Pokémon GO Groudon Raid Guide – Groudon Counters & Weaknesses

Want some help countering the Continent Pokémon?

The powerful legendary Pokémon Groudon is returning to Raid battles in Pokémon GO. This is exciting news for players who missed out on its Raid rotation last time around. Groudon's iconic shiny form will be available in Raids as well. Raid Guides are helpful for players heading into Raid battles, especially against Pokémon as powerful as Groudon, because they let players know which Pokémon and typings are most effective in the battle.

Groudon is a Ground-type Pokémon, which means it is highly vulnerable to damage from Water, Grass, and Ice-type moves. This also means, however, that is is resistant to Poison, Rock, and Electric-type attacks.
