Rhyperior weakness pokemon go. Defeat Rhyperior!!!

let’s discuss about the weakness of our migthy Rhyperior.

While Rhyperior has great stats, its Rock and Ground typing leaves it open to a variety of different types to be hit super effectively by. To view the detailed stats of rhyperior, please follow the link in the description.

Rhyperior’s most exploitable weakness is its multitude of weaknesses to common attacking types in Pokemon GO like Water and Fighting.

This leaves Rhyperior unviable in Great League due to the metagame tyrant Azumarill taking over the tier with its devastating Water-type attacks.

Great and Ultra League also do not see Rhyperior very often due to the amount of Steel-type Pokemon dominating both leagues.

Rhyperior in Master League sounds like it would finally dominate due to the amount of Pokemon able to hit it heavily being so low.

However, quality overtakes quantity in this case as legendaries like Kyogre and Zarude destroy Rhypherior thanks to their low energy costing charged attacks, quickly burning Rhyperior’s shields before blasting right through it.

To defeat Rhyperior Would a Lightning Rod and Storm Drain combo work?

Theoretically yes, as the general idea is clever, but not with these Pokemon as:

  • Lumineon would have to compete in a tier that it could not hold its own.
  • Attacks that hit numerous opponents are popular, such as Surf and Discharge, these attacks would destroy Rhyperior and Lumineon.
  • Strategies like this can only excel by using these abilities to their full potential and here is a reason why this team cannot do this.
  • Strom Drain can increase a Pokemon’s SP.ATK if hit by a WAT attack but Surf would be a waste on Rhyperior due to a SP.ATK stat of 55 and the move not even having STAB.
  • If Lumineon was a ground type Pokemon then Lighting Rod would not be needed on Rhyperior for Lumineon’s protection and then Lighting Rod would be a waste on Rhyperior as, being a ground type Pokemon, neither Pokemon would be damaged by an electric attack.
  • [REPEAT] If Lumineon was a ground type Pokemon then Lighting Rod would not be needed on Rhyperior for Lumineon’s protection and then Lighting Rod would be a waste on Rhyperior as, being a ground type Pokemon, neither Pokemon would be damaged by an electric attack.
  • Lumineon can’t take hits or dish them out so can easily be replaced by another Storm Drainer.

Rhyperior is a Ground & Rock Pokémon which evolves from Rhydon. It is vulnerable to Water, Grass, Fighting, Ground, Steel and Ice moves. Rhyperior’s strongest moveset is Mud-Slap & Rock Wrecker and it has a Max CP of 3,733.
