Under ideal conditions such as Sunny weather and high-level counters, it is quite possible to duo Mega Manectric. However, in order to ensure a successful raid, 3-5 trainers are recommended.

This article will charge you up with the knowledge to pick the right counters to beat Mega Manectric and add this electrifying Pokémon to your mega evolution roster. With that being said, let’s get into the guide!


Mega Manectric 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.

Manectric Obtainable CP values from the Raid

You cannot catch Manectric in its mega evolved form from the raid. The mega raid boss is always catchable in its base form and as such, the CP ranges are for a regular Manectric.

Manectric can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 1134- 1337 CP at level 20, no weather boost
  • 1417- 1672 CP at level 25 with Rainy weather boost

Mega Manectric Moveset Analysis

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Charge Beam Electric
  • Snarl Dark
  • Wild Charge Electric
  • Thunder Electric
  • Flame Burst Fire

The combination of Charge Beam with either Wild Charge and Thunder is a treat for Garchomp as it triple resists Electric type attacks. In any case, Electric type moves are naturally resisted by Ground types.

Snarl doesn’t do too much damage but it can make Mega Manectric get to its charged moves quickly.

Flame Burst lacks STAB, lacks raw power and is also resisted by most Ground types. However, it does super-effective damage to Excadrill, a top counter.


How Meta Relevant is Mega Manectric?

Mega Manectric will have the highest non-shadow Electric type DPS in the game, even more than Zekrom but with lesser TDO.

BONUS: The shiny form is absolutely gorgeous!


Conclusion

With decent moves, average bulk and high chances of the ideal weather in most parts of the world, Mega Manectric shouldn’t be too challenging,

And it’s totally worth it!

With a monstrous 286 ATK stat and the highest non-shadow DPS in the game, you simply can’t miss this amazing Pokémon!

So let’s charge up ourselves and make our Mega Manectric shock the meta!
