Tinkering around how to beat the team rocket leaders? The below-given guide has a list of Pokemon Go Cliff, Sierra, and Arlo counters.

Pokemon Go Cliff counters

Pinsir counters

Pinsir, a Bug-type Pokemon, weak to Fire-, Flying-, and Rock-type moves, however, it can still deal some serious damage with its Fighting-type moves, so the following counters are the best against it.

Tyranitar counters

Tyranitar, one of the strongest Pokemon in Pokemon Go PvP. It uses Dark- and Steel-type quick moves, with Fire-, Rock-, and Dark-type charge moves. Surprisingly, it is weak against Fighting-type moves, which makes Pokemon like Lucario and Machamp excellent choices.

Articuno counters

Articuno is in the possession of Cliff, so it won’t be easy. It’s double weak to Rock-type moves though, along with having a standard weakness to Electric-, Fire-, and Steel- types. Avoid using use Ground-type Pokemon as it has a double resistance, while Grass- and Bug- types also not a good choice.

Mawile counters

Mawile has a lot of resistance. You would want to use Fire- or Ground-type moves with Mawile as the Steel-/Fairy-type is resistant to most other types.

Scizor counters

Scizor is a Bug-/Steel-type, so Pokemon veterans will know there’s only one type for the job; Fire. Fire-type moves deal double damage, so you just want to throw out the strongest Fire-type Pokemon you have, as long as both the fast and charged move are Fire-type.

Moltres counters

Then there’s Moltres, the Fire-/Flying-type legendary bird from the first generation. While Moltres is weak to Electric- and Water-type Pokemon, you’ll want to use Rock-type moves because they deal double damage.
