Mega Gardevoir weaknesses in Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go’s Mega Gardevoir is a Fairy and Psychic-type Pokemon, which means that it’s weak against Ghost, Poison, and Steel-type attacks. Make sure to focus your team on these specific types.

It’s also worth noting that Fighting and Psychic-type attacks won’t hit Mega Gardevoir with much damage, so you should avoid that approach. Dragon-type attacks will have no effect so those are also out of the question.

How to get Mega Gardevoir in Pokemon Go

It’s important to know that you can’t catch Mega Gardevoir after defeating it in a Raid Battle. Instead, you can catch a regular Gardevoir and Mega-Evolve it. For that, you’ll need to defeat many more Mega Gardevoir in Raid Battles and collect Gardevoir Mega Energy. When you have enough, you can Mega-Evolve it for a limited time.

Once you Mega-Evolve Gardevoir once, you won’t need more Mega Energy to do it again. Instead, you’ll only have to wait for the cooldown to end.

Mega Gardevoir will appear in Raid Battles during the Valentine’s Day event from February 8 to February 15, 2023.
