Pokemon GO Mega Banette Weakness & Counters

Before we jump into the moveset, our first order of business is the weakness and best counters for Mega Banette in Pokemon GO. This Pokemon actually has two weaknesses, Dark and Ghost. Both of these do 160% damage. On the other hand, Poison and Bug do just 63%, and Normal and Fighting just a paltry 39%.

Pokemon GO Mega Banette Best Moveset

We’ve mastered the best counters for Mega Banette in Pokemon GO and its weakness, now it’s time to dive into the best moveset. Now, this particular Pokemon is a Ghost-type, and in this case, it’s probably best to stick to what it does best. I’d recommend going for either Hex (Ghost) or Shadow Claw (Ghost) as your Quick Attack and Shadow Ball (Ghost) as the Charged Attack. That’s your best bet. Mega Banette has no other Quick Attacks. As for Charged Attacks, it can also have Dazzling Gleam (Fairy) and Thunder (Electric). Oh, and Frustration (Normal, Shadow) and Return (Normal, Purified). I wouldn’t suggest any of those, though.
