Dialga Weakness & Best Moveset in Pokemon GO

Now that we know what the best counters for Dialga in Pokemon GO, let’s dive into the specifics of its weakness and best moveset. This legendary Pokemon has only two weaknesses: Fighting attacks and Ground attacks. Both of these deal 160% damage. One the flip side, Dialga is immune to almost everything else. It takes 63% damage from Bug, Normal, Flying, Rock, Water, Electric and Steel attacks, and a measly 39% from Grass and Poison. So, really, Fighting and Ground are your only options.

As for Dialga’s best moveset, it’s definitely Metal Claw (Steel) as the Fast Attack and Draco Meteor (Dragon) as the Charged Attack. This is true regardless of whether you’re on the offense or on the defense. In fact, Dialga actually doesn’t have that long of a list of available moves. The only other Fast Attack is Dragon Breath (Dragon), and the other two Charged Attacks are Thunder (Electric) and Iron Head (Steel, and great Rob Zombie song).
