Mega Gengar, Mega Houndoom, Darkrai and other Dark Pokémon should be your top picks against the Lake Trio. Of course, we’ve got infographics to counter each and every one of the Lake Guardians (credits to Orange Heart):
These Pokémon are only available in their respectable regions, but you can use Remote Raiding to get one from abroad:
- Mesprit ⟶ Europe, Africa and Middle East (EMEA region)
- Uxie ⟶ Asia-Pacific (APAC region)

Shiny Goldeen and Seaking
Shiny Goldeen is making its Pokémon GO debut, which unlocks shiny Seaking as well! They may not be everyone’s cup of lake tea, but we think a lot of players will enjoy shiny hunting them.

Goldeen will be hatching from 5 km Eggs. If you’re lucky, you might even hatch a Shiny Goldeen!
