Pokémon GO Tyranitar Raid Guide – Tyranitar Counters and Weaknesses

How do you take down this dinosaur?

The beastly Rock and Dark-type attacker is currently available in Raids in Pokémon GO. While Tyranitar is not the most difficult Raid boss players can 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.

Tyranitar is a Dark and Rock-type Pokémon. This means it is vulnerable to many different attack types (FightingGroundSteelFairyGrassWater, and Bug-type moves). Players should bring along Pokémon of these typings to stand the best chance of defeating the Pokémon. Tyranitar is resistant to FlyingPsychicFireDarkGhostPoison, and Normal-type attacks. These are best avoided by trainers when entering a battle with Tyranitar.
