Galarian Weezing Raid Guide (Best Counters & Weaknesses)

To beat Galarian Weezing in a Pokémon GO Raid, Trainers must assemble a team of pocket monsters possessing Ground-, Steel-, and Psychic-type Moves.


Galarian Weezing’s unsightly appearance is the opposite of charming, but Pokémon GO Trainers might want to add this Raid Boss to their Pokédex for its comically ugly yet unique style. The two heads of this Weezing variant don whimsically tall top hats that function as chimney stacks, venting out large trails of smoke from the top. The toxic fumes from its body still abound, but this time, some of the pollution in Pokémon GO form an almost adorable-looking mustache and beard for its two heads. With such hideously dashing features, Galarian Weezing is a must-have for those who need to “catch ’em all.”

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Despite its noxious-looking countenance, Galarian Weezing is less dangerous compared to other 3-Star Raid Bosses in Pokémon GO, possessing only CP 16,511 and HP 3,600. Such stats make this Pokémon relatively easy to beat solo, but having a friend will undoubtedly make the battle more manageable. As a Fairy- and Poison-type monster, Galarian Weezing can effortlessly withstand Grass-, Dark-, Fairy-, Fighting-, Bug-, and Dragon-type Moves. On the other hand, Trainers can have a competitive edge in the Raid if they utilize Pokémon with the Boss’s three weaknesses — Steel, Ground, and Psychic.

Based on Pokebattler‘s findings, Trainers will have the best results in a Galarian Weezing Raid if they use Shadow Mewtwo, Mega Alakazam, Shadow Metagross, Mewtwo, Mega Latios, or Shadow Alakazam in Pokémon GO. Since Mewtwo and Alakazam appear twice in this top list of counters, these two Pokémon are understandably the best combatants to use against Galarian Weezing. However, those without Legendary Mewtwo or Alakazam’s rare variants can refer to the indexes below for other options.
