Pokemon Go : Gyarados Is Your Secret Weapon

Niantic introduce Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon GO fest. Pokemon Chicago Fest didn’t turn out to be as expected. Now Pokémon Go has legendaries in the game now Lugia and Articuno. To pin these beast down you need a powerful weapon if you dont have a Tyranitar.

Gyarados Is Your Secret Weapon

On Pokemon Go player community the Silph Road, poster RyanoftheDay — who previously mocked up some of the best Legendary counters prior to their release — argued that Gyarados is a powerful counter against Lugia.

Against a Lugia with Hydro Pump, RyanoftheDay stated that Gyarados actually performs better than a Tyranitar of a similar level — especially if it has Bite and Crunch as its moveset, since both are dark-type moves that take advantage of psychic-type Lugia’s weakness to dark.

Another user, did some number crunching and confirmed that in specific circumstances, Gyarados can be a good counter to Lugia:

Against a Hydro Pump Lugia, Gyarados takes about half as much damage from the charge move as a Tyranitar of similar level.

It should be noted, however, that these matchups can also turn against Gyarados, especially when stacked against a Lugia with Future Sight as its charge move — which is one of the best movesets you can get for Lugia, by the way:

Gyarados does poorly against a Lugia with Future Sight, unfortunately.

However, Gyarados’ weakness to a psychic-type Lugia shouldn’t deter you from using it in raids. A Gyarados with dark-type attacks can function as a strong budget counter to all Lugia types, especially if you don’t have multiples of more solid counters, like Houndoom, Gengar and Tyranitar.
