Due to Mega Banette's entry to Dazzling Gleam, this information can be in two components: battling w/o Dazzling Gleam and w/ Dazzling Gleam.

If Mega Banette doesn't have Dazzling Gleam, this can be one of many best Mega Raid you possibly can go in opposition to. So long as you may have good Darkish kind counters of no less than Stage 30, you may have an honest likelihood. Hydreigon is the most secure counter to make use of because it resists all however Dazzling Gleam, and doesn't really want Brutal Swing so long as its stage is excessive sufficient. With Brutal Swing, nonetheless, it's a prime counter.

To indicate you ways nice Hydreigon is with Brutal Swing, once I ran simulations, two gamers with no Friendship bonus, every with 6 Stage 25 Hydreigons with 0% IVs, can duo Mega Banette. Think about utilizing maxed or close to maxed Hydreigons as a substitute, plus Friendship Bonus.

If Mega Banette does have Dazzling Gleam, steer clear of Darkish varieties and lean into your Ghost varieties as a substitute. Gengar (each Mega and common) and Chandelure can be the very best counters. You possibly can nonetheless use Darkish-types like Darkrai and Yveltal, so long as you dodge the Dazzling Gleam.

Mega Banette Duo

As talked about earlier, Mega Banette may be duoed if ready beforehand. For Mega Evolution, both Darkish or Ghost Mega can be nice, however Mega Houndoom would be the most secure one because it doesn't concern Dazzling Gleam.

  • Talking of Dazzling Gleam, in opposition to that transfer, Mega Gengar can be nice together with Gengar, Chandelure, and Mewtwo with Shadow Ball. Darkrai, Yveltal, and Giratina-Origin may be serviceable when you dodge.
  • In opposition to Shadow Ball, any Darkish-type can be at play right here, however Hydreigon, Weavile, Yveltal, and Darkrai are nice choices. You should utilize the identical mons in opposition to Thunder, however Hydreigon and Giratina-Origin are honorable mentions for resisting Electrical strikes.

So long as you may have the counters which might be least stage 30 and have the Friendship Bonus, you should not have any concern beating Mega Banette in a duo.

Mega Banette Moveset Evaluation

Mega Banette can have the next strikes in a raid battle and when captured as its base type:

Quick Strikes Cost Strikes
  • Shadow Claw Ghost
  • Hex Ghost
  • Shadow Ball Ghost
  • Thunder Electrical
  • Dazzling Gleam Fairy

Whereas it's true that Shadow Ball will get STAB (or identical kind assault bonus), since you'd typically use Darkish varieties to beat Mega Banette, Shadow Ball is the very best Charged Transfer you possibly can go in opposition to, until you're planning on beating it utilizing Ghost varieties. Even when you resist it, attempt to dodge as a lot as you possibly can since it's nonetheless highly effective.

Thunder, whereas much less highly effective, could be very onerous to dodge. It additionally eliminates Mega Gyarados and Yveltal within the operating for counters, however Dragon varieties like Hydreigon and Giratina-Origin will take their place.

Dazzling Gleam would be the bane of your Darkish varieties, however Ghost varieties can have their day in opposition to the transfer, since they solely concern the Shadow Ball variant.

Shadow Claw has STAB, however doesn't generate power in a short time, and Hex has yet another base energy than Shadow Claw and generates power a lot sooner, making it the deadliest quick transfer, particularly if it's mixed with Dazzling Gleam or Shadow Ball.

The way to Get Mega Banette

As a way to get Mega Banette you'll need 200 Mega Power for the preliminary evolution, then it's doable to evolve that exact Banette once more without cost after a cooldown interval. The cooldown interval is determined by their mega stage, and you need to use mega power to evolve faster when you don't need to look ahead to the top of the cooldown interval.

Mega Power may be obtained through Mega Banette Raids, and upon getting advanced Mega Banette, you possibly can earn 5 Mega Power per sweet whereas strolling it as your buddy. You possibly can stroll any Shupper or Banette to earn Mega Power, so long as you may have beforehand advanced one to register it to your Mega Pokédex.
