Cliff Pokemon Go June 2021: Shadow Pokemon and Counters

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 Cliff is one of the three TGR Leaders and is one of the hardest to beat. However, having the right counters in a battle would definitely make things less stressful.

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