How Many Trainers Are Needed?

Blastoise is a pretty overpowered Mega Pokemon.

Due to this, you need to be careful during your battle.

Three trainers can actually defeat Mega Blastoise but it's safer to go with five elite trainers.

If you can't manage the top counters then six will be your best bet.

Weather To Look Out For

Watch out for rainy weather conditions.

These conditions will boost Mega Blastoise's attacks.

Although if you choose to fight with an electric type Pokemon it shouldn't really matter.

This is because rainy weather will boost electric types too.
