Like all Legendary Pokemon, it is hard to defeat Moltres in Pokemon GO Raids unless you are well-prepared. However, this Legendary Bird isn’t too tough to take down.
All you’ll need to win is a team of at least four high-level Pokemon trainers to battle Moltres, and for these players to have strong counters for the battle.
Luckily, Moltres has a double weakness to exploit too!
Moltres is a Fire/Flying-type Pokemon.
This combination of types means that it has three weaknesses and seven resistances. However, it also gives Moltres a double weakness to exploit!
