Pokemon Go Team Rocket Boss Giovanni can be Defeated with one Pokemon

A lot of Pokemon Go players, including myself, are struggling to defeat Team Go Rocket Boss Giovanni and catch the Shadow Legendary Pokemon. I’ve tried many different Pokemon lineups, moves, etc, and I guess I was wrong. It looks like we don’t need a group of Pokemon to beat the Boss…we need only one specific Pokemon. Yes, you read that right – one Pokemon can do the job!

To be honest, I did a lot of research to find and share the best Pokemon lineup to defeat Giovanni, and it seems like we don’t need a group of Pokemon to beat TGR Boss, as it can be defeated with only one Pokemon – Poliwrath. Yes, that’s right, lvl39 Poliwrath, 87% 12/13/14 with Mud Shot (Legacy move)/Ice Punch and Power-Up Punch can ‘destroy’ Giovanni.

EpicSnail247 decided to test his luck and skills against Giovanni and he ended up defeating TGR’s Boss with one Poliwrath.

It took him approximately 3 minutes to defeat Giovanni and enter the Pokemon Go book of records (there is none btw) as the first Pokemon Go player who defeated Team Go Rocket Boss using only one Pokemon.

Take a look at the Epic Battle below.
