Pokémon GO Uxie Counters, Raid, Moveset, And More

Pokémon GO is continuing in the Season of Mischief, and Uxie is one of the raid bosses that will make an appearance after Lugia leaves the rotation.

When Uxie rotates into raids, it won't be the only one from the full trio of Lake Guardians. Depending on the region that players are in, one of three Lake Guardians will be available in five-star raids.

Uxie will appear in the Asia-Pacific region, Mesprit in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India, and Azelf in the Americas and Greenland. All three Legendary Pokémon will make their return on September 14 at 10:00 local time, and there is even a chance to catch a shiny. But first, they must be defeated, and for that, you need to assemble the best Uxie counters in Pokémon GO.

The Best Pokémon GO Uxie Counters For Raids

Like the other Lake Guardians, Uxie is a pure Psychic-type Pokémon. It makes choosing a team that much easier due to simpler weaknesses. Types that players will want to utilize against Uxie include Bug, Dark, and Ghost-type Pokémon.

  • (Mega) Gengar: Lick (Fast Attack) + Shadow Ball (Charge Attack)
  • Hydreigon: Bite (Fast Attack) + Dark Pulse (Charge Attack)
  • Houndoom: Snarl (Fast Attack) + Foul Play (Charge Attack)
  • Yveltal: Snarl (Fast Attack) + Dark Pulse (Charge Attack)
  • Darkrai: Snarl (Fast Attack) + Shadow Ball (Charge Attack)
  • Chandelure: Hex (Fast Attack) + Shadow Ball (Charge Attack)
  • Giratina: Shadow Claw (Fast Attack) + Shadow Ball (Charge Attack)
  • Tyranitar: Bite (Fast Attack) + Crunch (Charge Attack)

Once players defeat Uxie, they will be rewarded with Premier Balls for an encounter with the Legendary Pokémon. How many are rewarded will depend on performance and friends in the raid. Makes sure to throw efficient curve balls and use berries.

Best Uxie Moveset In Pokémon GO

Uxie doesn't have a long list of moves, and only one charge attack separates it from the rest of the trio. Otherwise, their movesets are similar in nature.

Fast Attack: Confusion

Confusion is one of two fast attacks, with the other being Extrasensory. They both have very similar energy per second gains, but Confusion hits significantly harder. Uxie will certainly benefit from the Confusion stats.

Charge Attack: Future Sight and Thunder

Future Sight is the priority charge attack for Uxie, especially because of the STAB on the Psychic-type ability. It's an easy choice for the initial charge attack in the moveset.

Thunder will give players another option that has a similar charge rate and offers a separate attack type.

Uxie certainly has a simple moveset without many options, so there's not much else to learn about the Lake Guardian. But the Legendary is still a raid boss that must be defeated, and best of luck in the five-star raid.
