How to Beat the Team GO Rocket Leaders

As always counters are going to be very important when fighting the Rocket Leaders, but there is some other strategy that you should know as well.  These important tips for how to beat Arlo, Cliff and Sierra will help you regardless of which Pokemon they are using or you are using.  As a rule of thumb you should always put your lead Pokemon in the second or third slot, then swap to them immediately.  This will make the Team GO Rocket Leaders pause their attacks and you can get some free hits in.  By doing this correctly right when the battle begins you get some quick damage and charge up your Charge Attack.  The second big tip to beat the Team Go Rocket Leaders is to use the aforementioned Charged Attack.  Charged Attacks used at the beginning of this fight in quick succession can take down the shields for Arlo, Cliff and Sierra.

Using those two tips + the correct counters for the Team Go Rocket Leaders and you should have no problem beat them.  Now let’s get into the best counters for Arlo, Cliff and Sierra for October 2021.
