Mega Gengar, the Mega variant of the final evolution in the Gastly family, is a Ghost- and Poison-type Pokémon that serves as a Mega Raid Boss in Pokémon GO. Wielding 50,516 Combat Power, this Kanto Pokémon will require two to three high-level Trainers to be taken down. As a Ghost and Poison Pokémon, this Mega Raid Boss is resistant to Grass-, Fairy-, Normal-, Poison-, Bug-, and Fighting-type attacks. On the other hand, Mega Gengar’s dual-type elemental attribute makes it weak to Ground-, Ghost-, Psychic-, and Dark-type Moves in Pokémon GO. Accordingly, to counter Mega Gengar, Trainers must form a Raid party that can utilize these four elements.
