Who is Mega Blaziken in Pokémon Go?

The Mega Evolution of Gen III’s Fire starter, Mega Blaziken is a highly anticipated Mega Pokémon. Blaziken is already a valuable Pokémon that has been featured in many events, including Community Day. As a Fire type, it is capable of dealing even more damage per second than Mega Charizard Y, and as a Fighting type, it comes close to Mega Lucario.

In Pokémon Go, Mega Blaziken also represents the first useful Fight type Mega. Mega Lopunny is cute, for sure, but doesn’t last as long nor can it hit as hard. This is a raid you will want to prioritize, so be sure to check out our best Pokémon Go accessories, so you’re fully equipped.

There are a handful of options for Mega Evolution when countering Mega Blaziken, focusing on some of its weaknesses: Flying, Ground, Water, and Psychic type.

Mega Latios

Mega Latios is the best performing Mega Pokemon in this raid. As a Dragon and Psychic type, he resists Fire and Fighting type damage and has no weaknesses Mega Blaziken can exploit. If you’re adding Mega Latios to your team, he should know Zen Headbutt and psychic.

Mega Alakazam

If you cannot afford the expensive Mega Legendary, Mega Alakazam is the next best option. It’s a pure Psychic type, so Mega Latios cannot take advantage of its weaknesses, and it resists Fighting type damage. Confusion and psychic are the ideal moveset for Alakazam in this fight.

Mega Blastoise

For a Water based offense, Mega Blastoise is a great choice. It’s a pure Water type, so it resists Fire type damage and has no relevant weaknesses. If you’re adding Mega Blastoise to your team, you want it to know Water Gun and Hydro Cannon.
