Mega Lopunny’ Raid Counters

Going into the Mega Lopunny Raid, trainers will need Pokemon with high defensive stat or hard-hitting attacks. Overall, Mega Lopunny is one of the easier Mega Pokemon to take down in Pokemon Go with a team of type advantage Pokemon. The raid can be easily completed by a team of 3 to 5 trainers; a team of 6 to 20 trainers is a bit much but makes for a better completionist bonus (More Poke balls). Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Gengar or Mega Pidgeot will make trainers’ lives easier with type advantage moves. Ultimately, you will want to use fighting, psychic, flying, or fairy-type Pokemon. Be careful, because the raid can be difficult if using Ghost, Dark, Rock, and Bug-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.
