Pokemon Go Mega Altaria Raid Counters
Mega Altaria is a Dragon and Fairy-type Pokemon, the only ‘mon of this type combination in all of Pokemon Go. However, when this Pokemon is caught in Pokemon Go it’s as its usual form, which is a typical Dragon and Flying-type. To get the Dragon and Fairy-type trainers have to Mega Evolve it.
Luckily, Mega Evolving is easier than ever with the latest update. But to defeat Mega Altaria in Mega Raids quickly trainers will want to bring a lot of Poison, Steel or Ice types. Mega Altaria is weak to those three types but also to Fairy moves so keep that in mind.
Mega Gengar and Mega Beedrill are great Poison-type Mega options to bring into battle. Gengar, unfortunately, doesn’t have a Poison-type Fast Attack to utilize but having access to Sludge Bomb and the ability to power up Poison moves of other Pokemon on your team is invaluable. There aren’t a lot of Poison options to consider teaming up with these two, but Drapion and Dragalge are solid choices.
Mega Abomasnow is the Ice-type option to use as it is powerful and boosts the Ice moves of your team. To team up with Abomasnow, trainers should consider Galarian Darmanitan and Mamoswine.
Trainers looking to use Steel types should consider Metagross, Dialga and Excadrill while Fairy options are limited but Togekiss and Gardevoir are great picks. Mega Steelix is another Mega option to consider as it will boost up the Steel moves of your team, but it’s low power output puts it behind other Megas.
Here is a list of counter options for Mega Altaria in Pokemon Go.
Pokemon Go Mega Altaria Movesets
Mega Altaria’s moves are rather limited but could trip up your strategy in battle.
Peck and Sky Attack are the only Flying moves it knows but will deal massive damage against Pokemon like Mega Beedrill and Mega Abomasnow so be careful.
Dragon Breath and Dragon Pulse are Mega Altaria’s Dragon-type attack options and will deal neutral damage to most of the above counters listed above. However, Steel and Fairy types resist these attacks so be sure to consider them when selecting your team.
Steel types, aside from Dialga, resist all of Mega Altaria’s moves including Dazzling Gleam, this Mega’s lone Fairy-type attack option. This makes Steel types like Metagross and Excadrill great options.
