The Alola Region has taken hold of the world of Pokémon GO and continues to bring more of the region’s Legendary Pokémon. The new Pokémon awaiting trainers is the guardian deity of Ula’ula Island, Tapu Bulu. This guide will explain the recommended raid counters for Tapu Bulu in Pokémon GO.
Tapu Bulu Raid Counters
Tapu Bulu is a Grass and Fairy-type Pokémon that can take the strongest attacks of any Pokémon. It is best to have Pokémon in your party that knows Flying, Fire, Ice, Steel, and especially Poison moves to counter this new Legendary. The suggested Pokémon and moves below will be the ones you will want to have in your party.
- Mega Gengar/Gengar: Hex and Sludge Bomb
- Mega Beedrill/Beedrill: Poison Jab and Sludge Bomb
- Toxicroak: Poison Jab and Sludge Bomb
- Roserade: Poison Jab and Sludge Bomb
- Ho-Oh: Incinerate and Brave Bird
- Charizard: Fire Spin and Blast Burn or Wing Attack
You can have multiple of the same Pokémon in your party to give you and other trainers a better chance of beating Tapu Bulu. This is a Legendary Raid, so you will need four or more members to beat Tapu Bulu. The more people you have in your party, the better off you are.
After beating Tapu Bulu, trainers will be given the chance to catch and add this new Legendary to their roster of ever-growing Pokémon. Unfortunately, the Shiny variant of Tapu Bulu is not available at this time, so trainers will have to wait a little longer for it.
