Best Counters and Weaknesses Against Sierra

With all the new Mega Levels this month you will be wanting to get started with leveling and ultimately battling others in the experience. For Spring, an official blog post noted all of the possible Pokemon that you can battle against when competing against Sierra. The first Pokemon you’re up against will always be Drowzee. For the second round, it can either be Blaziken, Lapras, or Sharpedo and as for the third round it can be Nidoqueen, Houndoom, or Shiftry.

You should bring a bug, fighting, and water or ground-type pokemon to the battle against Sierra. Here are some of the best counters against each pokemon with specific type advantages noted:

  • Drowzee, Sharpedo, and also Shiftry — Bringing Scyther, or Scizor can give you the upper edge against Drowzee due to the fact you are battling with a bug-type pokemon against them. You will want to be using fast attacks on Drowzee and charged attacks when you have the chance to.
  • Blaziken, Houndoom, and Nidoqueen — This is where your water pokemon can shine, bringing a pokemon such as Kyogre will see these pokemon being sent with the waves to the ocean sands faster than you can say Nidoqueen.
  • Lapras — For Lapras, they have a weakness against grass and electric-type pokemon so continuing to utilize the grass-type pokemon you brought with you can continue to be an excellent advantage here.

Be sure to bring all of the Pokemon types that you need to the battle with Sierra and you will achieve victory quickly! You may even want to try and compete against Giovanni during the month!
