Quagsire weaknesses in Pokemon

Quagsire is a Water/Ground-type Pokemon, which means it’s weak against the following attack types:

  • Grass

Figuring out how to defeat Quagsire can be quite difficult, especially as it only has one weakness, but if you have a strong team of Grass-type Pokemon with Grass-type moves, it will be much easier to win.

In fact, Quagsire actually has a double weakness (4x damage) to Grass-type attacks, which makes it incredibly vulnerable towards them.

  • Electric
  • Fire
  • Poison
  • Rock
  • Steel

In mainline Pokemon games like Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, Quagsire is actually immune to Electric-type attacks, but in Pokemon Go, it’s only resistant to them.

You should avoid using Pokemon or attacks that have these typings, as they won’t do much damage to Quagsire at all – especially Electric-type attacks.
