But every Pokemon has a weakness – including Celesteela.
What is Celesteela Weak Against?
As a Flying and Steel-type Pokemon, Celesteela is weak against Fire and Electric-type moves. Celesteela takes 2x damage from these moves.
Players can use Electric-type Pokemon like Toxtricity and Fire-type Pokemon like Flareon to heavily damage Celesteela. These Pokemon benefit from the 50% STAB damage bonus when using moves that match their type, so they’re a great option if you want to beat Celesteela quickly to whittle down its high HP and defenses.
Pokemon that know Electric-type and Fire-type moves like Zap Cannon and Flare Blitz can also deal extra damage to Celesteela.
