You should use Fairy, Flying, or Psychic-type moves against this Pokemon and avoid Dark, Bug, and Rock-type moves. Mewtwo is once again a solid option and you can use the same Psycho Cut and Psychic Strike combo that works well against Nidoking.
Grass and Water moves work best against Rhyperior. You want to use moves like Hydro Cannon and Frenzy Plant to take down the Pokemon quickly. Fast moves like Razor Leaf and Waterfall should create openings for you to follow up with a Charge Move to shut down your foe.
