Blaziken is one of the many Pokémon you can battle against in raids in Pokémon Go. Defeating it can be challenging, so make sure you have the best team possible to beat it. In this guide, we'll cover all of Blaziken's weaknesses and the best Pokémon to counter it in Pokémon Go.
Blaziken is a Fire and Fighting-type Pokémon. It will be weak against Flying, Earth, Psychic, and Water-type moves, but is resistant to Bug, Dark, Fire, Grass, Ice, and Steel-type moves. Therefore, we highly recommend that you use Flying, Ground, and Water-type Pokémon against Blaziken.
The best Pokémon to counter Blaziken will be Rhyperior, Garchomp, and Kingler.
Rhyperior is a Rock and Ground type Pokémon. It is a Pokémon that we highly recommend for many raid battles and would be a good option to use against Rhyperior. The downside is that it could take severe damage from Blaziken's Fighting-type moves. The best moveset for Rhyperior is the fast mud-slap movement and the rock-smashing and earthquake charged moves.
Garchomp is a Dragon and Ground type Pokémon. Unlike Rhyperior, Garchomp is effective against Blaziken with no weaknesses. The problem is that Garchomp is a Dragon-type, which makes it a troublesome Pokémon to find and upgrade in Pokémon Go. The best moveset for Garchomp is the fast-moving dragon tail and moves charged with earth and earthquake energy.
Kingler is a Water-type Pokémon. While it's not the strongest Water-type Pokémon you might discover, it's a reasonably powerful choice that many trainers have likely encountered on their travels. The best move set to teach Kinlger is the fast moving bubble and crab and x-scissors charged moves.
You will need a full team of six Pokémon to beat Blaziken. Here are some other options you should consider when compiling the rest of your list.
