How to counter Corviknight in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Choosing the right Pokémon to fight Corviknight can be tricky, thanks to its stats and type combination. Ideally, you want a Pokémon that focuses on Special Attack and has powerful Fire or Electric-type moves. Corviknight doesn't have the coverage moves to stop these Pokémon, but it can use Roost to remove its Flying type, making Fire the best option.
We recommend using Houndoom, Armarouge, Pyroar, or Volcarona against Corviknight. These are all faster than it and have enough Special Attack to take it out quickly. Other good choices are Skeledirge, Torkoal, and Camerupt, but these are not faster than Corviknight, so you will need to be careful when using these.
