Lickitung Raid 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.

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Lick Ghost
  • Zen Headbutt Psychic
  • Hyper Beam Normal
  • Stomp Normal

*Lickitung won’t learn its legacy move, Body Slam, during this event.

Zen Headbutt deals super-effective damage to your Fighting types but your top counters should be able to fight their way through Lickitung easily with those new tier 1 raid stats.

Stay safe and have fun, trainers!

Author & tags

I enjoy drinking coffee and going for walks if I can muster the energy. I mostly spend time shiny hunting in mainline Pokémon games. My favourite Pokémon is Falinks, and I'm still in disbelief that it was added to GO like a year or two early. Empoleon is a close second, though.
