What Pokemon Can Beat Ghost Types in Pokemon Go?
The best type to use to take on Ghost-types are Dark-type Pokemon. Dark-type moves hit Ghost-types for super effective damage, while Ghost-type moves hit Dark-type Pokemon for half the normal damage, as Ghost moves are resisted by Dark types. Strong Dark-type Pokemon you can use again Ghost-types are Mega Houndoom, Mega Gyarados, Tyranitar, Darkrai, Weavile, and so on.
The runner-ups for the best type to use to fight against Ghost-type Pokemon are Normal-types and Ghost-types themselves. Normal-type Pokemon are immune to all Ghost moves, and can hit Ghost-types with the large coverage that Normal-types generally have. Some great Normal-types you can use are Mega Lopunny, Regigigas, Porygon Z, Meloetta (both forms), and so on.
Ghost-type moves are super effective against their own type—Ghost, which is why Ghost-types are a counter to themselves. But what this means is that you will have to be quicker and stronger than the opposing Ghost type so that you can take it out before it takes you out. The best Ghost-types you can use are Mega Gengar, Giratina, Hoopa (Confined), Chandelure, Banette, and so on.
