Best Counters To Mega Slowbro

  • Bug
  • Ghost
  • Grass
  • Electric
  • Dark

Any move that is any of the above will cause 1600% damage to the Raid boss! To ensure you have the best chance of defeating it, meet up with other trainers using the Campfire app!

There are also certain kinds of bosses that are naturally resistant to. These are:

  • Fighting
  • Steel
  • Fire
  • Water
  • Psychic
  • Ice

Any move that employs these types will cause 63% damage, which is not great when trying to overthrow the boss quickly!

  • Chandelure
  • Gengar
  • Hydreigon

  • Sceptile

This Raid boss is recommended by 5 Pokemon, because of their superior access to move types that are extremely effective against them.

Mega Slowbro has the potential to be shiny when caught! It also has some pretty good stats:

Players are now able to catch the Galarian forms of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres! Be sure to catch them as quickly as possible!

Given a current problem that results in no spawns when using Adventure Incense, it might be better to catch Dittos until its fixed, particularly since we know what disguises Ditto will use during August!
