Absol weakness in Pokemon GO is rather easy to figure out.

Absol has become something of a fan favorite. Its misunderstood nature created an aura of mystery that drew many players in. Additionally, with the release of mega-evolutions into Pokemon GO, trainers who've enthusiastically added Absol to their collection have been wondering when we'll see Absol's mega-evolution in-game.

Unfortunately for some, to get mega Absol, they'll need to take it down in a raid.

Absol is a pure dark-type. It has a CP ceiling of 2526, an attack stat of 246, defense of 120, and stamina of 163. Its maximum hit point total is 140. Fortunately, this means that it's pretty easy to counter.

Pokemon such as Absol are most vulnerable to bug, fairy, and fighting-types. Primary counters include Lucario, Machamp, Conkeldurr, and Breloom. Lucario is most effective with a moveset of "Counter" and "Aura Sphere" while the rest do best with "Counter" and "Dynamic Punch."

Additionally, trainers could use more contemporary Pokemon like Sirfetch'd with "Counter" and "Close Combat" or Volcarona with "Bug Bite" and "Bug Buzz."

Absol was first introduced with the other Hoenn Pokemon on Dec. 8, 2017. Also known as the "Disaster Pokemon," Absol was known to herald catastrophes. The sighting of an Absol usually meant that something bad was going to happen. However, it's often debated whether Absol is the cause of these disasters or if it is meant as a warning. Its PokeDex number is 359.
