How to counter Kingambit in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Kingambit's Dark/Steel-type combination gives it a lot of resistance, which, when combined with its coverage moves, can make it a real menace on the battlefield, especially with the right nature. Its high Attack lets it quickly take out Pokémon, and its physical bulk can make it hard to knock out. That being said, a strong Fighting-type with a high Special Attack is your best bet.
