Nihilego raid counters comprise very strong Ground, Psychic, Water, and Steel kinds. It has a good variety of other counters as well to assist you. The most important thing is that It’s 2x vulnerable to the Ground.
Nihilego Best Moves
According to us, Nihilego’s Acid and Gunk shots are the moves that are fast and charged, respectively, and can be a deadly combination for opponents.

- Gunk Shot (Poison)
- Power Gen (Rock)
