Virizion is one of the many Legendary Pokémon that you can encounter in Pokémon Go. You will be able to find it in five-star raids for a limited time and you will be able to fight it with a small team of friends. You want to make sure you take advantage of its specific weaknesses and use the best Pokémon you can against it. Here are all Virizion's weaknesses and the best Pokémon to counter it in Pokémon Go.
All the weaknesses of Virizion
Virizion is a Grass and Fighting type Pokémon. It will be weak against Fairy, Fire, Flying, Ice, Poison and Psychic-type attacks. But it is resistant to Dark, Electric, Grass, Ground, Rock, and Water-type moves. Among the choices, we highly recommend using Fire, Flying, and Fairy-type Pokémon against it in raids.
The best Pokémon to fight Virizion
The best Pokémon to use against Virizion include Lugia, Togekiss and Zacian.
Lugia is another Legendary Pokémon that you can use against Virizion and is Flying and Psychic-type. It has a diverse move set with Flying and Psychic-type moves that can do heavy damage against Virizion. The best moveset for this Pokémon during the raid is the extrasensory fast movement and the charged moves aeroblast and sky attack.
Next, we have Togekiss, a common Pokémon that many trainers see in the Master League. It is a Flying and Fairy-type Pokémon, typically the perfect counterweight to many Dragon-type Pokémon, but perfect for battling Virizion. The best move set Togekiss can use is the quick move spell and moves loaded with dazzling glow and flamethrower.
The last Pokémon we will recommend is Zacian, a Fairy-type. It is one of the strongest Fairy-type Pokémon right now and is perfect for fighting Virizion. The best move set you can give Zacian is the quick move growl and charged moves play a rough and wild charge.
You will need a full Pokémon squad to fight Virizion. These are some of the other choices you can use to compile the rest of your Pokémon roster.
