Pokémon Go Mega Glalie counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

Mega Glalie is the Mega Evolved form of Glalie, which makes its debut in Pokémon Go as part of the Mythical Wishes Winter Holiday 2022 event in Pokémon Go.

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

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

  • Mega Glalie Mega counters: Mega Charizard (And ideally, X is still cool) or Mega Houndoom with double Fire attacks are your best options. Mega Blaziken is a good option if you want to buff everyone you attack with.
  • Non-Mega Mega Glalie Counters: Fight ice with fire or fight if you have Terrakion with double kick and holy sword. Keldeo (if you bought one) is great with Low Kick and Sacred Sword, while Lucario with Counter and Aura Sphere is also great. Reshiram with Fire Fang and Overheat is great, while Metagross with Bullet Punch and Meteor Mash continues to outperform. Beyond that, you’re looking at your standard attack team: Darmanitan and Chandelure for Fire attacks, or Rampardos with Smack Down and Rock Slide if you have one. A maxed out Master League Dialge even works well here if you don’t have the above.
  • Number of Players to Beat Mega Glalie: Mega Glalie can be defeated by just two players if you have good enough counters, and can be defeated solo by a level 50 player with maxed counters. Three players at level 40 is totally reasonable, and five players at level 30 should be fine, as long as you bring the right Pokémon into battle!
  • Tactics: As a pure Ice-type, Mega Glalie has many weaknesses that you can exploit; If you’re fighting in a group, keep in mind that most players will be bringing Fire-type Pokémon, so run with a Fire-type. Mega will boost your friends’ Pokémon abilities. Mega Blaziken is not the strongest option here, but it is an interesting option as it will also boost the Terrakions and Lucarios that will fight alongside you.

Everything we know about Glalie


Glalie, the Face Pokémon, is an Ice-type Pokémon from Generation 3 and is the evolved form of Snorunt.

According to the official Pokédex entry, ‘It has a mass of ice that does not melt, even with fire. It can instantly freeze moisture in the atmosphere.

Her official entry in the Pokédex, however, simply states: ‘When he blows tremendously cold air out of his broken mouth, the entire area around him turns white.
