Pokemon Go | 11 New Shadow Pokemon Announced

Pokemon Go | 11 New Shadow Pokemon Announced

Hey there fellow true believer, how's your Sunday going?

I'm just about to lace up my boots and take advantage of this Ralts Community Day, but before I do, I think you should know the Shadow Pokemon Team Rocket will be using against you!

Not only will this blog post go over the new Pokemon, but I'll give you a list of the best counters to use against them as well. I got your back ;)




Most trainers should be able to beat a Poliwag easily, but if for some reason you can't, the best counters include Raikou & Zapdos, both with all electric attacks.


Grimer / Muk


I know the GIF is of Muk, I couldn't find any Grimers so gimme a break. Anyways, when going up against this guy, head in with a strong Mewtwo or Azelf with full psychic attacks.


Drowzee / Hypno


Going up against these sleepy 'mon is a breeze. Throw out either Giratina with Ghost attacks or Tyrantitar with Dark attacks to get the job done.




This little runt shouldn't slow you down much with after blasting it with a double-water attack Kyogre or double-grass attack Sceptile.




Fun fact; Scyther was one of my favorite Pokemon for a while until I just grew out of it. Battle this blademaster with all-rock attacks Tyranitar, Rampardos, or Rhyperior.




This is the easiest Pokemon to beat in the game, but just for shits and giggles, throw an Alolan Exxegutor at it.




Both evolutions are weak against Fighting, Ground, Rock, and Water, so throw a Kyogre or Tyranitar at either one.




Finally, TGR corrupted poor & adorable little Ralts. Your best option here is anything Ghost, Poison, or Steel, so toss a Gengar or Metagross at this little guy.




That wraps it up for today, enjoy this month's Community Day and stay safe!

Have a great weekend,

Anime Ape

P.S. This is probably the most intense item in our catalog; a Mewtwo Freeform Beach Towel.
