Cresselia Counters in the Great League

( Originally posted on pokemongohub )

Cresselia is a powerful contender in Great League PvP. Its high Defense and Stamina stats allow it to take significant damage. Although the minimum CP for Raid obtained Cresselia is 1555, trading can bring Cresselia‘s CP down to 1419, allowing it to just squeeze under the Great Leauge threshold.

Having only three weaknesses, there are a limited number of counters. Both Ghost and Bug deal increased damage, but take neutral damage; while Dark both deals increased damage and double resists Psychic moves. Cresselia, however, has a trick up its sleeve – Moonblast.

Moonblast is the strongest Fairy Charge Move in PvP, plus Fairy moves deal increased damage to Dark Pokémon. Therefore, the key is to use Steel or Fire Pokémon, as counters, especially if they have dark moves.
