As Guzzlord is a dark, dragon-type Pokemon, there are many options available to trainers to make battling Guzzlord a breeze!

Dark/Dragon Type Pokemon are particularly vulnerable to Fairy Type Pokemon, however, they are not known to be the strongest, so expect to use a fair few Pokemon during battle!

If using Sludge Bomb, Fairy Type Pokemon will be less effective, and will therefore require a different team of Pokemon to defeat it. If Guzzlord uses its Dragon abilities, a Bug Type team of Pokemon could be much more effective.
