Pokemon Go Tapu Bulu Raid Guide, Weakness, Best Counters and Moves, Can Tapu Bulu be Shiny?

Trainers, Tapu Bulu is coming to Five-star Raids in April 2024, and if you want to defeat him and catch the shiny form, you must defeat this Grass and Fairy-type Pokemon first.

April 2024 promises a lot, and if you are after shiny hunting, we recommend that you participate in every fight, with every Raid Boss, because all of them can be shiny. Shiny Kartana and Shiny Celesteela make their debut in Pokemon Go, only to be replaced by Tapu Bulu and Registeel in Five-star Raids.

Tapu Bulu is not a very easy Raid Boss to defeat, and it will be best to use Poison attacks. Tapu Bulu is 2x weak to Poison attacks, so a group of Pokemon like Mega Rayquaza, Mega Beedrill, Mega Gengar, Shadow Toxicroak, and Shadow Gengar will do the job. However, we have to tell you that it is almost impossible to beat Tapu Bulu solo. But never say never, there is a first time for everything.

To make sure you beat him, aim to be a party of 3+ players. Two of you could beat them, but have a team of three just in case.

We have a list of Pokemon and moves that we think are great against this Pokemon, so let’s take a look at them below.
