Mega Venusaur‘ Raid Counters
Going into the Mega Venusaur Raid, trainers will need Pokemon with high defensive stats, fast attacks, and high HP. Overall, Mega Venusaur is one of the easiest Mega Pokemon to take down in Pokemon Go with a well-rounded team. The raid can be easily completed by a team of 3 to 5 trainers; a team of 6 to 20 trainers is overkill but makes for a better completionist bonus. Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Charizard or Mega Houndoom will make trainer’s lives easier. Ultimately, you will want to use fire, flying, psychic, or ice-type Pokemon. Be careful, because the raid can be difficult if using fighting, water, electric, fairy, or grass-type Pokemon. So don’t use Tapu Koko.
