Lickitung weaknesses in Pokemon GO are all the talk as Lickitung Day is here again—as every trainer can tell with this pink Pokemon completely taking over every raid in sight.

The Valentine's Day event is in full swing with trainers encountering the lovely Lickitung around every corner they turn in Pokemon GO. This Pokemon debuted with the first generation and has always been a hallmark of just how bizarre these designs can get. While not always a favorite for battling, Lickitung is one beloved oddity that you won't want to pass up.

Lickitung Weaknesses in Pokemon GO

Lickitung's biggest weakness in Pokemon GO is fighting-type moves. It goes without saying that fighting-types should be your go-to if you end up looking to raid for it. Just about any fighting-type will do as normal-types moves don't have any kind of extra effect against them.

Some of the most effective fighting-type Pokemon in Pokemon GO are Machamp, Lucario, Conkeldurr, and Hariyama. We recommend a move set of "Counter" and either "Dynamic Punch" or "Aura Sphere" for Lucario, specifically.

Alternatively, you could bring ghost-types, as normal-types moves have nearly no effect on ghost-types. This isn't the most recommended strategy, however. Ghost-type moves aren't super effective against normal-type Pokemon. Sticking with the fighting-types will make you life much easier.

The event in question ran on Feb. 15 between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. in your local area.
