Best Pokémon to counter Terrakion

The best Pokémon you can use against Terrakion in the raid are Metagross, Zarude, and Excadrill.

Metagross is a Psychic and Steel-type Pokémon. It features a robust offense and defense stats, making it a worthwhile team member, and it’s incredibly flexible. You can use it anywhere in your raid lineup. The best moveset to teach Metagross is the fast move Bullet Punch and the charged attacks Meteor Mash and Earthquake.

The next Pokémon is Zarude, a mythical Dark and Grass-type Pokémon. It’s a recent arrival to Pokémon Go, but given its unique type and excellent moveset, it’s become a solid staple in the Master League. The best moveset to teach Zarude is the fast move Vine Whip and the charged attacks Power Whip and Dark Pulse.

The last Pokémon we highly recommend you use is Excadrill, a Ground and Steel-type Pokémon. Excadrill has a higher attack stat than defenses, but it’s a suitable Pokémon that you can use to do some heavy damage against Terrakion. The best moveset to teach Excadrill is the fast move Mud Slap and the charged attacks Drill Run and Rock Slide.

You’ll need a full team of six Pokémon to use against Terrakion in a raid. These are some other choices you can use to fill out the rest of your team.

  • Conkeldurr
  • Espeon
  • Garchomp
  • Hoopa
  • Kyogre
  • Lucario
  • Machamp
  • Mewtwo
  • Swampert
  • Therian Landorus

After defeating Terrakion, you’ll have a chance to capture it, and it will know the charged move Sacred Sword. There’s also a chance to catch its shiny version.
