Palkia counteracts weaknesses (August 2021)

Must read

Palkia will be a raid boss thanks to Pokémon GO Ultra Unlock part 2, and it can be quite frustrating in battle.

Like other legendary dragons in the game, Palkia can be a nuisance because she has a huge Attack stat, but she also has decent Defense and Stamina. This means that Pokémon will have more time to beat Palkia, giving it enough time to unleash its barrage of heavy attacks.

However, while beating this Pokémon will take a while, there are certainly strong counterattacks.


How can trainers get through the god of space in Pokémon GO?

Mathematically, the best possible counter for Palkia is Shadow Salamence. This is partly because it is a Shadow form of a Pokémon that already has a nasty Attack stat, but also due to its movepool.

Salamence gains access to Outrage, a phenomenal attack that he can use on average 1.5 times per battle.

Most of the Pokémon with the fastest payouts are other strong Dragon types like Shadow Dragonite, Rayquaza, and Zekrom. However, the bad news is that they also take super effective damage from Palkia’s Dragon Tail and Draco Meteor. Essentially, the hope here is that these Pokémon can get through Palkia before they knock them out themselves.

That said, using Dragon-types with Outrage can be a safe bet with Palkia. The only dragon charge move Palkia learns is Draco Meteor, so options like Salamence and Dragonite will easily charge an Outrage before Palkia retaliates.

Regardless, some coaches may want a safer strategy. In this case, there is no better way to counter dragons than the fairy-type ones. Shadow Gardevoir had the third fastest win against Palkia, but even that was in 685.9 seconds.

That’s a great testament to Palkia’s volume, but at least Gardevoir doesn’t have to worry about taking huge Draco Meteors.

Ice types are also commonly known for dealing with dragon types, but that is not the case here. Palkia is both Dragon-type and Water-type, so ice moves only deal neutral damage. Therefore, the only viable counters in terms of typing are the Dragon or Fairy types.

Fortunately, there are other common fairies that do well against Palkia. Both Granbull and Sylveon can destroy Palkia with Charm spam. Mega Altaria is also a good option for anyone who has the mega energy to spare.
