More Gigantamax Pokemon appear in the Wild Area in Pokemon Sword and Shield. With today's update, there are a bunch of new creatures to fight and capture in raids, and we're here to help you defeat them all. Starting with Gigantamax Lokhlass, the Ice and Water type character can be a tough challenge. Luckily, he has a few weaknesses that you can exploit. Here's how to beat Gigantamax Lokhlass in Pokemon Sword and Shield.



How to beat Gigantamax Lokhlass

Being a dual-type means that Lakhlass has a lot of strength, but also some solid weaknesses that you can use against him. There's no 4x weakness like with some other characters, but if you know your type chart you'll find a few that will work well. Pokemon Electric, Grass, Fighting, and Rock moves will deal double damage to Gigantamax Lokhlass, though you should watch out for their own weaknesses.

For example, Grass is a good choice until Lokhlass hits you with Blizzard. Of course, if you get him on board with a full four-coach squad, maybe refreshing the pads and joining their game, then you should be fine. The number of trainers is important in deciding how to beat Gigantamax Lokhlass.

Tyranitar, Rhinastoc, Voltali, Phyllali and Lucario are some solid counters against Lokhlass. If you don't have strong options among these species, then something similar will do, as long as they have a high level of 60 or more. Gorythmic, Raichu, and Mackogneur can make it work if you need them. And as always, Eternatos can deal tons of damage with his Dynamax Cannon move.



Now you know how to beat Gigantamax Lokhlass in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Once you have your Pokemon and a full team of Trainers, you should be able to pull them off easily. If you miss a few, focus on finding the perfect counter with the information above.
