Pokémon Go Mega Salamence counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

Mega Salamence is the Mega Evolved form of Salamence, the pseudo-legendary Dragon-type Pokémon, making its debut in Pokémon Go as part of the particularly exciting Twinkling Fantasy event in Pokémon Go.

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

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

Cons and weaknesses of Mega Salamence in Pokémon Go

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

  • Mega Salamence Types: Dragon and Flying
  • Mega Salamence is weak against: Fairy, Dragon, Ice (double weak) and Rock.
  • Mega Salamence is resistant to: grass, soil, insects, flight, fire and water.

  • Mega Salamence Mega Counters: Mega Abomasnow or Mega Glalie with double Ice moves will make a Flying/Dragon-type work quickly. If you don’t have them, your alternatives are Mega Latios/Latias (double Dragon), Mega Aerodactyl (double Rock) or Mega Charizard X (double Dragon).
  • Non-Mega Mega Salamence Counters: Ice is the most important thing here. Shadows aside, you’re looking at Mamoswine, Mewtwo (with Ice Beam), Glaceon, Kyurem, Aurorus, Avalugg (either form), or Walrein. Other than that, just bring your biggest dragons and hope for the best, but keep in mind that if you do that, you’re just as weak to Salamence as Salamence is to you!
  • Number of Players to Beat Mega Salamence: Mega Salamence 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 out 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: Ice, Ice, baby… (good luck getting that out of your head). Mega Salamence is a powerful enemy, but is completely destroyed by Ice-type attacks thanks to its double weakness to this type. If you’re fighting in a group, keep in mind that most players will be bringing Ice-type Pokémon, so having an Ice-type Mega in the lead will increase the abilities of your friends’ Pokémon, helping you defeat this boss faster and win more. Mega Energy as a result.

Everything we know about Salamence


The Dragon Pokémon Salamence is a Dragon and Flying-type Pokémon from Generation 3, and is the evolved form of Bagon and Shelgon.

Not only is Salamence an incredibly strong Pokémon, but it’s also a fan favorite and one of the few Pokémon to have a Paradox version added in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

On top of that, this family has perhaps one of our favorite Pokédex entries, and the official Mega Salamence entry blows you away. You can follow us (and feel sympathy for our friend Dragony) by reading his posts below.

  • Bagon: Bagon jumps off cliffs every day, trying to get stronger so he can fly one day.
  • Shelgon: ‘This Pokémon has covered its body with a hard shell that has the same composition as bone. Shelgon stores energy for evolution.’
  • Salamencia:’Salamence is an unusual Pokémon because it was able to develop a winged body simply by constantly wishing it could fly.
  • Mega Salamence:’The tension of his two proud wings deforming and sticking together due to the strong energy makes him go crazy.

It almost makes you feel bad for Mega Evolving Salamence, but the power increase here is real and worth it if you want one of the strongest Pokémon in the game.

Good luck defeating Mega Salamence in Pokémon Go!
