Here is the Tapu Koko guide that will help you beat Koko, suggest different types of counters, and much more in Pokemon Go.

Throughout your journey outdoors in Pokemon Go, you will run into difficult raid Pokemon. Having a strong team by your side is going to be crucial if Tapu Koko is one of them. The reason is that they can be hard to take down if you don’t have the correct setup.

This month, Niantic is about to introduce Gen 7 to the game as part of the next major expansion. But while there will be many new Pokemon Go events and challenges, catching Tapu Koko is guaranteed to be one of the big draws. The Legendary Electric Fairy type will be available in the first Legendary Alolan Raid, according to Niantic. The Tapu Koko guide will help you learn everything about it.

Tapu Koko guide: Weakness

As a Pokemon of the Fairy and Electric types, Tapu Koku possesses quite a unique combination. Therefore, it is weak against Ground-type and Poison-type moves. Both of these move types deal twice as much damage. If you want to take it down easily, you should use these types more often.

Pokemon Go is getting Tapu Koko this week, but the Legendary Alolan won’t be roaming the wilds. The game’s Raid system requires some preparation, so you’ll need to plan accordingly. The best time to try and catch Tapu Koko will be between March 2 and March 9 during two special Raid Hours.

These are taking place between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time, although Tapu Koko, an upcoming five-star Raid boss, will also be part of this event. The game will have Tapu Koko available from today until Tuesday, March 15, 2022. It is unlikely that Koko will be a shiny Pokemon, so you will have to wait for an announcement about this opportunity in the future.

Thus, Mega Gengar, Mega Beedrill, Shadow Mamoswine, Excadrill, Rhyperior, and Landorus Therian are the best Pokemon Go Tapu Koko counters.

You can use the following combos too:

  • Excadrill – Mud-Slap and Drill Run
  • Groudon – Mud Shot and Earthquake
  • Rhyperior – Mud Slap and Earthquake
  • Mega Beedrill – Poison Jab and Sludge Bomb
  • Mega Mamoswine – Mud-Slap and Bulldoze
  • Krookodile – Mud Slap and Earthquake
  • Mega Victreebel – Acid and Sludge Bomb
  • Mega Charizard Y – Ember and Blast Burn
  • Golem – Mud Slap and Earthquake
  • RoseRade – Poison Jab and Sludge Bomb
  • Mega Aerodactyl– Rock Throw and Earth Power

Tapu Koko is a Pokemon that is vulnerable to Ground and Poison-type attacks because it is an Electric and Fairy-type Pokemon. To take down Tapu Koko swiftly, you’ll need to bring a team of Pokemon that can use those move types.

If you’re running out of Pokemon to throw at Tapu Koko, simply make sure you don’t bring any Pokemon with Bug, Dark, Dragon, Electric, Fighting, or Flying-type attacks. Tapu Koko is impervious to all of them, especially Dragon. Due to their high resistance to Electric-type attacks, Ground Pokemon will be the best choice.
