Overview

Believe it or not, Tyranitar is a relatively easy duo if you have a proper lineup of Machamp with a sprinkle of Hariyama. It’s even easier after the type effectiveness multiplier was upped to 1.6x. Most fully evolved Fighting-type Pokemon are capable of duoing Tyranitar now, though they must be good at dodging tough sets like Iron Tail + Fire Blast.

Approach

Team Composition

  • Many Fighting-types will do, but Machamp and Hariyama are best at the lowest levels

  • Blaziken and Poliwrath are good additions to the team vs. Fire Blast

Dodging Strategy

  • Consider dodging Fire Blast for survivability, as this increases win % of most counters

  • If using counters at their minimum viable levels, avoiding a relobby is near mandatory

Counters

Note: "Good" movesets are not necessarily viable at the level indicated.
