How to Counter Bombirdier in Pokemon GO and Weakness

Bombirdier is weak and vulnerable to Electric, Fairy, Ice, and Rock-type attacks but resistant to Ground, Psychic, Dark, Ghost, and Grass moves. You can deal increased damage with Electric, Fairy, Ice, and Rock types of Pokemon. But since this raid boss isn’t effective and immune against Psychic, Dark, and Ghost Pokemon, we recommend not using them during a raid. Furthermore, it only takes half the damage fighting against Grass types, so avoid using it.

With the stats range of 198 Attack, 172 Stamina, and 172 Defense, this Pokemon’s HP range can go up to 158 at level 50. So, you need at least one trainer to beat Bombirdier in a three-star raid.

Bombirdier’s max CP range can go up to 2812 CP which can be further increased with a weather boost. These weathers include Windy and Fog where this Pokemon can deal increased damage to your counters.

So, here’s the list of its moveset:

  • Fast Attacks
    • Rock Throw
    • Wing Attack
