Vespiquen, also known as the “Beehive Pokemon”, is a powerful Generation IV Pokemon that evolves from Combee. Like many other Pokemon it, too, is featured in Pokemon Go. Since it is a Bug / Flying-type, it has many resistances, but also several weaknesses, that make battling it that much harder, or easier, depending on the attack type used against it. You will, of course, want to exploit its vulnerabilities and use attacks that will do the most damage against it. But what are these? Well, in this Pokemon Go Vespiquen Weakness guide, we will go over the moves that it is most susceptible to.
