Amoongus is extremely resilient against many types, but it also has a wide variety of types it is extremely effective against. Its Grass/Poison-type combination gives it plenty of coverage and maneuvers against these types.
What are the best Pokémon Scarlet & Violet counters to Amoongus?
Corviknight is one of the best Amoongus counters. Corviknight's Steel/Flying-type combination makes it completely immune to Poison attacks, while Amoongus' Grass-type attacks will only deal quarter damage. Scizor is another Steel-type Pokémon that outperforms Amoongus.
Scovillain, Skeledirge, Talonflame, and Houndoom are good counters, thanks to their Fire type. They will withstand Amoongus' Grass-type assaults, although you have to be careful about its cover moves. Tinkaton can also be a major threat to Amoongus if you teach it the Ice Hammer egg move.
