Galarian Weezing Counters

Galarian Weezing

The two Best Galarian Weezing counters are the ever useful, but legacy, Psystrike Mewtwo and Meteor Mash Metagross. Galarian Weezing is a dual Fairy Poison type, is boosted by Cloudy weather, and has weaknesses to the following types: Steel, Ground, Psychic.

As a Tier 4, its stat composition of 174 Attack, 197 Defense, and 9000 Stamina brings its raid boss CP to 26106. With these stats, it makes for a tricky Tier 4 trio. It can be duoed if you use legacy Mewtwo and Metagross. You can catch a Galarian Weezing Raid boss with the following CPs:

  • 1242 – 1310 (Unboosted Level 20 raid catch)
  • 1553 – 1637 (Boosted Level 25 raid catch in Cloudy)

Galarian Weezing Counters

The following table lists the best Galarian Weezing counters in Pokémon GO. Italics indicate legacy Movesets. Generally, their usefulness is based on this legacy Moveset.

Supreme Galarian Weezing Raid Counters
  • Psycho Cut Psychic
  • Confusion Psychic
  • Psystrike Psychic
  • Psychic Psychic
You can assume that, if anything is weak to Psychic, Mewtwo will make an amazing counter. There is no question, it is the best Psychic type in the game. It has no weakness to any of Galarian Weezing’s moves. In the case of Mewtwo vs Galarian Weezing – Psycho Cut/Psystrike is the Number 1 Moveset; however, if you missed Psystrike then Confusion/Psychic is Number 2. Either way, Mewtwo is King
Metagross Bullet Punch Steel Meteor Mash Steel
Meteor Mash Metagross does some mean work in Raids. In this case, it comes in just behind a Confusion/Psychic Mewtwo. If you’re lucky enough to have a few of with Meteor Mash go ahead and use them; however, if you aren’t so lucky a Zen Headbutt/Psychic Metagross is still good, but would drop down to the same level as Jirachi. Although Steel resists almost all of Galarian Weezing’s Moves – WATCH OUT for Overheat as Metagross will take a large hit from this Fire-type move.
Excellent Galarian Weezing Raid Counters
Jirachi Confusion Psychic Doom Desire Steel
The latest Mythical Pokèmon to grace our Dexes. Jirachi has great utility across the board. While it would work wonders on Galarian Weezing, that may not be a reason for all trainers to retire their one and only Jirachi from Great or Ultra League PvP. While Jirachi packs a punch, and has a nice bulk, it is outgunned (but not outlasted) by the ever Glass Cannons of Espeon, Alakazam, and Gallade. Just as Metegross’s Steel-type makes it week to Overheat, while resisting all the other moves, Jirachi takes increased damage from Fire-type moves.
Dialga Metal Claw Steel Iron Head Steel
This enigmatic Dragon seems to have proven quite useful. Although Dragon Pokèmon aren’t the usual goto against Fairy Pokèmon, the strong Steel Moves and STAB that Dialga enjoys a spot on this list. In addition, typically a Fairy Charge Move would spell disaster for a Dragon the dual typing of Steel negates any weakness to Fairy Moves. The same is the case for Fire Moves. Its power and resistance to both Normal and Poison moves makes it very useful.
Latios Zen Headbutt Psychic Psychic Psychic
Another Dragon to show up on this list. With his strong Psychic Moveset, STAB, and Super Effectiveness against Poison this Dragon can hold its own. Unfortunately, it will take a hit from Play Rough, but unlike most preceding it on the list will resist Overheat.
Excadrill Metal Claw Steel Drill Run Ground
Another new player to show up on this list. If you’ve been lucky enough to encounter and earn sufficient Candy for this Pokèmon, it will definitely come in handy. Unfortunately, its Ground typing won’t save it from a weakness to Fire, but it will increase its resistance to Poison yet another stage. That means Poison Move do just under 25% damage!
Good Galarian Weezing Raid Counters
Celebi Confusion Psychic Psychic Psychic
Poor man’s Jirachi, without the resistances of Steel-type.
Latias Zen Headbutt Psychic Psychic Psychic
Poor man’s Latias.
Regigigas Zen Headbutt Psychic Giga Impact Normal
If you have one and want to burn some Rare Candy and Stardust. Trust me it’s really not worth it.
Glassy Galarian Weezing Raid Counters
This trio can and will pack a punch, but will not last very long at all. Alakazam also drops from 1 to 3 if you don’t have one with Psychic.
Alakazam Confusion Psychic
Espeon Confusion Psychic Psychic Psychic
Gallade Confusion Psychic Psychic Psychic

Other options that aren’t too bad

  • Azelf (Confusion Psychic, Futuresight Psychic)
  • Gengar (Lick Ghost, Psychic Psychic) – do not use without Psychic
  • Scizor (Bullet Punch Steel, Iron Head Steel) – extremely combustible, double weak to Fire
  • Groudon (Mud Shot Ground, Earthquake Ground)
  • Garchomp (Mud Shot Ground, Earthquake Ground)
  • Rhyperior (Mud Slap Ground, Earthquake Ground
  • Heatran (Fire Spin Fire, Iron Head Steel)

Galarian Weezing Moves

Fast Move Charge Move
  • Tackle Normal (fast)
  • Sludge Poison (3 bar)
  • Hyper Beam Normal (1 bar)
  • Play Rough Fairy (2 bar)
  • Overheat Fire (1 bar)

As can be seen from this table Steel Pokèmon resit all the moves except Overheat, which they are week to. In other words, don’t use Steel counters against Overheat – especially in the Sunny weather.

Weather Effects

Weather Pro Attacker Pro Terrakion
Sunny Boosted Ground Boosted Overheat Fire
Partly Cloudy Boosted Tackle Normal and Hyper Beam Normal
Cloudy Level 25 Galarian Weezing Boosted Sludge Poison and Play Rough Fairy
Snow Boosted Steel
Windy Boosted Psychic

As you can see raiding it in Cloudy weather, will boost 2 different Charge Moves, it will reward the work with a higher level Galarian Weezing to catch. The two more rare conditions – Windy or Snow – will definitely make the battle easier. Good news/bad news is the Northern Hemisphere is now seeing a lot more Snow in-game.
