Guzzlord Comes to Pokémon GO: How to Defeat the Ultra Beast

Guzzlord begins making its appearance in 5-Star Raids Nov. 8 through Nov. 23, both at 10 a.m. local time. According to LeekDuck, Guzzlord can be defeated by one to three trainers, though Level and proper Counters will be an obvious factor in determining this. For players below Level 40, bringing a couple of friends is likely the smart decision.

According to an infographic circulating thanks to LeekDuck, Guzzlord is a Dark/Dragon type with a typical Catch CP of 1565-1650 and Boosted CP of 1956-2062. Foggy and windy weather conditions will cause Guzzlord to see the Weather Boost. Typical Raid Boss CP for Guzzlord is around 26,545.

Additionally, Guzzlord can know the following moves:

  • Fast Moves: Snarl (Dark), Dragon Tail (Dragon)
  • Charged Moves: Brutal Swing (Dark), Crunch (Dark), Dragon Claw (Dragon), Sludge Bomb (Poison)

Guzzlord also has the following weaknesses: Fairy (2x), Bug, Dragon, Fighting and Ice.

Obviously the way to go for Guzzlord is to hit with Fairy attacks, and lots of them. According to LeekDuck, the best  Counters and their movesets for Guzzlord are:

  • Mega Alakazam: Counter / Dazzling Gleam
  • Gardevoir: Charm / Dazzling Gleam
  • Togekiss: Charm / Dazzling Gleam
  • Xurkitree: Thunder Shock / Dazzling Gleam
  • Primarina; Charm / Moonblast
  • Zacian: Quick Attack / Play Rough

While none of the Ultra Beasts are currently able to be Shiny, this is the debut of Guzzlord in Pokémon GO. While there are likely better Dark and Dragon Types, who knows how often Guzzlord will come around once it leaves this current Raid cycle.
