You will fight against different Pokémon during your time in Pokémon Go, fighting them in the Battle League or in raids. Raid Pokémon are among the strongest fighters you can face and are extremely resilient, even for a single player. If you're looking to defeat Cloyster, you may be able to do it yourself, but having a backup friend is extremely helpful. In this guide, we'll cover all of Cloyster's weaknesses and the best Pokémon counters in Pokémon Go.
All the weak points of Cloyster
Cloyster is a Ice and Water type Pokémon. It is weak against Electric, Fighting, Grass, and Rock-types, but is resistant to Ice and Water-type Pokémon. Therefore, you want to avoid these two types as much as possible, mainly by leaning on the Electric, Fighting or Rock types. Grass-types are useful, but are weak to Ice-type attacks.
The best Pokémon fight Cloyster
The best Pokémon to counter Cloyster are Lucario, Zarude, and Magnezone.
Lucario is a Fighting and Steel type Pokémon. He is a powerful fighter perfect for fighting Cloyster, taking advantage of his Fighting-type weakness with many attacks and a formidable defense. The best moveset to teach Lucario is the fast move counter and charged moves, the aura sphere, and close combat.
Then we have Zarude, the mythical Grass and Dark-type Pokémon. It is a Pokémon available to all trainers for a limited time, and comes with a fair amount of stats to make it a practical choice for this raid battle. The best moveset for Zarude is the quick whip of the vine and the charged move of the dark impulse and the whip of power.
The last choice we highly recommend is Magnezone, the Electric and Steel-type Pokémon. Like Lucario, he has incredible attack power and a mountain of defense to make it difficult to be defeated. The best move set to teach Magnezone is the quick move spark and charged moves wild charge and cannon zap.
You will need a full squad of six Pokémon to defeat Cloyster. These are some other tips you may want to consider adding to your roster for this raid battle.
