Picking the best Pokemon Go Suicune counters is made a little bit easier because, like the other legendary dogs from the Johto region, Suicune only has one type. That means there's less to worry about when assembling a team to take them on, and makes the best counters in Pokemon Go fairly easy to understand and work out. So if you want to battle with Water-type with the best team at your disposal, take a look at the best Pokemon Go Suicune counters in raids, along with possible Suicune movesets and how to catch a shiny Suicune.

Since Water-type Pokemon are weak to just Electric and Grass types, you can be fairly safe kitting your party out with your strongest Pokemon from these two categories. If you're wondering which Pokemon are the absolute strongest counters though, this guide is here to help. Below are the top Suicune counters in Pokemon Go, including the most optimal moveset for each choice.
|Mega Venusaur||Vine Whip/Frenzy Plant|
|Zekrom||Charge Beam/Wild Charge|
|Electivire||Thunder Shock/Wild Charge|
|Raikou||Volt Switch/Wild Charge|
|Roserade||Razor Leaf/Grass Knot|
|Venusaur||Vine Whip/Frenzy Plant|
|Tangrowth||Vine Whip/Solar Beam|
|Sceptile||Fury Cutter/Frenzy Plant|
|Mega Gengar||Lick/Shadow Ball|
|Leafeon||Razor Leaf/Solar Beam|

Pokemon Go Suicune moveset
Since Suicune is purely a Water-type, the moveset follows suit, so any of the usual Water-type resistances will fare well. With that said, there are a couple of outliers, including two Ice-type moves which deal double damage to Grass-type Pokemon. So Electric-type counters are definitely recommended if the Suicune you're against has either of the Ice-type attacks.
|Fast Moves||Charged Moves|
|Ice Fang||Ice Beam|
|Row 3 - Cell 0||Water Pulse|
How to catch a shiny Suicune in Pokemon Go
Much like other legendary Pokemon with a shiny variant in the game, every catch encounter after a successful raid has a 1 in 20 chance of being shiny, so 5%. This is a much higher shiny rate than you'd usually find with standard wild Pokemon, and as a bonus, shiny legendaries from raids have a 100% catch rate. This means you can put the Golden Razz Berries away and pop a Pinap Berry instead to maximise your candy gains – just make sure you land the throw and don't miss every ball!
