Roaring Moon Counter in Scarlet

Roaring moon certainly doesn’t have a lot of options against Fairy-type moves that, for starters, could be used in your favor.

Koraidon, Chien-pao, and Dragapult could be regarded as the best possible counters to Roaring Moon. You might have trouble acquiring these pokemon, so the best options after those would be Mewoscarada or Mimikyu.

Mewoscarada can actually beat Roaring Moon’s speed, while Mimikyu can survive at least one primary attack from Roaring Moon.

Both of these pokemon can also learn Play Rough, which, if paired with decent attack stats, could wipe out a good chunk of Roaring Moon’s health. 

The only thing you need to keep in mind is that you’ve got to make the first hit, and you’ve got to make it hard enough, as you might not survive a second hit from Roaring Moon. The attack stats do pack a punch!
