Pokémon Go Mega Banette counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

Mega Banette is the Mega Evolved form of Banette, which makes its debut in Pokémon Go as part of the Halloween 2022 event in Pokémon Go.

This news, of course, shouldn’t come as a surprise to eagle-eyed Trainers, as its spot has been available in the Mega Pokédex for quite some time now!

Like all Mega Evolutions, Mega Banette cannot be caught directly in Pokémon Go. Instead, you must continue defeating it in Mega Raids until you have collected enough Mega Banette energy for its evolution. Thanks to the Summer 2022 Mega Raid rebalance, this can now be done in a Mega Raid if you defeat Banette enough.

Below you will find Mega Banette’s counterattacks and weaknesses that will help you succeed in Pokémon Go; just remember that you need to have a Banette in your Pokémon storage to perform its mega evolution.

Cons and weaknesses of Mega Banette in Pokémon Go

The quickest way to collect Mega Banette energy is to defeat one in a Mega Raid. Below you will find Mega Banette’s counterattacks and weaknesses that will help you achieve this:

  • Mega Banette Type – Phantom Type
  • Mega Banettea is weak against dark types and ghosts.
  • Mega Banette Mega counters: Gengar or Houndoom are the best options (depending on which charged move Mega Banette has, although this is chosen randomly). If you don’t have one of those, use Gyarados or Absol.
  • Non-Mega Mega Banette Counters: Hydreigon with Brutal Swing, Darkrai, Giratina Origin, Chandelure, and Yveltal are your best options. Otherwise, your stronger dark types or ghosts are the way to go.
  • Number of Players to Beat Mega Banette: Mega Banette can be defeated by just two players if you have good enough counters. Three players at level 40 is reasonable, and five players at level 30 should be fine, as long as you bring the right Pokémon into battle!
  • Other notes from Mega Banette: As a pure Ghost-type Pokémon, you have multiple opportunities to counterattack. Hydreigon with Brutal Swing is by far the best way to go, but make sure you have a Mega Evolved Pokémon to boost the attacks of Pokémon of the same type in your raid group and get extra candy for catching it.
  • Tactics: Mega Banette is a bit tricky because it has two attacks that will either tickle or ruin your team, depending on whether you bring ghost or dark-type Pokémon; Simply put, Dazzling Gleam destroys the dark types. There’s no way to know what attack he has, so if you’re worried about your ability to defeat him, make two teams: one that’s purely Ghost and one that’s purely Dark. It’s a coin toss you take on, so if you lose quickly by bringing in the wrong team, pick the other one when you’re returned to the lobby and you’ll have a much easier time!
