Pokémon Go Guzzlord raid guide, counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

Guzzlord is the seventh Ultra Beast to be released in Pokémon Go, as hinted at at the beginning of the Season of Light.

Like all Ultra Beasts, Guzzlord cannot be caught directly in Pokémon Go. Instead, you must beat him in a raid to unlock an encounter, where you can throw a number of Premier Balls, depending on things like time to beat, whether you worked with a friend, etc.

Below you will find Guzzlord’s counterattacks and weaknesses that will help you succeed in Pokémon Go.

Cons and weaknesses of Guzzlord in Pokémon Go

Defeating a Guzzlord in a raid will give you a chance to catch the Junkivore Pokémon. Below you will find Guzzlord’s counterattacks and weaknesses that will help you achieve this:

  • Guzzlord Types: Dark Type and Dragon
  • Guzzlord is weak against Fairy (double weak), Fighting, Bug, Ice, and Dragon types.
  • Guzzlord Counters: Gardevoir, Togekiss, Primarina, Zacian, Granbull, or Sylveon are the types of fairies you want to bring. Xurkitree, while not a fairy type, runs Dazzling Gleam, which is awesome here. If you’re fighting for Mega Alakazam or Mega Altaria (with Dazzling Gleam) or Mega Latios/Latias (with Charm), a Mega Lopunny (Double Kick and Focus Blast) will work well.
  • Other Guzzlord Notes: As a Dark-type and Dragon-type, Guzzlord is doubly weak to Fairy-type attacks. If you don’t have the stronger counters we recommended above, anything with strong fairy-type attacks, like Charm and Dazzling Gleam, will help you a lot. Remember to Mega Evolve someone like Alakazam, Altaria, or Latios/Latias to also add a type-related damage boost to the party!

CP Guzzlord in Pokémon Go

Below you will find the CP levels to fight for Guzzlord and, if defeated, catch a Guzzlord after the fight in Pokémon Go:

Everything we know about Guzzlord

Guzzlord is a Dark and Dragon-type Pokémon from Generation 7, and is the seventh Ultra Beasts to join the world of Pokémon Go.

According to the official Pokédex entry, “Although alien to this world and a danger here, it is apparently a common organism in the world where it normally lives.” That’s pretty scary to say the least.

Guzzlord has incredibly high HP, but very low defense and speed and low attack. Overall, he’s not much use in raids in the future, but he might be fine in PvP, depending on what moves you give him. You can’t catch him in the Big League CPs, but you can probably trade him for one if you know what you’re doing, but it’s probably not worth it.

In the Ultra League, however, he could be an interesting choice. Think of it somewhere between Blissey and Wailord, with the writing (and brutality) of Hydreigon. Unfortunately, he won’t actually be of much use in Master League, so don’t worry too much if you don’t find a perfect Guzzlord!

Good luck defeating Guzzlord in Pokémon Go!
