Overview

Gyrados is one of the hardest Pokemon to get. But getting him is very much worth the effort, as he is one of the strongest non-Legendary Pokemon. Because of this you would usually find Gyrados defending Gyms.

Tips and strategies

Recommended attack types

RockElectric

One of the things that makes Gyrados so strong is that it is only weak to 2 types: Rock and Electric. And even then Gyrados could use Water-type attacks to beat any Rock-type Pokemon.

Electric-type is super effective effective!

Electric is much more recommended because:

  1. It is double super effective against Gyrados.
  2. because Gyrados can use Water-type attacks to beat Rock-type Pokemon.
