Mega Absol is one of the many mega Pokémon you can fight in Pokémon Go. Unfortunately, you can only fight it in Mega raids at distinct times, similar to the legendary five-star Pokémon raids. Plus, a mega raid is on par with a five-star raid in terms of difficulty, so you'll want to make sure you bring the best teams possible and a few friends to help you out. In this guide, we will detail all of Mega Absol's weaknesses and the best Pokémon to counter it in Pokémon Go.
All the weaknesses of Mega Absol
Mega Absol is a Dark-type Pokémon, the same as its normal version. It will be weak against Bug, Fairy, and Fighting-type moves, but is resistant to Psychic, Dark, and Ghost-type moves. You mainly want to use Fairy and Fighting type attacks during a raid.
The best Pokémon fight Mega Absol
The best Pokémon you can use against Mega Absol in a raid are Lucario, Machamp, and Zacian.
Lucario is a Fighting and Steel type Pokémon. It has the strength to deal pretty heavy damage with its Fighting-type attacks, but it has the stamina of a Steel-type to ensure it stays in battle for a reasonable amount of time. The best moveset for Lucario to use is the fast move counter and the aura sphere of charged moves and close combat.
The next Pokémon we'll recommend is Machamp, another Fighting-type Pokémon. Unlike Lucario, Machamp has far fewer defenses, making it a more difficult Pokémon to use. But it makes up for this shortcoming with a good amount of damage. The best moveset to use for Machamp is the fast move counter and the dynamic punch and close combat loaded moves.
The last Pokémon we highly recommend is Zacian, the Legendary Fairy-type Pokémon. While a little rarer than the previous choices, it is an ideal Pokémon to use against Mega Absol, especially with its high CP value and the amount of damage it can do with its Fairy-type attacks. The best move set to teach Zacian is the quick attack with quick movement, and the charged moves play a rough and wild charge.
You will need to use a full team of six Pokémon to fight Mega Absol. These are the other Pokémon you can consider using to fill the rest of your team.

After fighting Mega Absol, you will get mega energy for it and thus have a chance to catch a normal Absol. There is a possibility of a brilliant version at the end of this fight.
