Taking down Ultra Beasts in Pokemon GO is no easy feat, but the encounter rewards are well worth the effort. Even if players have already locked in all of the Ultra Beast Pokedex entries, these powerful Pokemon are still worth collecting for fans of PvP or PvE battles. A handful of them have some strong move sets and are poised to become popular choices in the PoGO meta game going forward.


To successfully defeat an Ultra Beast in Pokemon GO, trainers first need to understand each Raid Boss’ weaknesses and come up with a strategic counter roster to defeat the boss. For Pheromosa, that is going to mean studying up on Bug- and Fighting-type dual pairing weaknesses and assembling a roster of powerful Flying-types to take down the Ultra Beast.

Ultra Beast battles can be pretty tough and the average player using the right counters will still want to enter this battle with about four other friends. Parties of that size who stick to Pheromosa’s weaknesses should be able to beat the clock and earn their encounter rewards.

Pheromosa Weaknesses

This Ultra Beast is a Bug- and Fighting-type, which means that Pheromosa is 2x weak against Flying-type moves and weak to Fairy, Fire, and Psychic type moves.

Best Pheromosa Counters

Moltres – Wing Attack/Sky Attack

Rayquaza – Air Slash/Hurricane

Braviary – Air Slash/Brave Bird

Yveltal – Gust/Hurricane

Tornadus – Air Slash/Hurricane

Staraptor – Wing Attack/Brave Bird

Tornadus (Incarnate) – Air Slash/Hurricane

Honchkrow – Peck/Sky Attack

Tornadus (Therian) – Gust/Hurricane

Unfezant – Air Slash/Sky Attack

Zapdos – Charge Beam/Drill Peck

Ho-Oh – Extrasensory/Brave Bird

Mewtwo – Confusion/Psystrike

Toucannon – Peck/Drill Peck

Lugia – Extrasensory/Aeroblast

The 2x Flying-type weakness is a great strategy to focus on and players who have been raiding for a while are likely to have some of the top tier Flying-types already powered up and ready for the fight. That should be everything trainers need to know to pull together a respectable counter roster for Pheromosa Ultra Beast Battle Raids in the mobile AR game. Remember that it may be worth burning through some Elite TMs to equip the counter roster with optimal move sets for this battle. Most of these counter options are pretty evergreen and the investment would likely pay off in future counter rosters, as well.
