Pokémon Go Terrakion counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

The second member of the Swords of Justice has arrived.

Terrakion, known as the cavern Pokémon, has made its debut in Pokémon Go.

A member of the Swords of Justice quartet, alongside Cobalion, Terrakion is a rock and fighting-type Pokémon.

Like all legendary Pokémon in Pokémon Go, Terrakion is available in five-star raids, so, if you want to add this Gen 5 legendary Pokémon to your Pokédex, you'll want to gather a couple of other trainers.

Everything we know about Terrakion

Alongside Cobalion, Virizion and Keldeo, Terrakion is a member of the legendary Swords of Justice quartet who make their home in the Unova region.

The Swords of Justice work to protect Pokémon from the humans who threaten to destroy their natural habitat.

The other members of the Swords of Justice - Cobalion, Virizion and Keldeo.

When a war between humans and Pokémon caused the forest fire in the Moor of Icirrus, the Swords of Justice appeared to protect the wild Pokémon. Together they managed to help all the wild Pokémon escape, with Terrakion manipulating the earth to create safe pathways for them to use.

The Swords of Justice were inspired by the The Three Musketeers, written by Alexandre Dumas, pére. Each member of this legendary quartet represents a different musketeer, with Terrakion being inspired by Porthos. Terrakion resembles an oxen for this reason, as Porthos was the strongest, and largest, musketeer.
