But every Pokemon has a weakness – including Tapu Bulu.
What is Tapu Bulu’s Weakness?
As a Grass and Fairy-type Pokemon, Tapu Bulu is weak against Flying, Poison, Steel, Fire, and Ice-type moves. Tapu Bulu takes 4x damage from Poison-type moves and 2x damage from Flying, Steel, Fire, and Ice-type moves.
Players can use Fire-type Pokemon like Flareon and Poison-type Pokemon like Naganadel to heavily damage Tapu Bulu. 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 Tapu Bulu quickly before it can overwhelm your team.
Pokemon that know Fire-type and Poison-type moves like Fire Blast and Sludge Bomb deal extra damage to Tapu Bulu.
