Attackers & Tips
Articuno will need to be taken on by 9+ trainers who have a team of high CP super effective Pokemon, preferably rock-type, electric-type and fire-type, to defeat it.
Omastar, Jolteon and Flareon would be good choices to face Articuno
Omastar with rock-type moves and his resistance to ice-type moves will deal good damage to Articuno. Electric-types such as Jolteon and fire-types such as Flareon can also deal good damage to Articuno’s ice and flying typing. Aside from these options, you want Pokemon who will deal as much damage as possible (Tyranitar, Dragonite, Gyarados etc). Remember to dodge as much as possible, especially the chargemove.
