Pokemon Go will have you facing off against challenging raid Pokemon throughout your journeys outdoors. If one of these is Blaziken, you are going to need to have some strong teammates available to you. Blaziken can be a tall order if you don’t have the right setup available. You don’t need to fear, because we’ll teach you what its weaknesses are and how to counter it in this guide.
Blaziken Weakness & Counters
Blaziken is a Fire and Fighting Pokemon, which makes it have weaknesses against Flying, Ground, Water, and Psychic. All of these types are equally strong against them, so any high level Pokemon you have that features them will be at least viable.
What makes Blaziken a tall order for players is what it is resistant against! This includes Steel, Fire, Grass, Ice, Dark, and Bug types. That makes up quite a bit of Pokemon, so avoid any of those, particularly if they are weak to Fire or Fighting moves.
As for specific counters for Blaziken, you can bring Pokemon like Mewtwo, Hoopa – Unbound, Moltres, Espeon, Alakazam, Kyogre, Kingler, Gardevoir, and Swampert. These are all a mix of Psychic and Water types that should hopefully lay waste to Blaziken.
Shadow versions are generally the best option for each Pokemon. If you have mega versions of Blastoise or Pidgeot, they will also work well on a team against Blaziken.
- Mewtwo – Confusion/Psystrike (Other Psychic moves work fine)
- Hoopa (Unbound) – Confusion/Psychic
- Moltres – Wing Attack/Sky Attack
- Espeon – Confusion/Psychic
- Alakazam – Confusion/Psychic
- Kyogre – Waterfall/Surf
- Kingler – Bubble/Crabhammer
- Gardevoir – Confusion/Psychic
- Swampert – Water Gun/Hydro Cannon
- Mega Blastoise – Water Gun/Hydro Cannon
- Mega Pidgeot – Gust/Brave Bird
You are likely going to run through multiple Pokemon in your encounter with a raid Blaziken, so make sure you have a full team that at least can perform somewhat well against them. If you run out of options, you can always fill it up with whatever high level Psychic, Water, Flying, or Ground types that you have.
