You will see all kinds of different types of Pokémon as you travel through Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl. Many Pokémon you fight against will be easy to read when it comes to the advantages and disadvantages of their type, but from time to time you will face a rather questionable one. If you're not sure how to handle Medicham in battle, here are the best counters you should go with.



What is Medicham weak against?

Medicham is a fighting and psychic Pokémon, which makes it weak against Flying, Fairy and Ghost-type moves. Some of the best moves you could use against it are Dazzling Gleam, Fly, Phantom Force, Shadow Ball, Shadow Force, and Moon Blast. If you don't have any Pokémon with Flying, Fairy, or Ghost moves, you can purchase Dazzling Gleam from the Veilstone City Department Store.

On the contrary, it can handle Rock and Fighting attacks quite well. Its Fighting and Psychic roots will cause it to deal very heavy damage to any Pokémon on your team of these types.

Best counters

With Medicham's weakness against Fairy Pokémon, we highly recommend countering it with Clefable, Mr. Mime, Mew, Palkia, Dialga, or Jirachi due to their ability to learn powerful Fairy moves. Blissey would normally be one we recommend, but Medicham can quickly take down even the most armored Blissey with a strong combat attack. Gengar, Mismagius, Spiritomb and Drifblim are very powerful Ghost tokens. Also, if you own a Legendary Bird Pokémon or a powerful Dragon-type, you can take any of Medicham's attacks and survive.
