Pokemon Go Giovanni November 2022 Lineup and Counters

It is time to talk about a certain character, and that character is the Team Go Rocket Boss named Giovanni. Even when we say the name we get chills. Giovanni is back again, and this time he uses different Shadow Pokemon.

Yes, that is right. Team Go Rocket Boss Giovanni is back in Pokemon Go, and he decided to use even stronger Pokemon than the last time we saw him. This means that we will need very, very strong Pokemon to defeat his Shadow Pokemon line-up.

If you thought that the Team Go Rocket Leaders were hard to defeat, well, we hate to be the bearers of bad news, but Giovanni is really difficult to defeat. His Pokemon and their strengths are out of this world. But if you are determined to beat him, there is always a better Pokemon line-up than his, and we are pleased to help you by posting a full list of Giovanni’s line-up, the best counter Pokemon for his Shadow Pokemon, and which Pokemon moveset will help you defeat him.

Giovanni uses Shadow Persian, Shadow Rhyperior, Shadow Steelix, Shadow Honchkrow, and Shadow Mewtwo.
