Typhlosion Weakness, Counters and Best Moveset in Pokemon GO

Typhlosion is a beast in the best way possible. But he’s also a pure Fire-Type with plenty of weaknesses. He’s particularly vulnerable to Ground-, Rock, and Water-Type moves.

That opens him up to quite a few different types of counters. If you really want to beat a Typhlosion into submission, these are the best Pokemon to bring against him.

  • (Primal) Kyogre with Waterfall and Origin Pulse
  • (Primal) Groudon with Mud Shot and Precipice Blades
  • (Mega) Swampert with Water Gun and Hydro Cannon
  • (Mega) Aerodactyl with Rock Throw and Rock Slide
  • (Mega) Blastoise with Water Gun and Hydro Cannon
  • (Shadow) Swampert with Water Gun and Hydro Cannon

These Pokemon are listed in the order of their effectiveness, with Primal, Mega, and Shadow variants all being the most ideal. But if you don’t have that, that’s okay. Just bring out those STAB moves and you should be fine.
