Mega Absol in Pokémon Go

Mega Absol is a pure Dark-type Pokémon with a maximum CP of 3732 at level 50. It is weak towards Bug, Fairy, and Fighting-type attacks. If you are a high-level player with the best counters along with yourself which are also boosted, you’ll be able to fight against Mega Absol if you bring another friend along with you into battle. If you are a low-level player, you should have no less than three to five trainers in your team.
