Having only three weaknesses, there are a limited number of counters. Both Ghost and Bug deal increased damage, but take neutral damage; while Dark both deals increased damage and double resists Psychic moves. Cresselia, however, has a trick up its sleeve – Moonblast.
Moonblast is the strongest Fairy Charge Move in PvP, plus Fairy moves deal increased damage to Dark Pokémon. Therefore, the key is to use Steel or Fire Pokémon, as counters, especially if they have dark moves.
