Pokemon Go Arlo December 2021 Pokemon Lineup and Best Counters

Team GO Rocket Leader Arlo is probably the easiest to beat out of the other two Team GO Rocket Leaders, Sierra and Cliff. However, if this makes you think that he is a piece of cake to defeat, well, we have to inform you that that is not the case. If you do not have strong Pokemon, you are destined to fail this battle.

Team GO Rocket Leader Arlo is back in Pokemon GO, and we are ready to defeat him and his new Shadow Pokemon lineup. His line-up changes quite frequently, making Arlo a bit tricky to battle.

There are a few Pokemon that are a safe choice against Arlo, but to be sure and thorough, we decided to make a list of Arlo’s line-up, and which Pokemon and movesets are best to use against him.
