From Tuesday, May 10 until Wednesday, May 25, Mega Blastoise will be available to battle and catch in Pokemon Go. This is a great chance for Pokemon Go trainers to obtain enough Mega Energy to Mega Evolve their Blastoise into one of the more powerful Water types in the game.
Pokemon Go Mega Blastoise Counters
Mega Blastoise is weak to Electric and Grass-type attacks. There are plenty of Mega Pokemon of both types that will help trainers take down this Water-type easily and effectively.
But which one is right for you? It all depends on what team you wish to bring into battle. If you’re looking to bring an all-Electric team you’ll want to bring either Mega Manectric or Mega Ampharos.
To round out your team behind Mega Manectric or Ampharos, Zekrom, Electivire, Zapdos and Thunderus are all great options as they pack a powerful punch and take neutral to most of Mega Blastoise’s attacks — with only a few exceptions.
If Grass types are your choice, then Mega Venusaur or Mega Abomasnow is the way to go. Roserade and Sceptile are great Grass-type options to pair alongside Mega Venusaur or Abomasnow.
However, in Electric types may be the easiest way to go as there are way more powerful options and are not weak to any of Mega Blastoise’s attacks. Of course, it’s all about what Pokemon each trainer has and personal preference.
Here’s a list of great counters for Mega Blastoise in Pokemon Go.
|Mega Manectric||Thunder Fang and Wild Charge|
|Mega Venusaur||Vine Whip and Frenzy Plant|
|Mega Ampharos||Volt Switch and Zap Cannon|
|Mega Abomasnow||Razor Leaf and Energy Ball|
|Zekrom||Charge Beam and Wild Charge|
|Electifire||Thunder Shock and Wild Charge|
|Therian Forme Thunderus||Volt Switch and Thunderbolt|
|Zapdos||Thunder Shock and Thunderbolt|
|Roserade||Razor Leaf and Grass Knot|
|Sceptile||Bullet Seed and Frenzy Plant|
Pokemon Go Mega Blastoise Moveset
Being a Water-type, Mega Blastoise will have access to a variety of different moves of that type.
Water Gun is Mega Blastoise’s main attacking move, but Bite – a Dark-type attack – is also a Fast Attack option for the Mega. Any Grass-type trainers bring into battle will resist Water Gun — as well as Mega Ampharos — while Bite will be neutral to all of the above counter options.
For its Charged Attacks, Hydro Pump is its most powerful move but being a Water move will be resisted by all Grass types brought into battle. However, Grass types will need to be wary of Ice Beam which Mega Blastoise can also know. Mega Abomasnow is the only one that will be hit only neutrally by it. Mega Ampharos’ Dragon typing does give it an Ice weakness so that’s something to keep in mind.
