Compteurs Pokemon Go Mega Slowbro

Mega Slowbro is a Water/Psychic-type Pokemon, so you should bring a Grass, Electric, Bug, Ghost, or Dark-type Pokemon to target its weaknesses. Here are the best Mega Slowbro counters in Pokemon Go raids:

Pokémon fast attack Charged Attack
Mega Gengar charging beam Wild Charge
Mega Gyarados charging beam Wild Charge
Mega Venusaur charging beam Wild Charge
Mega-Ampharos charging beam Wild Charge

magnesone Spark Wild Charge
Yveltal To scold dark pulse

Keep in mind that Mega Slowbro is resistant to Fighting, Fire, Ice, Psychic, Steel, and Water-type attacks, so don't bring a Pokemon that has those kinds of moves.

If you want to take a Shadow Pokémon into battle, then Shadow Weavile with Snarl and Foul Play or Shadow Mewtwo with Psycho Cut and Shadow Ball are good choices. You can also pick up Shadow Zapdos with Thunder Shock and Thunderbolt or Shadow Tyranitar equipped with Bite and Crunch.

Pokemon Go Mega Slowbro Moveset

Mega Slowbro is equipped with Psychic/Water attacks. For fast attacks, he has Water Pistol and Confusion. Both will hit very hard due to their same attack bonus (STAB). If you brought Pokemon that are resistant to these attacks, you should be fine. For charged attacks, it is equipped with Psychic, Water Pulse, and Ice Beam.

How long will Mega Slowbro Raids last?

Mega Slowbro will appear in Mega Raids from Wednesday, September 1 through Tuesday, September 14. Mega Houndoom will be the next Mega Raid boss from this time until Friday, October 1.

How many players does it take to beat Mega Slowbro?

Because Mega Slowbro is a Mega Raid, it is recommended to have at least 4-5 players. Fighting it when the weather is spurred on by rainy or windy weather, however, could make things more difficult for small groups. As always, it's better to have more players on your team. The amount of Mega Energy you receive is based on how quickly you complete the raid, so a larger party will get you more energy.

Can Mega Slowbro be brilliant?

Just like other Mega Pokemon, you cannot catch Mega Slowbro in its Mega form. However, you can catch a normal Slowbro after completing the raid, and that Slowbro can be shiny. Chances are slim, but yes, you can catch a Shiny Slowbro after defeating it in a raid.

Pokémon Go is now available on mobile devices.
