Suicune is a pure WATER Pokemon, however, his moves are quite varied. So countering him is difficult due to his different type moves. Our favorite Golems, we used for Legendary Birds will not be of much use.

We recommend using a small Zapdos battalion, bolstered with Exeggutor and Venusaur Solar Beam calvary. Dragonite is an option also, but keep in mind the following: if it’s Electric type or it has Solar Beam it’s good. Every other choice is more or less the same thing.

Suicune moves

  • Extrasensory PSYCHIC
  • Hydro Pump WATER
  • Hidden Power
  • Buble Beam WATER
  • Water Pulse WATER

Other Counters that can be used:

Suicune can only be effectively countered with Electric and Grass types. Bring your Tangela, your Ampharos, Victreebel and Lanturn to this fight if you need a solid Team Two.



Lanturn can also be used as a Team Two member, especially as he has solid stamina and access to Electric type moves, so don’t forget that. Tyranitars and Golems are better left benched.
