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