Pokémon Go Mega Latias weakness, counters and best Latias moveset

How to defeat the Mega version of Latias.

Mega Latias is making its Pokémon Go debut during the new Air Adventures event in the Season of Alola.

To get Latias Mega Energy and get a Mega Latias, you must take part in Mega Raids to defeat the Gen 3 variant to add it to your Pokédex.

This is a tough Pokémon to take on solo, so we recommend teaming up with other trainers and knowing the best Mega Latias counters, and the Mega Latias weakness to catch the Pokémon, and maybe even get a Shiny Latias if you're lucky.

Make sure to check out our Mega Latios weakness and counters page to help defeat it.

Mega Latias counters and weaknesses in Pokémon Go

Below you can find the Mega Latias weaknesses, with some counter suggestions, to help you defeat it in Pokémon Go:

  • Latias type - Dragon and Psychic
  • Latias weakness - Bug, dark, dragon, fairy, ghost and ice-type
  • Latias counters - Mega Houndoor, Zekrom, Dialga, Reshiram, Garchomp, Darkrai
  • Other Latias notes - If you're lucky enough to have them, a Mega Latios or Mega Gengar will boost party and same type damage while they last. If not, using your strongest Dragon, Dark, or Ice-type Pokémon is recommended, especially if they are Shadow Pokémon. It's best to team up with at least three other trainers using good counters to raise your chances of defeating a Mega Latias.
