Genesect Raid Counters

Since Genesect has attack heavy stats it should be fairly easy duo with the right counters. A worst case scenario is a really easy trio for lower lever trainers or without the perfect counters.

That being said, our recommendation is that you have 2 – 3 high level trainers for Genesect raids. For groups larger than 5, consider splitting into smaller groups for better raid rewards.
