Mega Charizard X Raid Counters

Going into the Mega Charizard X Raid, trainers will need Pokemon with a high defensive stat and type effective attacks. Overall, Mega Charizard X is one of the easier Mega Raids to take down in Pokemon Go due to its number of weaknesses. The raid can be easily completed by a team of 3 to 5 trainers; a team of 4 to 6 trainers can take it down and a team of 6 to 20 trainers can shred through it making a better completionist bonus.

Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Aerodactyl, Mega Latios, or Mega Blastoise will make the battle a lot easier for trainers’. Ultimately, you will want to use Rock, Water, or Electric-type Pokemon. Be careful, because the raid can be difficult if using Electric, Fire, Grass, Bug, Steel, or Ice-type Pokemon.

Here are the best counters to overcoming the raid. Some of these recommendations can be substituted out for Pokemon with type advantage or a better move set.
