Pokémon GO Raid Guide – Celesteela’s Best Counters & Weaknesses

Take down this Ultra Beast!

Celesteela is joining the list of Ultra Beasts available in Pokémon GO. Since Ultra Beasts like Celesteela and its UB counterpart Kartana can be tough opponents to face off against in Pokémon GO, it is always nice to run through a Raid Guide to prepare for the battle. Raid Guides let players know which Pokémon and typings are best to take into the fight to increase the chances of success. Celesteela is only available in the Southern Hemisphere, while Kartana is exclusive to the Northern Hemisphere.

Celesteela is a Steel and Flying-type Pokémon in Pokémon GO. This means that Fire and Electric-type attackers are the best to bring into battle against this foe, as they will hit the hardest. These two typings can deal massive amounts of damage to the Ultra Beast and are reliable, especially if a smaller team of trainers is taking on this Five-Star Raid.
