Pokémon Go Raid Guide: Grotle’s Best Counters and Weaknesses

Need help fighting this Raid Pokémon?

In the latest Pokémon Go Event, Spring into Spring, there are several Pokémon that will appear in raids from April 12 through April 18. One of these Pokémon is Grotle, the second evolution of Turtwig. This Pokémon is available to battle in three-star Raids for the duration of the event.

Since Grotle is a solely grass-type Pokémon, players have quite a few options for countering it. Grass-type Pokémon take increased damage from Flying, Fire, Poison, Bug, and Ice-type moves.

Grotle's Moveset

Quick Attacks:

  • Bite (Dark-type)
  • Razor Leaf (Grass-type)

Charged Attacks:

  • Body Slam (Normal-type)
  • Energy Ball (Grass-type)
  • Solar Beam (Grass-type)
