Previous Story:

Trainers, the Team Go Rocket Leaders Sierra, Arlo, and Cliff are available to battle in the game and our goal is to use the best Pokemon against them in a battle and show them who’s the real boss.

The Team Go Rocket Leader Sierra is one of the three TGR Leaders and to be honest, she can be a big pain, but having the right counters when in battle, would definitely make the battle much easier.

Just like the rest of the TGR team, she uses three different lineups in battle and different Shadow Pokemon and you can find the list of best counters and movesets below.
