Weezing (Galarian)

The two Best (non-shadow/non-mega) 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 3, its stat composition of 174 Attack, 197 Defense, and 3,600 Stamina brings its raid boss CP to 16,511, or a very manageable solo for higher level trainers. If you aren’t sure if you can manage stick to groups of 2+. 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

Since Shadow Pokémon are extremely expensive to power up and require specific events to remove Frustration with a Charge TM, they will NOT be listed as raid counters in this article. That being said, if you have the shadow form of a listed raid counter Pokémon powered up and TMed, use it.

The following table lists the best Galarian Weezing counters in Pokémon GO.

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 Weezing
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.

Shiny Galarian Weezing became available August 2021 as part of Ultra Unlock Part 3.
