Pokemon GO Stantler Weakness, Moveset and Counters

Stantler counters and its moveset and weakness in Pokemon GO are all tied up with its type, of course. Since Stantler is a Normal-type Pokemon, that means it’s only weak to Fighting-type attacks, taking up to 160% damage from them. On the other hand, it is very resistant against Ghost attacks, so that’s definitely not the way to go. Every other type does a normal amount of damage to the reindeer-like Pokemon. As for its moveset, it has a number of Normal moves and a handful of other types. Its Normal moves include Tackle, Stomp, Frustration and Return. When it comes to non-normal moves, Stantler can have Zen Headbutt (Psychic), Wild Charge (Electric), and Megahorn (Bug).

So, that’s the Stantler moveset and weakness in Pokemon GO, but what about counters? Well, there are a number of really good combinations that can bring the reindeer creature down fairly efficiently. We’ll give you some suggestions in the list below. Keep in mind that these are just options; feel free to use whatever build suits you best (and share it with us in the comments). We’ll focus mostly on Pokemon with Fighting move combos; there will be a lot of overlap with the movesets. With all that said, let’s dive in.
