Lugia

Lugia can be tricky to counter well due to its variety of charge moves. Overall, Tyranitar and Zapdos are you best bets against all of Lugia’s movesets. For “Good” counters and “Tanks” (and to a slight extent “Glass”) their usefulness often alters with Lugia’s moveset. For example, against Hydro Pump Lugia, a level 35+ Gyarados moves from “Good” to “Supreme” but against all other iterations of Lugia it’s just “Good.”

You can “tell” what charge move Lugia might have through the game’s auto-select choices. If you have a powerful Tyranitar and it isn’t auto-selected, you’re likely up against a Hydro Pump Lugia. In this situation, Gyarados, Dragonite, and Lapras are more useful than usual and Golem becomes “Glass”. The below rankings are meant to reflect what’s good to use and how they rate against all Lugia sets, not just specific movesets. We would like to reiterate that even against Hydro Pump Lugia, Tyranitar and Zapdos are still “Supreme.”
