Trainers,

As all of us have always struggled against what type of Attacker should we use against the Gym defenders this trick surely comes handy making it easier for the trainer. This trick utilizes the combination with the search option in the Pokemon view and uses text replacement to quickly find the best counters.

Example –

  1. !fire -> ground,rock,water
  2. xsnorlax -> Machamp,Heracross,Alakazam

When you want to attack a fire type Pokemon, Just type !fire in the search bar and it expands to ground, rock, water, showing you all the Pokemon that are of those types.

When you want to attack Raid Boss Snorlax, Just type xsnorlax in the search bar and it expands to Machamp, Heracross, Alakazam, showing you all High DPS Counters of Snorlax

Here’s how to do use this trick:

Android

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Scroll down and select “Language & input“.
  3. Select virtual keyboard (you may be able to skip this step)
  4. Select manufacturer’s keyboard
