Kirlia weakness in Pokemon GO will require trainers to use Poison, Ghost, and Steel Pokemon.

Pokemon GO's Fashion Week Event kicked off on Friday, featuring special Pokemon wearing costumes throughout the game — and they are showing up all over the place. Croagunk with a hat is appearing in GO Snapshot as a surprise encounter and may also appear in the wild. Players can also catch shiny versions of Gothita, Cottonee, Minccino, and more.

The Event also adds some new Pokemon to raids. Shinx and Kirlia, both wearing top hats, will be appearing. Kirlia will know the move Draining Kiss. If you want to catch this event-exclusive Pokemon, you're going to have to know its weaknesses.

Since Kirlia is a Psychic/Fairy type Pokemon, it is weak against Poison, Ghost, and Steel moves. Any Pokemon of those types have a good shot at beating Kirlia, but the five strongest Pokemon to use against Kirlia are:

  • Metagross

Use Bullet Punch and Meteor Mash.

  • Gengar

Use Lick or Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball.

  • Chandelure

Use Hex and Shadow Ball.

  • Deoxys (Attack)

Use Poison Jab and Zap Cannon.

  • Dialga

Use Metal Claw and Iron Head.

The Pokemon Fashion Week Event ends Friday, Oct. 9 at 1AM EST.
