How to Counter Corviknight in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Picking the right Pokemon to battle Corviknight can be tricky, thanks to its stats and type mix. Ideally, you want a Pokemon that focuses on Special Attack and has powerful Fire or Electric-type moves. Corviknight doesn’t have the coverage moves to stop these Pokemon, but it can use Hen house to remove its Flying-typing, making Fire the better option.
We recommend using houndoom, Armarouge, pyroareither volcano against Corviknight. These are all faster than him and have enough Special Attack to take him out quickly. Other good options are Skeledirge, Torkoal, and Camerupt, but these are not faster than Corviknight, so he will need to be careful when using them.
