So if you’re sad thinking all your Pokemon GO playing friends got a legendary, then cheer up and go out for raid.

How to beat them

If you have read my previous posts, then you already know the weaknesses of Moltres, and Zapdos already. If you haven’t, then you can read it below;
Okay so let’s move on to the other two. Lugia and Articuno. These two legendaries are extremely strong, but with correct Pokemon, you can easily defeat them.

  • Lugia

Lugia has two types, Psychic and Flying, and it has a lot of weaknesses. It is weak to Rock, Ice, Electric, Ghost, and Dark types. But it immune to ground types. So if you are planning to take rock type Pokemon, I’d recommend you not to take any Rock type Pokemon with you. You might be thinking it is a Flying type too, and Rock types are more effective on Flying type. But Lugia is a Pokemon with whom you shouldn’t go with Rock type. It has a move which can wipe out any Rock type Pokemon in one hit. You are right it’s hydro pump. One hit and your strongest Rock type Pokemon is dead. 

So in order to beat Lugia, it’d be a good idea to take strong Electric and Dark type Pokemon. They won’t have much defense like Rock types, but can surely stay longer in the battle than Rock types.
Also, do take a lot of your friends with you to get an advantage, else winning chances would be less.

  • Articuno

Articuno is kinda weaker compared to other legendary Pokemon, but it doesn’t mean you can put it down with any Pokemon. As it has dual types, Ice, and Flying, taking Rock type Pokemon would be a good idea. But Rock with Ground type too is a BIG NO! Ground type Pokemon are weaker than Ice type. Like Golem. Articuno will knock it out in seconds with its Ice type moves. 

But taking Tyranitar would be a very good idea. It has no weakness against any moves of Articuno. Also, Tyranitar can use both Fire and Rock type moves which are super effective against Articuno.

Not only Rock and Fire type, Articuno is also weaker to Electric type because of it being a Flying-type, and also Steel type for being an Ice type. Taking Pokemon which can use Electric and Steel type moves would also be effective.

Always take your friends for legendary raids
The more, the merrier! 

And again the same tip, take your friends with you. You know the more the merrier. It’d be easier for you to beat Articuno if you take your friends with you.

Hope this helped you all. Hurry go and catch your legendary before this ends! All the best!!! See you next time!!!

Gotta Catch ’em All!
