Mega Steelix Raid

  • Mega Steelix will be featured in the Mega Raid category in Pokemon GO this December. Alongside Zekrom and Reshiram’s present sightings in the Legendary Battle Raid, this adds another spicy boss for raiders to fight.
  • The Mega Boss will be accessible until December 23, so you still have time to assemble a formidable team and enter the fray.
  • Meta Steelix is a Pokemon that is both Steel and Ground in nature. This offers a vast array of interesting possibilities for a variety of powerful counters.
  • To exploit the large monster’s vulnerabilities, the best teams will focus on Fire, Fighting, Water, and Ground-type moves.
