Tapu Fini Weakness & Type Effectiveness

Tapu Fini is a Water/Fairy-type Pokemon, so it is weak to Poison, Grass, and Electric-type attacks. That said, Tapu Fini has four different move types it can bring to battle: Water, Fighting, Fairy, and Ice. This means Grass-type Pokemon could be susceptible to Super Effective attacks if Tapu Fini uses Ice Beam as its charged attack.

Tapu Fini can know Water Gun, Hidden Power, Ice Beam, and Moonblast, leaving itself vulnerable to most of its weaknesses. There’s only a 1/4 chance that Tapu Fini will bring Ice Beam, which is safe enough for players to risk bringing Grass-type Pokemon. There’s also a 1/4 chance that Tapu Fini brings two Water-type moves to play, which works in a trainer’s favor if they bring a Grass-type.

However, you can’t go wrong with strong Electric or Poison-type Pokemon.

Tapu Fini can be a handful, so we recommend around four trainers team up to take on this water fairy. If each trainer has a team of the Pokemon listed above and they are at least 3,500 CP, then you shouldn’t have any issues taking Tapu Fini down.
