Pokémon GO Mega Ampharos Raid Guide – Mega Ampharos Counters and Weaknesses

How can you counter this Mega Pokémon?

The Mega evolution of Ampharos is currently available in Raids in Pokémon GO. Since Mega Ampharos can be a tough opponent to face off against in Pokémon GO, it is always nice to run through a Raid Guide to prepare for the battle. Raid Guides let players know which Pokémon and typings are best to take into the fight and increase the chance of success.

Ampharos is usually a sole Electric-type Pokémon, but its Mega evolution in Pokémon GO gains an interesting Dragon-typing. This gives it a decent list of resistances but also some new and exploitable vulnerabilities. Because of these typings, players will perform best in a raid battle using IceFairyDragon, or Ground-type attacks. The types to avoid using when battling Mega Ampharos are FireGrassWaterSteelElectric, and Flying-type moves.
