How to Counter Farigiraf in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Farigiraf can be tricky to deal with, as it is only weak to Dark and Bug-type attacks. It has great bulk and high Attack and Special Attack, which means it can resist hits and counterattack. Additionally, it can learn a wide variety of coverage moves to counter Pokemon that would normally be strong against it.
We recommend using a Strong Dark of Bug type Pokemon to deal with Farigiraf. Some good candidates would be hydreigon, reyámbitoY lokix. All three are immune to Farigiraf’s psychic attacks and are not susceptible to any strong coverage moves that can take advantage of their weaknesses, except that Hydreigon is 4x weaker than Dazzling Gleam and Lokix is 2x weaker. But both are fast enough to act on Farigiraf, allowing you to take him out first.
