"Pokemon Go" may be one of the trickiest games to accomplish, given that some of the ways to get around its tough challenges may require more analysis. That being said, beating some of the most formidable gym defenders in the game may need a little push.

Originally, "Pokemon Go" is a game for those who wish to hunt and collect various Pokemon species accordingly. However, the concept may become stale swiftly if no action comes forth, which in this case, is the gym defense.

As per Mobile and Apps, weaknesses of the aforementioned gym defenders holds the key to getting past these threats in "Pokemon Go." A particular example is the ever-popular Dragonite, whose weaknesses are Ice, Fairy, Dragon and Rock type; with the suggested counter picks are Wigglytuff, Clefable, Cloyster, Dewgong, Gyarados, Golem, Jinx and Lapras.

While in the talk of Lapras, the "Pokemon Go" creature is also no stranger to being one of the more dominant defenders. Being weak against Electric, Rock, Fighting and Grass Types, the most efficient creatures recommended include Magneton, Omastar, Arcanine, Poliwrath, Magmar and Rapidash.

According to BGR, the highly-demanded Snorlax is weak against Fighting Pokemon, wherein Clefable and Golem are the most viable candidates. As "Pokemon Go" holds the Eevee-lution Vaporeon as one of the intriguing creatures, it is naturally weak against Electric, as well as Grass types.

Gyarados is one of the highlighted creatures of "Pokemon Go," given that it starts from the rather wimpy Magikarp. Being weak against Electric types, it is recommended that Magneton, Raichu, Voltorb, Jolteon and Electabuzz be used for it.

"Pokemon Go" has some odd creatures to put in front of its fans, such as Slowbro. The said creature is allegedly weak against Electric, Grass, Ghost and Bugs, which points to Tangela, Parasect and Exeggutor as the more viable picks.

Following the weakness list for the aforementioned "Pokemon Go" creatures may prove to be effective in defeating these powerful gym defenders. Stay tuned for more gaming updates and the latest news here at Gamenguide.
