Pokemon Go Giovanni December 2021 Pokemon Lineup and Best Counters

Team GO Rocket Leaders are coming back in Pokemon Go and together with them, the main boss, Giovanni, will be causing us some anger, maybe we will be getting a headache, but in the end, we will still manage to beat him.

Giovanni is the most difficult one to beat because he has some strong Pokemon on his side. This time, as a third Pokemon in his line-up, he will use the Legendary Pokemon Lugia, but as a Shadow form (even stronger).

Here is the list of Giovanni’s current line-up, which Pokemon are the best counters, their best moves, and everything else you will be needing to defeat Giovanni.

  1. These are horrible suggestions to use against lugia, psychic isnt weak to psychic and wont do nearly enough damage before his lugia takes you out.

  2. Only use these suggestions if you want to LOSE! Whatever I hit his Lugia with, barely scratched it. Meanwhile, one shot FROM his Lugia completely obliterated mine. Why not refrain from publishing until you know what the hell you’re talking about?

  3. Thank you sooooo much!
    Really!
    It was only after reading this article that I learned better than to ever read another one from your site!
    Seriously, if you’re going to edit an article to force it back into clickbait relevance, (don’t) at least make it somewhat rewarding because unless your goal is losing readers, you’re not achieving anything here.

    1. Hello there!

      We would kindly ask you to tell us what might have been edited, as your opinion states. We do not use clickbait by any means, we are just returning some facts that are back on the trending map. We have very experienced writers in our team, and we are sure that there aren’t any clickbaits, stolen content, and whatnot. What do you mean by making it rewarding? Please do tell.

      Kind regards,
      FGR Team
