Attackers & Tips
Lugia will need to be taken on by 9+ trainers who have a team of high CP super effective Pokemon, preferably dark-type, to defeat it.
Tyranitar, Houndoom and Golem would be good choices to face Lugia
Tyranitar and Houndoom as fighting-type and Golem with rock-type moves will deal good damage to Lugia. Aside from these options, you want Pokemon who will deal as much damage as possible (Dragonite, Gyarados etc). Remember to dodge as much as possible, especially the chargemove.
