Legendary Pokémon Palkia Raid Boss
You would have already have started to see Palkia within Pokémon Go during Raid Battles and will be seen during the raids all the way until 28th February 1:00 p.m. PST.
Palkia is a Dragon and Water-type Pokémon so you will need to find Pokémon that also has Dragon-type moves or Fairy-type moves. It is ideal to find Fairy-types as you may have noticed, Dragon-type is super effective against other Dragon-type. In other words, Palkia will be super effective against you too. However, Dragon-type may be your best bet to defeat the Legendary Raid Boss.
Dragon-type is one of the strongest types of Pokémon so our list of counter Pokémon for Palkia are mainly Dragon-types. You will need to level up your Pokémon to make sure they are strong and powerful enough to overcome Palkia.
The best Pokémon to use against Palkia are Rayquaza, Dragonite and Palkia with their fast Dragon Tail moves and Outrage or Draco Meteor Charge moves. If you do not have any of these Pokémon, you can use Salamence, Latios or Latias as good counters.
All these Dragon-type Pokémon will be vulnerable to the Legendary Boss Palkia. If they are no match for Palkia than you can use these Fairy-type Pokémon as good counters, Gardevoir or Togekiss.
