Pokémon GO Fest 2022 is coming to an end and alongside it are new Pokémon for trainers to battle. One of those Pokémon is the Ultra Beast Xurikitree. This electric-wired Pokémon is fierce, but can be taken down with the right team. This guide will show you the Xuriktree raid counters in Pokémon GO.
Xurkitree Raid Counters
Ultra Beasts are getting ready to invade Pokémon GO in a big way. With a send-off like no other for Pokémon GO Fest 2022, trainers will be able to battle and catch Ultra Beasts. One Ultra Beast trainers will encounter is Xurkitree.
Xurkitree is an Electric-type Pokémon that was first introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon in the Alola Region. With Xurkitree being a single type Pokémon, there will be plenty of Pokémon to choose from to have on your team. Strong Ground-type Pokémon will be what you want to have as they will deal the most damage and receive only half damage from Xurkitree. Below are the recommended Pokémon you want on your team for the Xurkitree raid counters.
- Rhyperior: Mud-Slap and Earthquake
- Flygon: Mud Shot and Earth Power/Earthquake
- Garchomp: Mud Shot and Earth Power/Earthquake/Sand Tomb
- Excadrill: Mud-Slap/Mud Shot and Drill Run/Earthquake
- Groudon: Mud Shot and Earthquake
- Mamoswine: Mud-Slap and Bulldoze
Remember that you can have more than one of each Pokémon in your party to fill it out. Xurkitree is an Ultra Beast and a Five-Star Raid you will want to have six or more people in your party. Once you have defeated Xurkitree, you will be given the opportunity to catch it. Currently, the Shiny Variant is not available and may not be available for some time.
