Pokémon Go Mega Loppuny counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

How to defeat the mega evolved normal and fighting-type Pokémon.

Mega Lopunny is the mega evolution of the rabbit Pokémon, Lopunny, which was released as part of 2021's Spring into Spring event in Pokémon Go.

Like all Mega Evolutions, Mega Lopunny can’t be directly caught in Pokémon Go. Instead, you need to keep defeating it in Mega Raids until you’ve collected enough Mega Lopunny Energy for its evolution. While this used to take around three Mega Raids to get the requisite amount of Mega Energy, you can frequently just do it in one, thanks to the 2022 Mega Raid rebalancing.

Below you’ll find Mega Lopunny’s counters and weaknesses to help you defeat it in Pokémon Go. You'll need to have a Lopunny in your Pokémon storage to Mega Evolve, but don't worry because you get the chance to catch one if you can take it down.

Mega Lopunny counters and weaknesses in Pokémon Go

The fastest way to collect Mega Lopunny energy is to defeat one in Mega Raids. Below you’ll find the counters and weaknesses for Mega Lopunny to help you achieve this:

Mega Lopunny.
  • Mega Lopunny type - Fighting and normal-type
  • Mega Lopunny is weak against - Psychic, flying, fighting and fairy-types
  • Mega Aggron Mega counters - Mega Latios, Mega Latias, Mega Gengar, Mega Alakazam or Mega Slowbro. Remember, you can only bring one, and the one you bring will boost other Pokémon of the same type while it is out during the raid, so Mega Gengar is the worst option here.
  • Mega Aggron non-Mega counters - Mewtwo, Hoopa, Latios, Terrakion, Conkeldur, Moltres, Metagross and Gardevoir. Remember to make sure their attacks match the type you want to use, so a Metagross with Zen Headbutt and Psychic is actually better than Bullet Punch and Meteor Mash here. (Note: We categorically do not recommend TMing away Meteor Mash.)
  • Other Mega Aggron notes - As a normal and fighting-type, you have a lot of options for counters. If you have an army of Mewtwo, you will likely take this Mega Pokémon down very quickly!

Mega Lopunny CP in Pokémon Go

Everything we know about Lopunny

Lopunny.

Lopunny is a normal-type Pokémon from Gen 4, and is the evolved form of Buneary.

According to the official Pokédex entry, 'Lopunny is constantly monitoring its surroundings. If danger approaches, this Pokémon responds with superdestructive kicks.'

Mega Lopunny hakes this to the extreme, gaining a fighting type to add STAB damage to those kicks.

It also sounds a little more aggresive, according to its own unique Pokédex entry: 'It swings its ears like whips and strikes its enemies with them. It has an intensely combative disposition.'

Good luck defeating Mega Lopunny in Pokémon Go!
