But every Pokemon has a weakness – including Tapu Koko.
What is Tapu Koko’s Weakness?
As an Electric and Fairy-type Pokemon, Tapu Koko is weak against Poison and Ground-type moves. Tapu Koko takes 2x damage from these moves.
Players can use Ground-type Pokemon like Garchomp and Poison-type Pokemon like Naganadel to heavily damage Tapu Koko. 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 Koko quickly before it can overwhelm your team.
Pokemon that know Ground-type and Poison-type moves like Earthquake and Sludge Bomb deal extra damage to Tapu Koko.
