previously, Tapu Fini will debut in the Pokemon GO with the start of Alola to Alola, which starts on Wednesday, May 25, at 10:00 a.m. local time and ends on Tuesday, May 31, at 8:00 p.m. local time. During this time, you can catch a Tapu Fini in the 5-Star Raid. This may be one of the only times to catch Tapu Fini, so you’ll definitely want to give it a shot.

Can Tapu Fini Be Shiny?

Similar to the other Alola god Pokemon, Tapu Fini cannot be shiny in Pokemon GO just yet. But, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to catch Tapu Fini. Tapu Fini is a Water- and Fairy-type Pokemon and has a really high defense. During Alola to Alola, Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, and Tapu Fini will be available to battle and catch in the 5-Star Raid.

Tapu Fini Weaknesses and Counters

Since Tapu Fini is a Water- and Fairy-type Pokemon, it is weak to Poison-, Grass-, and Electric-type attacks and is immune to Dragon-type attacks. With that in mind, here are the best Pokemon to take in the battle against Tapu Fini:

Pokemon Fast Attack Charged Attack
Mega Gengar Shadow Claw Sludge Bomb
Raikou Thunder Shock Wild Charge
Zarude Vine Whip Power Whip
Mega Beedrill Poison Jab Sludge Bomb
Therian Forme Thundurus Volt Switch Thunderbolt
Mega Venusaur Razor Leaf Frenzy Plant

If you don’t have any of the counter Pokemon above, focus on the Pokemon you do have with the most powerful attacks that work with Tapu Fini’s weaknesses. If you do that and go into the 5-Star Raid with your friends, you’ll surely defeat Tapu Fini and have a chance to catch it.
