Mega Manectric Raid Guide (Best Counters & Weaknesses)

To defeat Mega Manectric in a Pokémon GO Raid, Trainers must use pocket monsters with movesets that include the Ground-type element.


One of the best Electro-type counters for high-tier raids is Mega Manectric, the mega evolution of the Electrike family Pokemon GO. However, Wild Manectric, including the rest of its predecessor forms, are not very common spawns in the AR world in most regions. Luckily, between October 8th and October 20th, 2022, Trainers can try to acquire this electrifying beast in Mega Raids. In preparation for battle, players should consider Mega Manectric’s stats, elemental resistances, and best counters Pokemon GO.

Mega Manectric’s only element is Electric, making it resistant to Flying, Steel, and other Electric-type Pokémon movesets. On the other hand, Gound attacks are effective against this pocket monster. Elemental counters aren’t the only factor players should consider, however. As a 39,773 raid boss, Mega Manectric needs at least 2-3 high rank trainers to take down.

When facing Mega Manectric, poke battler suggests Garchomp, Landorus Therian, Groudon, Shadow Golem, and Rhyperior as the top five candidates for the Pokemon GO mugged. Garchomp and Rhyperior are rare but pretty easy to get. Conversely, Landorus Therian, Groudon, and Shadow Golem are significantly harder to acquire. Trainers lacking these creatures can refer to the index of optimal counters below, with standard Rhyperior and Pokemon GOGarchomp at the top of the list.
