Tips To Defeat Articuno
Lessens Physical Damage With Reflect

Use Electric Moves To Paralyze
Articuno has a weakness to Electric-type moves so make sure to use them. You can also cause Paralysis, stunting its attacks, so bring an Electric Pokemon to this fight.
Blizzard & Freeze-Dry Have Wide Damage
When Articuno uses its Blizzard or Freeze-Dry move, they'll hit most of the Pokemon in your party. These moves can also Freeze your Pokemon, making them vulnerable to attacks.
Pressure Causes PP To Drain Faster
Articuno will have an innate Ability called "Pressure" that will cause moves to use up more PP. Equip Efficient Bandannas or use Max Ethers to negate this effect.
