    Mega Raids in Pokémon Go are no joke. You and a group of Trainers must work together to take down the Mega Evolved Pokémon to gain its energy and evolve your Pokémon to their respective Mega Evolutions. You must find Mega Gengar raids randomly scattered throughout the game for those looking to receive Mega Gengar energy. Mega Gengar will appear in Mega Raids starting October 1st through October 22nd. These are all of Mega Gengar's weaknesses and the best Pokémon to beat him.



    Weaknesses of Mega Gengar

    Mega Gengar is a Ghost and Poison-type Pokémon, the same as its standard evolution. It is weak to Dark, Ghost, Earth, and Psychic-type attacks. However, it is resistant to Bug, Normal, Poison, Fairy, Grass, and Fighting-type Pokémon. Therefore, you want to avoid using any of these attacks against it during combat.

    Pokémon to counter Mega Gengar

    The best Pokémon to use in the raid battle against Mega Gengar include Mewtwo, Chandelure, and Metagross.

    Mewtwo is probably the best Pokémon to use against Mega Gengar. It is purely a Psychic-type Pokémon and, if you own the shadow version, it is easily the strongest Pokémon in the game once the frustration is removed from its moveset. During battle, the best moves your Mewtwo can use include confusion for its fast attack and psychic ball and shadow.

    Next, we recommend using Chandelure, a Ghost and Fire-type Pokémon. Ghost-type Pokémon are weak to other ghosts, making it an ideal choice. While Chandelure will be vulnerable to a handful of Mega Gengar's attacks, she can cause severe damage with the moves she can use. The best moveset for Chandelure is the fast move to incinerate and shadow ball charged moves and overheat.



    The last Pokémon we want to recommend you to use is Metagross, a Psychic and Steel type Pokémon. Metagross has a powerful attack and defense stat, making it a useful choice for any player looking to do considerable damage to Mega Gengar during the raid. The best moveset to use for Metagross is the fast moving bullet fist and the meteor and psychic charged moves.

    You must use a full team of six Pokémon to fight Mega Gengar. These are some of the other choices you may want to consider adding to your combat roster.

    • Darkrai
    • Espeon
    • excadrill
    • Garchomp
    • Giratina (Origin or Altered)
    • Groudon
    • Hoopa
    • Landorus (Therian)
    • Mega gyarados
    • Mega houndoom
    • Yveltal

    After defeating Mega Gengar, you will receive mega energy to use and there is a chance that you can capture a bright Gengar at the end of the battle.
