If you’ve read the table above, we guess you already got a fairly solid understanding how to counter a Mawile. Fire, fire and more fire. The curious thing about Mawile is that it’s so easily countered that you can use your worst fire types and still come out on top with minimal loses.

However, we suggest to rather stick to one solid Attacker and burn through Mawile’s health pool in a breeze. Remember that a Raid Mawile can be shiny, so you potentially don’t want to skip these raids, although they are a waste of Raid Passes if you want a usable Pokemon out of a raid.

Mawile has access to the following moves:

  • Bite dark
  • Astonish ghost
  • Play Rough fairy
  • Iron Head steel
  • Vice Grip normal
