Passimian is making its Pokemon GO debut in the 2023 World Championships event and is a 3-Star Raid boss throughout the event.

As a Tier 3 Raid boss, we suggest you battle Passimian as part of a team of at least three Pokemon trainers. These trainers should also have strong counters to exploit Passimian’s weaknesses.

Luckily, there are three attack types that deal additional damage to Passimian!

What Type is Passimian?

Passimian is a Fighting-type Pokemon.

As it is a single-type Pokemon, it has just three weaknesses and three weaknesses to consider when battling it.

Best Pokemon to Counter Passimian in Raids

The best Pokemon to counter Passimian include strong Psychic-types such as Mewtwo, Lunala, Hoopa, and Espeon. This is because they all exploit its weakness to Psychic-type attacks.

Additionally, Mega Pokemon like Mega Gardevoir and Mega Alakazam are also very useful when battling Passimian. They can deal plenty of damage and also boost your Pokemon that share a type.
