Pokemon Go’s Articuno is weak to Fire, Steel, and Electric-type moves. Moreover, Articuno is twice as weak against Rock-type. It is, however, resistant to Ground, Grass, and Bug-type moves. Articuno’s moveset is almost entirely comprised of ice-type moves. Here are Articunos’s weaknesses, counters, and how you can beat it.


  • Type– Ice / Flying
  • Weakness – Fire, Steel, Electric, Rock (2x)

Persian Counters

  • Rampardos
  • Rhyperior
  • Terrakion
  • Tyranitar
  • Gigalith
  • Omastar
  • Alolan Golem
  • Aggron
  • Heatran
  • Aerodactyl

How To Beat

Flying, Ground, Grass, and Dragon-type Pokemon should be avoided at all costs, as they will be completely mutilated. Avoid using Poison, Steel, Fire, and Electric-types if you know you’re going up against an Articuno with Ancient Power. Not to mention that this is the only Ground-type move it has. Ground-type moves are also weak to Rock-types. However, Articuno’s dual Rock weakness outweighs this.
