Rock type Pokemon will be your best counter in this fight.

  • Shadow Tyranitar (Smack Down, Stone Edge)
  • Rampardos (Smack Down, Rock Slide)
  • Mega Charizard Y (Fire Spin, Blast Burn)
  • Rhyperior (Smack Down, Rock Wrecker)
  • Terrakion (Smack Down, Rock Slide)

How Many Trainers Are Needed?

If you have all the best counters then Articuno can be brought down with two trainers.

Otherwise, it's better to be safe and bring three or four trainers in your party.
