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

As Mega Swampert’s counters consist almost exclusively of Grass types, the Poison type move Sludge Wave is a bit of a problem. I say a bit of a problem because the move isn’t fantastic and you should be able to power through without much issue if you do happen to come across a Mega Swampert that has Sludge Wave. Keep an eye out though, you may need to dodge or bring more trainers along. The rest of the moves shouldn’t pose much of an issue.
