Virizion Pokémon GO Raid Counters, Shiny Virizion available

In Pokémon GO, Virizion stands out as one of the Legendary Pokémon you can battle in 5-Star Raids this November. If you’re looking to add Virizion to your collection, you’ll want to know how to bring it down with as little fuss as possible. Here’s a quick guide on what you’ll need to know.

First up, understand Virizion’s Achilles’ heel. This Pokémon is particularly vulnerable to Flying, Fairy, Ice, Poison, and Psychic moves. But it’s the Flying-type moves that really hit hard, dealing four times the damage. That’s your in. When you’re assembling your team to take on Virizion, consider bringing along Mega Rayquaza or Mega Pidgeot. They are incredibly strong with their Flying-type moves. You might also want to call on Shadow Moltres or Shadow Staraptor. And don’t overlook Rayquaza and Yveltal. They might not have the ‘Mega’ title, but they’re still heavy hitters.

Virizion Raid Counters

  • Mega Rayquaza with Air Slash and Dragon Ascent
  • Mega Pidgeot with Gust and Brave Bird
  • Shadow Moltres with Wing Attack and Sky Attack
  • Staraptor with Gust and Brave Bird
  • Rayquaza with Air Slash and Dragon Ascent

Now, we have some good news. You might encounter a shiny Virizion after a successful raid. Better yet, if you’re lucky enough to find one, it’s a surefire catch, so have your Poke Balls ready.

If you’re feeling particularly brave or just want a challenge, you might be interested to hear about a player who took Virizion on solo. With a maxed-out Mega Rayquaza, they showed this Legendary who’s boss, and there’s a video to prove it.

Lastly, remember that your window to catch Virizion is open but brief. These Raid battles are here from November 9 to November 16, 2023. So, gear up, get your counters ready, and head into battle.
