Pokémon Go: Bombirdier Weaknesses and Counters Strategy Guide
Bombirdier is a dual-type Flying and Dark-type Pokémon. Naturally, it learns a majority of Flying and Dark moves, but it can also learn a Rock-type move as well. Here are its potential moves:
- Fast Attacks: Wing Attack, Rock Throw
- Charged Attacks: Aerial Ace, Payback, Fly
When battling against Bombirdier, you shouldn’t bring any Pokémon that are weak to Flying or Dark-type moves, which includes Fighting, Bug, Ghost, Grass, and Psychic-type Pokémon. It’s probably fine to use a Pokémon that’s weak to Rock, since Bombirdier can only learn Rock Throw, and it’s not a popular choice for a Fast Attack.
Now, since Bombirdier is a Flying and Dark dual-type Pokémon, which means that its weaknesses include Rock, Electric, Ice, and Fairy-type attacks. Make sure to bring Pokémon that know those kinds of attacks in order to deal super effective damage, and keep in mind that the Pokémon don’t necessarily need to match the attack’s type.
On the flip side, don’t try to use Ground, Psychic, Dark, Ghost, or Grass-type attacks on Bombirdier, as they won’t be very effective. Bombirdier is especially resistant towards Ground and Psychic attacks, so don’t even think about using those.
