Adding a Mega Slowbro to a Pokémon Go gives players another mega Pokémon to consider for their roster. You can only use these Pokémon in raids, but they are extremely effective at increasing your teammate’s stats during combat, especially when fighting a legendary Pokémon. Mega Slowbro debuts during the Very Slow Discovery event and joins the rotation of mega Pokémon that may appear in mega forays forward. If you want to turn your Slowbro into a Mega Slowbro, you have to earn enough Segabro mega candies, which you can do by fighting it.
All the weaknesses of Mega Slowbro
Mega Slowbro is a water and mental type. It will be weak against Bug, Dark, Electric, Ghost and Grass moves, but is resistant to Fighting, Fire, Ice, Psychic, Steel and Water attacks. You primarily want to focus on using Dark, Electric, Ghost, and Grass Pokémon. If you plan to use Mega Beedrill or Genesect against Mega Slowbro, these would be good ways to survive a raid battle long enough to cause great damage.
The best Pokémon facing Mega Slowbro
The best Pokémon you can use against Mega Slowbro include Zekrom, Mega Venusaur and Magnezone.
Zekrom is a legendary dragon and electric pokemon. It is one of the more powerful Dragon-type Pokémon that you regularly see in players who have reached the top of Master League competitions. Its damage is difficult to defeat, and because it is an electric type, most of its attacks are extremely effective against the Mega Slowbro. The best set of moves you can use on Zekrom includes a fast dragon’s breath attack and charged movement, a wild charge and distress. Both of his charged moves are super effective against Mega Slowbro.
Another Pokémon you should consider using is Mega Venusaur, a Grass and Poison Pokémon. If you’ve beaten Mega Venusuros before and have enough mega candies to develop yours before entering the raid, now is the time to use it. Mega Venusaur will be able to withstand most Mega Slowbro attacks. The best set of moves you can teach Mega Venusaur is a whip on the vine with fast movement and a charged move crazy race and sludge bomb.
The last Pokémon we recommend you use against Mega Slowbro is Magnezone, an Electric and Steel Pokémon. Magnezone has a robust amount of defense and even more reliable damage. Because it is a steel type, it has very few weaknesses that you have to worry about, and most of the best attacks it can make are of the electric type, making it ideal for fighting the Mega Slowbro. The best set of moves you can learn Magnezone is the spark of fast movement and charged with wild charge moves and zap cannon.
You will need a full six-member team to fight Mega Slowbro. You can also use these Pokémon to fill your team. You can only use one mega Pokémon in a raid, so if you plan to use another Mega Pokémon, you will need to use five more regular Pokémon.
- Mega Ampharos
- Mega Gengar
- Mega Gyarados
- Mega Manectric
After defeating Mega Slowbro, you will receive some mega candies for your Slowbro that you can use to develop it. At the end of the meeting, you also have a chance to capture Slowbro and it can be a shiny version.
