Banette will appear in three-star raids for a limited time in Pokémon Go. This is a perfect opportunity to take him down and capture him at the end of the fight. As it's a three-star raid, most players should be able to do it on their own, but you'll need to use the best Pokémon and understand Banette's weaknesses to have the best chance. This guide will break down all of Banette's weaknesses and the best Pokémon to use against her in Pokémon Go.
All of Banette's weaknesses
Banette is a Ghost-type Pokémon. It is weak against Dark and Ghost-type attacks, but is resistant to Fighting, Normal, Insect, and Poison-type moves. You want to use only Dark and Ghost-type Pokémon, giving you the ability to mix and match your team during this raid.
The best Pokémon against Banette
During these raid battles, the best Pokémon you can use against Banette include Weavile, Gengar, and Chandelure.
Weavile is a Dark and Ice-type Pokémon. It is one of the tough Ice-type Pokémon that you can find in Pokémon Go, making it a suitable Pokémon to use that can do great damage against Banette and withstand many of its attacks. The best moveset for Weavile during this raid is the quick move growl and foul play and avalanche loaded moves.
The next Pokémon is Gengar, a Poison and Ghost type. Gengar is usually a glass cannon that you have to use carefully during most PvP battles, and during this raid, he is no exception. However, she is excellent at doing a lot of damage to Banette in a short amount of time. The best moveset for Gengar during this raid is the fast moving shadow claw and shadow ball and shadow punch charged moves.
The last Pokémon we will recommend you to use is Chandelure, a Ghost and Fire type. Chandelure is a highly recommended Pokémon that we often breed for various raid battles. It is the ideal choice for all players eager to fight against Ghost and Dark-type Pokémon. The best move set Chandelure can have during this battle is the Incinerate fast move and the Shadow Ball Charged and Flame Charged Moves.
You will need to use a full team of six Pokémon to defeat Banette. So these are some additional recommendations we need to provide to the rest of your squad for this raid.
