[TIPS] How to counter [Pokemon]


#1

What Pokémon with what move sets would be a good counter to Blissey?


#2

In terms of survivability Golem with any moveset


#4

Dragonite with Outrage :ok_hand:t3:


#5

Interestingly enough, I have selected Pinsir as my main choice for fighting the mink monster. I’ll add screen shots to help you all understand why.


#6

Yeah I have a 100%iv dragonite with dragon tail and hurricane and it gets through blissey pretty well.


#7

Counter? What’s that! lol I only counter the power up moves and that’s only when I’m training up a gym or dodging hyper beam. Hydro pump, solar bean, and psychic oh and dazzling gleam


#8

Usual go to pokes for me include anything with solar beam or hydro pump… Dragonite / Gyarados are obvious choices due to high DPS output and high max CPs… I really would like a Machamp with Counter Close Combat but I just can’t get the moveset on when evolving :frowning:


#9

I live in Florida and have easy access to Heracross. If you get one with a good moveset, they melt some pretty strong blisseys. Machamp is also good, but I only have one because I don’t see many machops.


#10

I usually use my Ursaring and houndoom to get through blissy’s. one or the other if it’s 2700CP or below or both of its higher.


#11

I use Gyarados. It lands 5 bites for each Blissey move, I get a mileage of 3-4 Hydro Pump depending on the Blissey in Gym. Gyarados is quick in dodging unlike Rhydon/Golem/Exeggecutor. I even take out Dragonites with it(Dragon Breath).


#12

This one has a low HP and no STAB from fighting type.


#13

Flareon does the trick but it has to be very similar CP. - That’s worked for me, but I think it may depend on Blissey moveset.


#14

I regularly use Alakazam with Psyco Cut & Future Sight because of the high DPS or Exeggcutor with Zen headbutt & Solar Beam. Both need to be 2,500 CP or better.
Always looking for other moms to use than my regulars so thanks for the tips.


#15

My fav is machamp counter dynamic punch 2548 cp it is strong if I dodge charge moves I can take out a 2900 blissey if I miss a few dodges I put alakzam with conf and future sight behind it to clean up and of course dragonite DT/HB works to clean up its 3100 cp


#16

I’ve got crappy fighting pokemon, but just picked up a 93% Pinsir with Rock Smash/Close Combat. It’s 2118 right now. Debating if it’s worth powering up.


#17

They are Fighting moves but have no STAB for Pinsir
