Pokemon GO’s Mega Gengar is ready to take everyone by storm!
You’ve probably seen by now that the spooky Mega Evolution replaced Mega Venusaur. Such a thing means that a new Mega Evolution is waiting for us and tons of new Mega Energy to collect.
But how can you grind your way to a Mega Gengar evolution of your own? The following guide will surely offer you the best tips.
Here is what you need to know.
What Should You Know About Mega Gengar
Mega Gengar is very vulnerable to Ghost-, Dark-, Psychic-, and Ground-types. All the veteran PvE Battle Raiders should know that having many top counters powered up is a must.
Also, assembling a trustworthy team is needed. High-level players will need 3-5 experienced players to takedown Mega Genger.
Mega Gengar Counters: the Best List So Far
The following list doesn’t include a few Mega Evolutions, but remember that there are tons of other regular Legendary alternatives that don’t require burning through Mega resources if you don’t have enough saved up.
Mega Pokemon will indeed increase DPS during the fight. However, they’re not necessary for success during the raids.
Amazing Mega Gengar Counters:
- Mewtwo: Psycho Cut/ Psystrike;
- Gengar (Mega): Lick/ Shadow Ball;
- Houndoom (Mega): Snarl/ Foul Play.
Fantastic Mega Genger Counters:
- Espeon: Confusion/ Psychic;
- Giratina (Origin): Shadow Claw/ Shadow Ball;
- Groudon: Mud Shot/ Earthquake;
- Excadrill: Confusion/ Psychic;
- Darkrai: Snarl/ Dark Pulse;
- Metagross: Zen Headbutt/ Psychic;
- Landorus: Mud Shot/ Earth Power.
There are many other good counters out there, but if you want to power through the Mega Raids without a big deal, it’s better to use the mentioned above counters.
Also, remember that a closer look at every Pokemon’s moveset and current power level is also useful. It might be necessary to burn through some Candy, TMs, and Stardust, to properly get ready every counter.
