Feraligatr raid counters
Feraligatr raid counters are easy to come by. You should look at mainly using one of two types, either your fast Electric types for heavy dodging heavy hitting Grass types like Exeggutor or Victreebel.
|Weakness Electric Grass||Boosted by Rainy|
Choosing Feraligatr counters can be slightly tricky depending on its moveset, with three different variations of what counters to choose based on what its attacks are. You cannot take Feraligatr with a grain of salt and assume that you can only use Grass or Electric type Pokémon no matter its moveset.
Counters Based on Feraligatr Movesets
When it comes time to making your counters team, take caution of Feraligatr’s following moves:
- Bite Dark (Fast)
- Waterfall Water (Fast)
- Ice Beam Ice (Charged, 2 bars)
- Hydro Pump Water (Charged, 1 bar)
- Crunch Dark (Charged, 3 bars)
Like said previously, Feraligatr has to be handled in one of a few different ways, using mainly Electric or Grass types depending on its moveset.
|Bite Dark||Ice Beam Ice||Raikou, Zapdos, Manectric, Jolteon, and other Electric type counters|
|Bite Dark||Hydro Pump Water||Exeggutor, Victreebel, and other Grass type counters|
|Bite Dark||Crunch Dark||Raikou, Exeggutor, Groudon and any Electric or Grass type counters|
|Waterfall Water||Ice Beam Ice||Raikou, Zapdos, Manectric, Jolteon, and other Electric type counters|
|Waterfall Water||Hydro Pump Water||Exeggutor, Victreebel, and other Grass type counters|
|Waterfall Water||Crunch Dark||Exeggutor, Victreebel, and Other Grass type counters|
Additional Feraligatr Counters
If you are unable to catch the Pokémon stated above, these are a few different backups or alternatives you can use in your next Feraligatr Raid.
- Ampharos with Charge Beam Electric / Zap Cannon Electric
- Vileplume with any Grass type moveset
- Ho-Oh with Extrasensory Psychic / Solar Beam Grass
- Rayquaza with Dragon Tail Dragon / Outrage Dragon
- Mewtwo with Confusion Psychic / Shadow Ball Ghost
Since we can see that Feraligatr can be managed in one of two ways, there are two kinds of weather you should avoid depending on what moveset it uses.
If you are stuck using Electric types mainly, you can wait until Rainy weather appears, although this would also boost Feraligatr as well, so you should really only wait until Rainy weather if Feraligatr does not have a dual Water type moveset. Otherwise relying on weather boost for your Electric types is useless. Aside from this, you should avoid raiding in Snow weather unless if you want to take the risk of Feraligatr carrying Ice Beam Ice in its arsenal.
If you generally end up using Grass types, you should wait until Sunny or [clear] weather and completely avoid Rainy and Fog weather. This will help to boost your Grass type counters and at the same time, you can avoid having Feraligatr’s Water and Dark type moves from being boosted.
