Guzzlord Raid Counters
Going into the Guzzlord raid, trainers will need a fast-attacking team of Pokemon with type effective moves or high attack stats. Overall, Guzzlord is a high HP Ultra Beast Pokemon. Thankfully it is easy to take down due to its vulnerabilities and low defensive Stat.
The raid can be easily completed by a team of 1 to 3 trainers; a team of 4 to 8 trainers can take it down quicker and a team of 8 to 20 trainers can burn through it making a better completionist bonus.
Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Alakazam, Mega Banette, or Mega Latias will make the battle a lot easier for most trainers. Ultimately, you will want to use Fairy, Fighting, Dragon, Ice, and Bug-type Pokemon. Be careful, because the raid can be difficult if using Ghost, Psychic, Dragon, Steel, Fire, Water, or Grass -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 Alakazam – Counter & Dazzling Gleam
- Gardevoir – Charm & Dazzling Gleam
- Togekiss – Charm & Dazzling Gleam
- Xurkitree – Thunder Shock & Dazzling Gleam
