The Legendary Groudon is one of Pokémon Go’s strongest ground-type Pokémon, making it a must-have in raids. Our Pokémon Go Groudon raid guide explains Groudon’s best counters, weaknesses, and best movesets.
Groudon best counters and weaknesses
To take Groudon down, build up a team of Pokémon with ice-, water-, or grass-type moves. The best Groudon counters and movesets are:
- Kyogre with Waterfall and Hydro Pump
- Galarian Darmatian with Ice Fang and Avalanche
- Kingler with Bubble and Crab Hammer
- Roserade with Razor Leaf and Grass Knot
Different weather boosts different types, too. Sunny or clear weather boosts grass-type moves, snow boosts ice-type moves, and rain boosts water-type moves.
Groudon best moveset
Once you have a Groudon, set it up with Mud Shot and Earthquake to make it a great ground-type attacker. Using Solar Beam as a charge move is actually quite good if you need a grass-type attacker.
Can Groudon be Shiny?
Lucky players may encounter a Shiny Groudon. If you do see a Shiny, you’ll catch it on the first ball you hit it with, so use a Pinap Berry to score some extra candy.
