How to beat Ursaring in Pokemon Go

How to beat Ursaring!

Grizzly Bears are immense and powerful animals that are dangerous so it should come as no surprise that Ursaring the Pokemon based off of a bear is also powerful.  Ursaring is the evolution from the Pokemon Teddiursa.  Teddiursa might be the cutest pokemon of all.  He is a cute looking Teddi bear but after Teddiursa evolves into Ursaring there is no mistaking that it is a force to be reckoned with.

Ursaring is number #6 on the max CP list for Gen 2 Pokemon.

Ursaring - 2760 CP Max !!!!

I have caught one Teddiursa in my limited playing time of Pokemon Gen 2.  My guess is that it is Uncommon but not rare.  This will likely make Ursaring fairly common in gyms down the road as people catch and evolve enough Teddiursas to evolve Ursaring.

"Although it is a good climber, it prefers to snap trees with its forelegs and eat fallen Berries." Pokedex entry from Pokemon HeartGold
Ursaring is a Normal Pokemon with a weakness to Fighting Type attacks.

Ursaring's Moves in Pokemon Go

Quick Moves
Ursaring has 2 possible quick moves:

  • Metal Claw - Steel type move
  • Counter - Fighting type move

Special Moves
Ursaring has 3 possible special moves:

  • Play Rough - Fairy type move
  • Hyper Beam - Normal type move
  • Close Combat - Fighting type move

An Urasring with an all fighting move set would work very well against Rock, Dark, Steel, Ice and Normal Pokemon.  It would not get the defensive weakness to rock Pokemon that Fighting Pokemon have but would have the Fighting bonus against Rock Pokemon.

Now for the ultimate question!  How do you beat, kill, defeat Ursaring.  What Pokemon is a counter Ursaring?


When consulting the numbers right now the clear favorite counter for Ursaring offensively is MaChamp.  Other Strong candidates who would do a lot of damage to Ursaring are Heracross, Gengar, Primeape, Hitmonchan, Dragonite (W Dragon Breath, Outrage)


Machamp is just clearly the winner offensively against Ursaring.  Machamp is strong Fighting Pokemon and Ursaring has a weakness to Fighitng moves.
The top Machamp move combination against Ursaring is Counter / Dynamic Punch this is a great move set if you can find a good Machmap with it keep it.

In order the best move sets for a Machamp are:

  • Counter / Dynamic Punch
  • Counter / Close Combat
  • Counter / Cross Chop
  • Counter / Submission
  • Counter / Stone Edge

For the other pokemon primarily look for those Pokemon to have Fighting moves.  Once again focus on these Pokemon:

  • Primape
  • Heracross
  • Hitmonchan
  • Gengar
  • Dragonite


For a defensive style counter you could try Steelix who generally has some of the highest defensive measures against Ursarings move sets.

Steelix has low offensive capabalities against Ursaring however so I would generally favor the offensive option with Machamp.

Another defensive option is Shuckle.
