Pokemon Go Arlo, Cliff, Sierra, Giovanni November 2022 Shadow Pokemon Lineups and Best Counters

Trainers, the Team Go Rocket Leaders Arlo, Cliff, Sierra, and the Team Go Rocket Boss Giovanni are trying to take over the Pokemon Go world once again. This time they are using different Shadow Pokemon lineups, but thanks to the community, we now know what are the best counters to use against each Team Go Rocket member and how to easily beat them all.

The “evil” team named Team Go Rocket is coming back to Pokemon Go as part of the Team Go Rocket Takeover event that takes place in the most popular game Pokemon Go starting on November 14th and ending on November 17th, 2022. As always, Trainers must use their best assets to chase them away from the Pokemon oasis.

There are three leaders in Team Go Rocket, which are Arlo, Cliff, and Sierra. If you want to challenge them, you first need to have Rocket Radar, which is created after you get six Mysterious Components. Each component is given through defeating Grunts, found at PokeStops. Only after you collect six Mysterious components, only then you can combine them and create the Rocket Radar.

Each Leader has their own Shadow Pokemon team, and each has its own difficulty level. A Trainer’s task is to defeat them as quickly as possible, with the best Pokemon they own.

But which Pokemon line-up is best to use against each Leader?

Fear not, we are here to help you. For that purpose, let’s take a look at the new Shadow Pokemon line-up list and how to beat Arlo, Cliff, Sierra, and Giovanni in battle.
