- Dialga using Metal Claw or Iron Head
- Sludge Bomb is used by Mega Gengar
- Metagross using Bullet Punch or Meteor Mash

Granbull has a total of six attacks that can be used, equally distributed between fast and charged types. At least one of them should be a major concern if you want to use Steel-Type Pokemon to combat Granbull and take advantage of one of its limited potential vulnerabilities.
- Charm (Fairy)
- Bite (Dark)
- Snarl (Dark)
- Crunch (Dark)
- Close Combat (Fighting)
- Play Rough (Fairy)

Additional advice for encountering Granbull in Pokemon GO
Granbull benefits from the overcast conditions. Avoid the encounter when it’s foggy if a trainer isn’t sure how they’ll do in a raid against it.
A Dragon-type Pokemon is a great alternative if entering a raid with a steel or poison Pokemon is not possible in Pokemon GO. Even if the Pokemon may not have the strongest attack, it will be able to survive the harm Granbull deals because dragon Pokemon are immune to fairy types.
