Terrakion is one of the Pokémon Go 5-Star Raid Bosses as well as another iconic member of the Swords of Justice, a group of Legendary Pokémon. It can be a useful ace to have up your sleeve for duels in the Go Battle League as well as against many raid bosses, making it a useful pick-up when it’s available in 5-Star Raids. Its Shiny version can be obtained from these battles as well, at least with some luck on the user’s side.

Terrakion is a Rock- and Fighting-type Pokémon, which means that it has a ton of weaknesses you can exploit. Marvel at this list of effective types: Fighting, Ground, Steel, Water, Grass, Fairy, and Psychic. It’s safe to say that you’ll probably have enough Pokémon of these categories under your command to put together a strong team.

We’re going to make things even simpler for you by listing the best Pokémon Go Terrakion counters below.
