There are a ton of Pokémon that you will encounter in the wild that you will later fight in the Elite Four in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl. These Pokémon have leveled up and will test your skills and determination as you fight. Girafarig is one that you will surely have met more than once, but during the fourth battle of the Elite Four against Lucian, you will have to deal with Girafarig himself. Here are some weaknesses and tokens you can use to overcome them.



What is Girafarig weak against?

Girafarig is a Normal and Psychic Pokémon. Although normal Pokémon are usually susceptible to Fighting-type attacks, the Psychic part will negate it and deal normal damage. Instead, the Bug and Dark moves will have the maximum impact on a Girafarig. The best actions to watch out for here are Attack Order, Bug Buzz, Megahorn, X-Scissor, Crunch, and Foul Play.

When fighting a Girafarig, there are two things you will want to avoid. The first are psychic attacks because they won't do him that much damage. The second is the grass moves. Girafarig has a hidden ability called Sap Sipper which powers his attack whenever a Grass attack touches him. You will actively make it harder to win if you use a Grass move against it. Also, if you use Bite to try to make him flinch, he will only take the damage and avoid the flinching side effect.

Best counters

Our recommendations for the best Pokémon to counter Girafarig include Weaville, Tyranitar, Umbreon, Houndoom, Scyther, Pinsir, and Heracross. Also, if you have a Mew, you can teach him some powerful TMs to take down Girafarig while taking whatever he offers you.
