Pokémon Go Galarian Weezing counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

Galarian Weezing is the first Galar form to appear in Pokémon Go!

The top hatted Galarian Weezing is the first Galar regional form to appear in Pokémon Go.

Like the Alolan Pokémon, Galarian Pokémon are new versions of old favourites, which hail from the Galar region in Pokémon Sword and Shield. Each one has a new appearance and, more importantly, a new type.

Galarian Weezing is a four-star raid boss and, thanks to its dual fairy and poison-type, you may need a couple of fellow trainers to help you defeat it.

Everything you need to know about Galarian Weezing

Good, old, traditional, Weezing.

Galarian Weezing is a regional variant of Weezing that can only be found in the Galar region, which is the setting for Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Since Galar is inspired by Britain, each Galarian Pokémon relates somewhat to the country. Be it the new form for Zigzagoon, which resembles a badger, or Galarian Ponyta, which looks like unicorn - the national animal of Scotland.

Galarian Weezing takes its inspiration from the British Industrial Revolution. It's top hats not just a symbol of the industrial elite, but resembling the chimneys that came to cover much of the British countryside.
