Mega Manectric’s Weaknesses

It is quite clear that Mega Manectric possesses only a single type: Electric. and if you didn’t know until now, Electric types possess only a single weakness: Ground. Hence, Mega Manectric’s biggest exploitable weaknesses are Ground type Pokemon and Ground type attacks.

Mega Manectric’s Counters

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Mega Manectric’s biggest counters are going to be Ground type Pokemon. And so, in the brief tier list below, you are going to see a large majority of its counters consisting of Ground type Pokemon.

The following tier list is separated into 2 tiers: A Tier and B Tier.

A Tier (Ideal Counters)

  • Garchomp
  • Groudon
  • Rhyperior
  • Landorus Incarnate

These Pokemon are the cream-of-the-crop when it comes to countering a Mega Raid Pokemon like Mega Manectric due to their insane stats coupled with their typing that gives them immunity to Electric attacks, as well as access to strong Ground type attacks like Earthquake and Earth Power.

B Tier (Decent Counters)

  • Excadrill
  • Krookodile
  • Golurk
  • Mamoswine
  • Golem
  • Flygon
  • Donphan
  • Haxorus

This tier consists of slightly weaker Pokemon that can counter Mega Manectric, but are going to have a harder time than the Pokemon in the A tier. These Pokemon either have an un-ideal typing like Haxorus, (only resists Electric, not immune), or possess lacking movepools and base stats.
