Mega Gardevoir has finally made its debut in Pokemon Go, but you’ll need to know its weaknesses and the best counters to use if you want to defeat it.
The Hoenn region’s Fairy/Psychic-type Gardevoir is one of the most adored Pokemon of all time, so the long-awaited addition of its Mega Evolution in Pokemon Go has given fans plenty to get excited about.
Before you can try out Mega Gardevoir for yourself, though, you’ll need to defeat it in a Mega Raid Battle.
To help you do that, we’ve put together a simple Raid guide with details of Mega Gardevoir’s weaknesses and some of the top counters you should feature on your team.
Mega Gardevoir weaknesses in Pokemon Go
Mega Gardevoir is a Fairy/Psychic-type Pokemon, which means it’s weak against Ghost, Poison, and Steel-type attacks. Focus on these moves where possible.
On the other hand, you should avoid using Dragon, Fighting, and Psychic-type attacks, as Mega Gardevoir is resistant to them and they won’t do much damage.

How to get Mega Gardevoir in Pokemon Go
The most important thing to mention here is that you cannot catch Mega Gardevoir in Pokemon Go, but you will get the chance to catch a regular Gardevoir if you win a Mega Raid Battle against one.
You’ll then need to collect enough Gardevoir Mega Energy by defeating multiple Mega Gardevoir in Raid Battles. When you’ve earned enough, you’ll be able to temporarily Mega-Evolve your Gardevoir.
The good news is that once you’ve Mega-Evolved a Gardevoir, it won’t cost you any more Mega Energy to do it again – you’ll just need to wait for the cooldown period to end before starting the process again.
Mega Gardevoir will appear in Raid Battles during the Valentine’s Day event from February 8 to February 15, 2023.
