Blastoise Pokémon Go Best Counters

Blastoise is a Water type Pokémon with high defense. Being pure Water means it is weak to just Grass and Electric type moves. Blastoise doesn't get a lot of cover moves, but its Ice Beam limits your counter options slightly.

If you bring a Grass type Pokémon to deal with Blastoise, you have to watch out for its Ice Beam, which is super effective against Grass. To play it safe, it's best to go at Blastoise with a strong Electric type Pokémon that isn't weak to Ice, like Electivire or Raikou. Zekrom and Zapdos are also among the top Electric type attackers, but both are weak to Ice.

Blastoise isn't the tankiest of Water types, but it still ranks among the toughest. If you exploit its type you shouldn't have any problems dealing with it.
