Are you ready to brave the Doomsday Pokemon as a powerful mega Raid boss? From Oct. 22 to Nov. 5, Mega Absol will be appearing in raids the world over. While it may look like an gothic mix of hellhound meets All Dogs Go to Heaven, this dark-type is nothing to be afraid of.

Here’s how to beat Mega Absol in Pokemon GO.

How to Beat Mega Absol in Pokemon GO

Despite being a mega evolution, Absol is still Absol, so it still has the same strengths and weaknesses of its normal counterpart. It is a pure dark-type, so is weakest against fighting, fairy, and bug-types with resistance to psychic and ghost-types.

Absol has the following stats:

  • Mega Raid CP: 48,520
  • Maximum CP: 3732
  • Maximum HP: 149
  • Attack: 314
  • Defense: 130
  • Stamina: 163

Obviously, despite its high Raid CP, it’s still quite the glass cannon. Trainers shouldn’t feel too intimidated walking into this Raid—especially if they have a good team at their side.

We recommend the following Pokemon to go up against Mega Absol:

  • Lucario (Counter + Aura Sphere)
  • Conkeldurr (Counter + Dynamic Punch)
  • Breloom (Counter + Dynamic Punch)
  • Machamp (Counter + Dynamic Punch)
  • Heracross (Counter + Megahorn)
  • Volcarona (Bug Bite + Bug Buzz)

Trainers who already have an Absol can evolve it into a Mega Absol using 200 Mega Absol energy. After that initial transformation, each additional one only needs 40 energy.
