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 said, if you have the shadow form of a listed raid counter Pokémon powered up and TMed, use it.

Moveset Analysis

If I’m being honest, none of Mega Sceptile’s moves threaten any of its counters in any significant way aside from Dragon Claw. If Mega Sceptile has Dragon Claw your counters with Dragon typing will suffer more damage. I’m looking at you Kyurem. Aside from that, bring Ice types and you’ll be fine.
