Top Mareanie 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.

With that being said, here are the best counters for Mareanie in Pokémon GO:

Mareanie Movepool

Mareanie has access to this set of moves as a raid boss:

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Poison Sting Poison
  • Bite Dark
  • Gunk Shot Poison
  • Sludge Wave Poison
  • Muddy Water Water

Mareanie’s evolution, Toxapex, is a meta-shifting Pokémon that will make a splash in Great League (more info here). To sum it up, it is bulkier than Azumarill and G. Stunfisk, and it has access to Muddy Water which can flip hard counters like Skarmory.

Toxapex is also a great Gym Defender, and has good synergy with Chansey and Blissey. The only downside is its weakness to Mewtwo, which is a very common generalist for bringing down gyms. That weakness can be remedied by being paired up with bulky Dark types like Umbreon and Mandibuzz, the latter of which does not have a Fighting weakness giving Chansey and Blissey better synergy.

All the best, trainers!
