Mega Pokémon are coming to Pokémon GO for the first time and a certain Legendary Pokémon is leading the way. This guide will show you the recommended Latios raid counters in Pokémon GO.
Mega Latios Raid Counters
There has been one thing lacking in Pokemon GO and that has been Mega Legendary Pokémon. Since the introduction of Mega Pokémon, trainers have been wondering when Legendary Pokémon will be getting the Mega treatment. Trainers have to wait no further as Latios will be one of the first Pokémon to receive its Mega form.
Mega Latios is a dual Dragon and Fairy-type Pokémon that can dish out the damage, so you will want your best Pokémon in your party to take it down. Trainers will want to have Pokémon that are or know Bug, Dark, Dragon, Fairy, Ghost, or Ice-type moves as these types of Pokémon and moves will be most effective against Mega Latios. Below are the Pokémon you want to have in your party.
- Salamence: Dragon Tail and Outrage
- Mega Latios/Latios: Dragon Tail and Outrage
- Mega Gengar/Gengar: Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball
- Dragonite: Dragon Tail and Outrage
- Mega Houndoom/Houndoom: Snarl and Foul Play
- Weavile: Snarl and Avalanche
- Mamoswine: Powder Snow and Avalanche
Remember that you can have one or more of the same Pokémon in your party that will be effective against Mega Latios. As always, be sure to have at least five or more trainers in your party to give yourself a chance in beating Mega Latios. Upon beating Mega Latios, you will be given the chance to catch a regular Latios and obtain Mega Candy.
