Best Movesets and Counters for Whiscash

Whiscash, the catfish evolution of Barboach, is a Water and Ground-type Pokémon that serves as a Tier 3 Raid Boss in Pokemon GO. With a battle power of 12,440, this Hoenn Pokemon can be soloed by a mid to high level trainer or battled with at least two lower level players. As a Water and Ground-type pocket monster, Whiscash is resistant to Electric, Poison, Rock, Steel, and Fire-type moves. On the other hand, the dual type elemental attribute of this Raid Boss makes it vulnerable to Grass-type abilities in Pokemon GO. Therefore, to counter Whiscash, Trainers will need to form a Raid group that can use this singular item in Pokemon GO.
