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.

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.
