The Pokemon Company, Niantic

The Ultra Beast Pokémon Nihilego will be returning to Five-Star Raids in Pokémon GO. From 10 a.m. local time on Nov. 23 to 10 a.m. on Dec. 1. The Rock and Poison-type first debuted in the seventh generation of Pokémon back on the 3DS. It will have a combat power range from 2167 CP to 2256 CP along with 240 HP. For Five-Star Raids it is recommended that you attempt it with a friend or two.

Pokémon GO Nihilego: Weakness

Since Nihilego is a Rock and Poison-type it will be weak to Ground, Pyschic, Steel, and Water-type moves. The best strategy is to craft a team of Pokémon that can try any of those super effective type moves. Ground and Steel Pokémon like Excadrill is a great ace to lead your team.
