The beloved Blastoise is one of the only Water-types that can Mega Evolve in Pokemon Go, and it’s also very bulky, making it a useful addition to your team for the long boost it will give to other Water-types.

Mega Blastoise is a pure Water-type Pokemon, which means it’s weak against Electric and Grass-type attacks. Use your best Pokemon of these types with matching attacks if you want to win.
