Mega Rayquaza: Weaknesses and Counters in Pokemon Go

Mega Rayquaza, a powerful Dragon/Flying-type Pokemon, is set to debut in Mega Raids during Pokemon Go Fest 2023. This highly anticipated addition to the game will first appear at the in-person events in Osaka, London, and New York, and will then be available worldwide on August 26 during the Pokemon Go Fest: Global event.

When battling against Mega Rayquaza, it's important to know its weaknesses and the best counters to use. Mega Rayquaza is weak against Dragon, Fairy, Ice, and Rock-type attacks, with Ice-type attacks being particularly effective. On the other hand, it is resistant to Bug, Fighting, Fire, Grass, Ground, and Water-type attacks.

To defeat Mega Rayquaza, some of the best counters to consider are Pokemon that can exploit its weaknesses. If you don't have these specific counters, focus on using your strongest Pokemon that can target its weaknesses.

Getting Mega Rayquaza in Pokemon Go requires participating in the in-person Pokemon Go Fest 2023 events in London, Osaka, and New York City. You will need to defeat several Mega Rayquaza in Raid Battles to earn enough Mega Rayquaza Energy to Mega-Evolve your own Rayquaza. Additionally, your Rayquaza must know the attack Dragon Ascent, which can be taught with the help of a Meteorite earned through Go Fest 2023 Research tasks.

Once you have met these requirements, you will be able to temporarily Mega-Evolve your Rayquaza to use in Raid Battles.

Prepare yourself for the battle against Mega Rayquaza by taking note of its weaknesses and assembling a team of strong counters. Good luck trainers!
