Terrakion In the Meta

Raid Meta – Smack Down + Rock Slide

Terrakion is a fantastic Rock-Type attacker! Its fighting duel-typing grants it a resistance when used against Bugs but negates the usual resistance Rock-Types have against Flying.

It has lower raw DPS (Damage Per Second) compared to Rampardos, but significantly higher TDO (Total Damage Output). On the whole, they trade places back and forth as the best Rock-Type. Really it’s more comparable to Smack Down Tyranitar in its bulky utility, but with strictly better performance.

Notably, even against Ice-Types that are weak to Fighting, it’s Rock moveset is preferred.  It is not that useful as a Fighting-Type with it’s current move pool (performing worse than Pinsir).
