How to Beat and Catch Azelf in Pokemon GO

A key piece of information to keep in mind is that all three of these legendary Pokemon are Psychic-type Pokemon. Psychic Pokemon are weak to Ghost, Dark, and Bug-type Pokemon. So to beat them remember to make your team with the Pokemon covering the above types.

Another thing to remember is that these legendary Pokemon have a high attack stat and low defense stat. If you happen to lack Ghost, Dark, and Bug-type pokemon on your team. You can make up for it by having legendary or pseudo legendary Pokemon. Or you can also add pokemon with good attack and defense stats on your team.

Here are my recommendations of Pokemon you should have in your team:
