When choosing your team to face off against Charizard remember this; use double Rock type move Pokémon only. Want to be a rebel and use something other than that? No, just don’t. Don’t be that guy/gal. Seriously though, if you insist on being different, use a Kyogre.
When it comes time to making your counters team, take caution of Charizard’s following moves:
If you are unable to catch the Pokémon stated above, these are a few different backups or alternatives you can use in your next Charizard Raid.
Since we can see that Charizard can be managed quite well using practically the same counters no matter its moveset, you should probably pick your counters based on the weather.
Should you find yourself having a hard time, your best option is to wait until Rainy weather appears and use your Water and Electric types, this will give you a well-needed advantage over Charizard, and so it should be able to go down with fewer trainers.
If rain is hard to come by where you are, try to go for Partly Cloudy weather and use your Rock type counters, the only thing is that unless you are looking for a weather boosted Charizard, we recommend you do not raid in Sunny weather, but if you have a team of trainers by your side, take that Charizard down!
