How to beat Articuno? Pokemon Go


How do you beat Articuno? Pokemon Go questions

Articuno is a legendary pokemon in the massively popular game Pokemon Go.  It also the mascot of Team Mystic aka the Blue Team in Pokemon Go.  Its status as an epic rare Pokemon combined with its elevated status as a mascot of Team Mystic have made one of the most popular Pokemon in fan art and merchandise.

It would be hard to say that Articuno is popular within the game itself for one very good reason.  The Legendary Pokemon Articuno has not yet been released.

Articuno is said to be extremely powerful.  In many of the Pokemon games Articuno is said to be so powerful that it alters the weather in areas it inhabits.

NA: Trophy info The air around Articuno is always cool, and it can make snow fall on even the hottest of days. It must be the perfect Pokémon to have around in summer! Then again, do you really want to be the one to use a Legendary bird Pokémon as an ice machine? Let's just think this through for a minute.
Pokemon Yellow - A legendary bird Pokémon. It freezes water that is contained in winter air and makes it snow.
Obviously, given its stature in the Pokemon Lore when Articuno is released its going to be very powerful with a very high CP.

How do you catch Articuno?
I have heard many rumors that I will discuss on where Articuno has been rumored to lurk.  Official word from Pokemon Go developer Niantic is that no Legendary pokemon will be released until after the game has been rolled out globally.  Additionally. they have hinted that some of the Legendary Pokemon may be given out as prizes or rewards.

One curious thing that the company has confirmed is that some Articuno and other legendary Pokemon were accidentally released.  Some people think that these Legendary pokemon were given out by Niantic customer reps when angry people called.  The official word on these Pokemon is that Niantic has since pulled them all back.  These Articunos are what many people saw at gyms and in pictures online.  Other pictures are likely just fakes.

This Ohio couple I do really think had a real Articuno.  You can make your decision.  They say this Articuno was given by the company when they complained that one of their pokemon disappeared.  The Articuno has since been removed from their account.

Catching the legendary birds-
Is Articuno on top of mount Everest?  No and this guy in the video actually proves it.  He uses a hack to move to the location at the top of Mount of Everest.  He is also uses the same method to search Area 51 and finds nothing.  Generally my experience is similar to his in that high population areas are much better for catching Pokemon then these crazy out of the way locations.

HOW TO BEAT Articuno

Battle with Articuno: 

Remember that Pokemon Types are very IMPORTANT 
Read this --->  Pokemon Types Explained

You have entered battle with glorious. legend and as you gawk at its beauty you realize its swooping in to take you down.  Its time to bring it down!

Alright strategy time well lets start with this Articuno is an ICE / FLYING  type hybrid pokemon.

Hybrid Pokemon always seem to be a bit more complicated when figuring out what to use but interestingly ICE and FLYING have to similar weaknesses in Rock and Steel.   If you have a good pokemon in either of those types I would use it as it will cover all of the bases.

Some other types are good against either FLYING or ICE.
Electric Pokemon are good against FLYING.  Fire Pokemon are good against ICE.  The attacks from either an Electric or Fire  should receive a type based bonus.  However defensively you are rolling the dice as Articuno will likely have a mixture of ICE and FLYING based attacks.  Depending what it throws out at you will determine whether you get a defensive bonus.

Considering these Pokemon I think your best bet of popular Pokemon is to use Golem.  Golem is the final evolution of Geodude/Graveler.  Geodudes are pretty common in my area and I have seen a few Golems around.

One rock hybrid that is worth a look if you have it is Rhydon.  Those can be very powerful and I think both the Rock and Ground attacks will work well against Articuno.

I have not many Steel pokemon at all. The one exception is Magnemite which is an Electric / Steel hyrid which I have caught two of.  If you catch enough Magnemite you could evolve it to Magneton which I am sure would be a powerful match up against Articuno.

If you don't have a solid Rock or Steel pokemon then you need to roll the dice and use Fire  or Electric Pokemon good choices here would be Arcanine, Flareon, Ninetails, Charizard, Jolteon, and Raichu.
