Beating any Pokemon is all about type matchups. Zekrom is a dragon and electric type so it is weak against dragon, fairy, ground, and ice type Pokemon. Since many dragon type Pokemon are also flying type, there are few that have good matchups against Zekrom because of its electric type. The best Pokemon to use against it in raids are Gardevoir, Groudon, Rayquaza, Palkia, Weavile, Rhyperior, Mamoswine, Togekiss, and Garchomp.
