Moltres is one Legendary Pokemon that can be defeated quite easily, but how?

Last week, Pokemon Go had added Articuno as a Legendary Pokemon and now the latest addition has been the Moltres.

Pokemon Go just added Moltres as its latest Legendary Pokemon and unexpectedly, players, who flocked to Legendary Pokemon's raids, found out that Moltres wasn't that much a difficult fight as it was Articuno last week.

While mostly it took teams of six players to beat Articuno, a Legendary Moltres raid could be cleared by a team of four experienced players. Reportedly, a Moltres with the charge move Heat Wave can be taken down by three players if the Raid teams are strong enough and that's mainly because Heat Wave is a relatively weak charge attack.

So why is Moltres so easy to fight with, really?

It's mostly because a lot more strong counters to Moltres are there than there were for Articuno. While Articuno had a double weakness to Rock-Type attacks, its powerful Ice-Type moves could knock out even Pokemon like Golem or Rhydon in a single move. Moltres has that same double weakness to Rock-Type moves, the difference is that but Golem, Rhydon, and other Pokemon are all resistant to Fire-Type moves, which is Moltres' specialty. Golem can absorb multiple Heat Waves while dishing out its own powerful Stone Edge attack.
