Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: Iron Valiant Weakness & Counters
Iron Valiant is a Fairy-Fighting dual-type Pokemon with weaknesses to the following types:
- Flying 2x
- Poison 2x
- Steel 2x
- Psychic 2x

So if you’re planning to battle and catch Iron Valiant, then we recommend you select Pokemon with the above-mentioned types. Corviknight is a Steel and Flying-type Pokemon so it is the best counter against the Iron Valiant. Iron Valiant receives twice damage from both Steel and Flying-type attacks. Apart from Corviknight’s ability to use both, it is resistant to Fairy-type attacks. That gives you a better chance against the valiant.
Alternatively, you can use a Revavroom against it. This Pokemon too is a dual-type and can use Steel and Poison attacks. Similarly, you can go with a Tinkaton, which is a Fairy Steel dual-type. Iron Valiant has weaknesses against both these dual types. Make sure you’re not using Dragon-type attacks as it is immune to them.
