Pokemon Scarlet and Violet bring some new additions to the game, which means there are plenty of new pocket monsters to collect and battle. When you fight certain Pokémon, it’s not clear what type they are initially, so learning what moves to use is very important! if you want to know what Nihilego’s Weaknesses are then we will walk you through them in this guide.
If you want to see all the weaknesses and strengths of any Pokemon, head over to our Pokemon Type Chart guide!
Nihilego is a Rock and Poison-type Pokemon, which means it has weaknesses to Ground, Steel, Water, and Psychic-type moves. It is particularly weak to Ground, making it the ideal type to run. It has no immunities, but is resistant to Normal, Flying, Poison, Bug, Fire, and Fairy-type attacks.
While any Ground, Steel, Water, and Psychic-type moves will be enough to finish Nihilego off, you’ll want to focus on Physical Attack moves if you have them. Nihilego has much higher Special Defense, which means you’ll have a lot more luck using Special Attacks.
As for the specific Pokemon you want to avoid in the battle against Nihilego, you’ll want to make sure you leave out Bug, Fire, Flying, Ice, Fairy, and Grass. Everyone has at least one weakness against Nihilego’s attacks. Nihilego also runs Psychic moves, so be careful when using Fighting- or Poison-type Pokemon.
