Best Mega Latias Raid Counters in 2022

Mega Latios Raid and Mega Latias Raid

Yet another new event and raid has arrived in Pokemon Go, so we prepped up a guide for the Best Mega Latias Raid Counters in 2022.

Our fellow gamers, were you happy with the Mega Kangaskhan raid event this past weekend? If so, then you are in luck because the first Legendary Mega raid has to come to Pokemon GO.  This is part of Niantics’ way of promoting their Mega Energy changes. This week’s event is called Pokemon Air Adventures; from May 3rd to May 10th, 2022, Mega Latias and Mega Latios will appear in Mega Legendary raids.

In case you missed the changes to Mega Evolution, here they are. After Mega evolving a Pokemon for the first time, any subsequent time you’ll be able to Mega evolve that Pokemon without having to use Mega Energy; however, there will be a cooldown between the time it can Mega Evolve, but that rest period can be shortened by using Mega energy.

Now check out our Mega Latias raid guide below to learn the best raid counters!

Mega Latias Raid Counters

Going into the Mega Latias Raid, trainers will need a defensive team of Pokemon or type advantage Pokemon. Overall, Mega Latias is one of the first two Mega Legendary Raid Pokemon. The Mega Latias raid can be easily completed by a team of four to six trainers with type advantage Pokemon. A team of eight to twenty players will easily take it down and grant a better completionist bonus.

Using Mega Pokémon such as Mega Gengar or Mega Latias will make trainer’s lives easier. Ultimately, you will want to use dragon, ghost, ice, bug, dark, or fairy-type Pokémon if you want to beat Mega Latias. Be careful, because the Mega Latios raid can be difficult if using fighting, poison, dragon-type Pokémon.

Here are the best counters to overcome the Mega Latias. Some of these recommendations can be substituted out for shadow Pokémon or Pokémon with type advantage or a better move set.
