Take on this raid with our handy guide.

Tapu Fini is the latest Tapu to enter Pokémon GO raids this season. The seventh generation Legendary will be in raids from May 2 until May 16.

As well as returning to raids, Tapu Fini will have a new exclusive Charged Attack. Any existing Tapu Fini you have will only be able to learn this move via Elite TM.

The move is "Natures Madness." It's a Fairy-type move that hits hard, which will make Tapu Fini more relevant in the Fairy-type category. It's worth picking up a few Tapu Fini with this move to add to your Pokémon GO collection.

Plus, Tapu Fini is also available in the Shiny Form, making this an even better time to grind some Raids.

So, here is everything you need to know to take on Tapu Fini in Pokémon GO.

Best Tapu Fini counters in Pokémon GO:

Tapu Fini has a weakness to Electric, Grass and Poison types. It resists a range of types, including a double resistance to Dragon-type Pokémon.

Here are the best Tapu Fini counters in Pokémon GO:

Mega Sceptile
Bullet Seed & Frenzy Plant
Razor Leaf & Leaf Blade
Mega Gengar
Lick & Sludge Bomb
Thunder Shock & Discharge
Mega Venusaur
Vine Whip & Frenzy Plant
Mega Rayquaza
Air Slash & Dragon Ascent
Mega Manectric
Thunder Fang & Wild Charge
Charge Beam & Fusion Bolt
Magical Leaf & Grass Knot
Therian Forme Thundurus
Volt Switch & Wildbolt Storm
Poison Jab & Sludge Bomb
Thunder Shock & Wild Charge

Some of the best Tapu Fini counters have featured in Pokémon GO recently. Kartana was just in Raids, so will be a great choice for trainers who caught a few of those.

Mega Sceptile is also a great choice, and like Kartana was available. Sceptile is a great counter to Tapu Fini's weakness to Water-types. However, when Mega Evolved Sceptile gains a Dragon-type. That will be weak to Fairy-type moves, meaning it would get hammered by Natures Madness or Moonblast. So, if the Tapu Fini you are fighting has a Fairy-type Charged attack, perhaps use a different Pokémon.
