Mega Manectric Raid Counters

Going into the Mega Manectric Raid, trainers will need Pokemon with high defensive stats or efficient attacks. Overall, the Mega Manectric raid is one of the more difficult Mega Pokemon to take down in Pokemon Go due to limited weaknesses. The raid can be easily completed by a team of 3 to 5 trainers; a team of 6 to 20 trainers will kill it easily and makes for a better completionist bonus. Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Steelix or Mega Aerodactyl will make trainers’ lives easier. Ultimately, you will want to use ground-type Pokemon. Be careful, because the raid can be difficult if using water or flying-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.


  • Mega Steelix – Dragon Tail & Earthquake
  • Groudon – Mud Shot & Earthquake
  • Excadrill – Mud-Slap & Drill Run
  • Landorus – Mud Shot & Earth Power
  • Rhyperior – Mud-Slap & Earthquake
  • Garchomp – Mud Shot & Earthquake


  • Mega Aerodactyl – Rock Throw & Earth Power
  • Rhydon – Mud-Slap & Earthquake
  • Krookodile – Mud-Slap & Earthquake
  • Golurk – Mud-Slap & Earth Power
  • Mamoswine – Mud-Slap & Earthquake
  • Donphan – Mud-Slap & Earthquake
