There are several Legendary Pokémon you can fight against in Pokémon Go. Palkia is one of the strongest choices, and this Pokémon rarely appears in five-star raids. You want to add it to your collection to use it in PvP battles, especially in the Master League. Before you can do this, you need to defeat him, probably with a small group of friends. These are all of Palkia's weaknesses and the best Pokémon counters in Pokémon Go.
All the weaknesses of Palkia
Palkia is a Dragon and Water type Pokémon. It is weak against Dragon and Fairy-type attacks, but is resistant to Fire, Water, and Steel-type moves. We highly recommend that you lean on Dragon-type weaknesses due to the number of Pokémon choices you have to beat him.
The best Pokémon tokens
The best Pokémon you can use to counter Palkia in five-star raids are Rayquaza, Dragonite, and Garchomp.
Rayquaza is another Legendary Dragon and Flying-type Pokémon. You don't usually use Rayquaza too often in PvP battles, given its stats and moveset, but it's an excellent choice when it comes to using it in five-star raids against other Pokémon. Palkia is a good opportunity to use a Rayquaza if you have one available. The best moveset to teach Rayquaza is the fast moving dragon tail and fast moving indignation.
Next, we have Dragonite, another Dragon and Flying-type Pokémon. Although this Pokémon is not legendary, it is difficult to catch in the mobile game. You can usually find Dragonite featured in most Ultra and Master league competitions. It is also a solid PvE Pokémon and is a good choice to use against Palkia. The best moveset to teach Dragonite is the fast moving dragon tail and the loaded moving dragon tail.
The final choice we will recommend for a Palkia five-star raid is the Dragon and Ground-type Pokémon, Garchomp. Previously, Garchomp was a little harder to catch, but many trainers should have a handful on hand after the Community Day event. Garchomp is a solid choice for both PvE and PvP battles. The best set of moves to teach Garchomp is the swift movement of the dragon's tail and the indignation of the charge move.
You will need a full team of six Pokémon to use against Palkia. We highly recommend using these choices during combat as well.
- Alolan Exeggutor
- Mega ampharos
- Mega gyarados
- Mega X Charizard
- Mega and Charizard
After defeating Palkia, you have a chance to capture him. There is also a chance to meet the brilliant version of Palki.
