Iron Moth Weaknesses
Iron Moth is a Fire and Poison-type Pokemon, which means they have weaknesses to Ground, Rock, Water, and Psychic-type moves. Ground is 4x effective, so make that your priority. It has no immunities, but is resistant to Fighting, Poison, Bug, Steel, Fire, Grass, Ice, and Fairy-type attacks.
While any Ground, Rock, Water, and Psychic-type moves will be sufficient to finish off Iron Moth, you will want to focus on Physical Attack moves if you have them. Iron Moth has much higher Special Defense, which means you will have much better luck using Physical Attacks.
As for specific Pokemon you want to avoid bringing into battle against Iron Moth, you will want to make sure to leave Bug, Grass, Ice, Steel, Fairy, and Grass out. They all have at least one weakness to Iron Moth’s attacks. Iron Moth can also run Electric and Flying-type moves, so be on the lookout for those when battling.
That’s everything you need to know about the moves that will be best used against Iron Moth. For more detailed guides, be sure to head to the Pokemon section of our website.
