Best Mega Tyranitar Raid Counters in 2023

Pokemon Trainers, the Pokemon GO Adventure Week is currently underway in Pokemon Go. The Pokemon GO Adventure Week event will run from Thursday, July 27, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. to Wednesday, August 2, 2023, at 8:00 p.m. local time. During the event, trainers will be able to encounter fossil Pokemon and battle against Regidrago and Mega Tyranitar and potentially encounter their shiny variations if victorious; this is the debut of Mega Tyranitrar in Pokemon Go.

Trainers who play the game during the event will receive 2X for spinning Pokestops, 5x XP for spinning a Pokestop for the first time, and only have to walk 1/2 the distance to hatch eggs. A free challenge is available giving players the option to either explore new areas or catch fossil Pokemon.

With that in mind, let’s dive into the best Mega Tyranitrar raid counters:

Mega Tyranitrar Raid Counters

Going into the Mega Tyranitrar raid, trainers will need a team of Pokemon with type effective moves, well-rounded Pokemon, or high attack stats. Overall, Mega Tyranitrar is a heavy hitting rock-type Pokemon. Thankfully it is easy to take down due to its vulnerabilities and below average stamina (HP) stat.

The raid can be completed by a team of 3 to 8 trainers; a team of 5 to 12 trainers can take it down quicker and a team of 12 to 20 trainers can burn through it making a better completionist bonus.

Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Lopunny, Mega Blaziken, Mega Venusaur, and Mega Blastoise will make the battle a lot easier for most trainers. Ultimately, you will want to use Fairy, Bug, Fighting (2X), Grass, Ground, Steel, and Water-type Pokemon. Be careful, because the raid can be difficult if using Dark, Fire, Flying, Ghost, Normal, Posion, Psychic-Types.

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.

Primary Fighting Types & Moves:
  • Mega Blaziken – Counter& Focus Blast
  • Conkeldurr – Counter & Dynamic Punch
  • Machamp- Counter & Dynamic Punch
  • Terrakion – Double Kick & Sacred Sword
