Groudon is one of the best attackers in Pokemon GO, so it's at the top of the list of Pokemon to catch for many Trainers. Before adding it to your team, though, you'll need to defeat it in a Raid and catch it. To do this, you'll want the best counters and knowledge of its weaknesses. 

Here's a guide to Groudon's weaknesses, the best counters, and which moves to teach it once you catch it.

Pokemon GO Groudon Weaknesses

As a pure Ground-type, Groudon is weak to three types: Grass, Ice, and Water

On the other hand, it'll resist a few types as well, so be careful not to bring them into a Groudon Raid. These types are Poison, Rock, and Electric, which it has an increased resistance to.

 

Pokemon GO Groudon Counters

To defeat Groudon in Pokemon GO, you'll want to bring the best counters into battle and exploit its weaknesses. Some of the best include the following Pokemon:  

  • Mega Venusaur (Vine Whip | Frenzy Plant)
  • Mega Blastoise (Water Gun | Hydro Cannon)
  • Mega Abomasnow (Razor Leaf/Powder Snow | Ice-type Hidden Power)
  • Mamoswine (Powder Snow | Avalanche)
  • Zarude (Vine Whip | Power Whip)
  • Kyogre (Waterfall | Surf)
  • Tapu Bulu (Bullet Seed | Grass Knot)
  • Palkia (Dragon Tail | Aqua Tail)
  • Mewtwo (Psycho Cut | Ice Beam)
  • Torterra (Razor Leaf | Frenzy Plant)

Pokemon GO Groudon Best Movesets

Groudon is not the all-time champ of the Ultra League, but it does reign supreme in the Master League, sitting among the best of the best. In PvE, it's one of the best attackers, full stop. Let's examine which moves to use in each scenario. 

In PvE, Mud Shot and Earthquake are Groudon's best moves. It'll receive the Same-Type Attack Bonus and do massive damage to its opponents. It's one of the best Ground-type attackers in the entire game, and will remain so for the foreseeable future. 

In PvP, the same moves are the best. However, Fire Punch can make for a great charged move, especially since it'll be a check on two of Groudon's weaknesses, Ice and Grass.
