Walrein is one of the many Pokémon that you can encounter as a raid boss in Pokémon Go. It is a stronger and more advanced version than the traditional Walrein, so you may encounter some difficulties trying to take it out. Therefore, we recommend that you make sure you use the best team of Pokémon you can muster to defeat him. In this guide, we'll cover all of Walrein's weaknesses and the best Pokémon that counter him in Pokémon Go.
All Walrein's weaknesses
Walrein is a Ice and Water type Pokémon. It will be weak to Electric, Fighting, Grass, and Rock-type moves, but is resistant to Ice and Water-type attacks. You mainly want to use Electric, Grass, and Rock-type Pokémon against it. Combat types are always a powerful option, but they may lack some defenses, making them a risky choice if you don't have a sturdy team.
The best Pokémon against Walrein
The best Pokémon you can use to counter Walrein include Zarude, Magnezone, and Lucario.
Zarude is a Dark and Grass-type Mythical Pokémon. It has become a powerful option to consider, especially in the Ultra and Master League PvP scene, giving it plenty of room against other Pokémon in raids. The best moveset to give Zarude is the quick whip of the vine and the charged moves whip of power and dark pulse.
Next up is Magnezone, an Electric and Steel-type Pokémon. It comes with strong attack power, Electric-type attacks and a sturdy level of defense due to the fact that it's Steel-type. We highly recommend it for a series of raid battles. The best move set to give to Mangezone is the quick movement spark, and charged moves make the cannon explode and charge wild.
For our last option we recommend Lucario, a Fight and Steel type. Like Magnezone, Lucario has the benefits of Fighting-type strength and the assistance of being Steel-type to boost its defenses, making it a notable raiding Pokémon. The best move set to give Lucario is the fast move counter and charged moves, aura sphere, and close combat.
You will need to use a full team of six Pokémon against Walrein to defeat him in a raid. These are the options you may want to consider when compiling the rest of your list.
