Best Raid Counters For Lugia

Lugia Returns to Pokémon Go today and will be around until the second of April. This flying psychic type legendary has a few weaknesses, Electric, rock, dark, ghost and ice, so get practicing your curveballs and get these Pokémon ready to take on the psychic bird with and hands on his wings!


The dumbest looking legendary beast is actually the best counter to Lugia. It’s electric which is super effective against Lugia and also takes reduced damage from flying moves. Volt Switch/ Wild Charge being the ideal moves


Tyranitar is a pretty good counter for most raid bosses, if you don’t have one go out of your way to get this beast! Bite / crunch or stone Edge are the moves you’ll want so get your TMs out if needed


the other electric legendary is a must if you have him. charge beam / thunderbolt for a good one two combo


Mewtwo takes reduced damage from psychic moves being a psychic Pokémon. With the use of a charge TM you can get him shadow ball which is super effective against Lugia


This whale with wings can learn blizzard! Another super effective move against Lugia!

There are of course many other Pokémon you could use to counter Lugia, this is just a short list of the best. Agree? Disagree? Let me know what you think in the comments below or tweet at me @greedybeetle on Twitter. You can also find me on Facebook just search for greedy beetle.
