Kyurem Pokémon GO Counters will be important to know as you prepare to take on the Boundary Pokémon when it arrives in five-star raids later this summer.
Originally discovered in the Unova region and first met by Trainers in Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, Legendary Pokémon Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem will soon be making their Pokémon GO debut in five-star raids! https://t.co/OulCpObqCS pic.twitter.com/KgSqiLZHDe

Kyurem is a dual Dragon and Ice type, weak to Fighting, Rock, Fire, Steel, Dragon and Fairy type attacks. Luckily, most of those Pokémon also resist the Ice and Dragon moves Kyurem will use.

Upcoming raid bosses Terrakion and Reshiram are both solid choices against Kyurem. Terrakion is a bit of a glass cannon, but the Rock and Fighting typing it has will allow it to deal massive damage against Kyurem while shoring up its attacks. Likewise, both of Reshiram’s types are strong against Kyurem. Ice will do neutral damage against Reshiram, but you just have to watch out for any Draogn moves.
You also can’t go wrong with a solid Rock type Pokémon like Tyranitar or Rampardos. These Pokémon are just good for most raids, as they do tons of damage while resisting many of the strongest attacks.

Lucario is another good counter to Reshiram. Like Terrakion, both of its types counter the Ice type Kyurem. You can’t go wrong with some other strong Steel types like Metagross, either.
Lastly, you can try to exploit it’s Dragon weakness. Dialga and Palkia neutralize the Ice while being able to attack back with Steel and Dragon moves. Don’t use any dual Dragon and Flying types, as the Ice moves will punch a hole right through Pokémon like Salamence or Rayquaza.
