Pokemon Go Guide: Tips to counter and beat Sierra in May 2022

Sierra’s squad of Pokemon has arrived in the game!

Another month has arrived and with that, a new challenge has arrived for Pokemon Go players. In May, players will have a lot to do because Team Go Rocket has come to create a menace. The inclusion of Team Go Rocket foes has been popular with fans since their arrival, as they frequently occur near PokeStops and hot air balloons. Basic grunts shouldn’t be too difficult for players, the actual incentive for defeating these foes is obtaining a Rocket Radar, allowing them to face off against stronger opponents like Cliff, Arlo, and Sierra. Our Pokemon Go guide will tell you how to beat Sierra and use counters on him in May 2022 to easily secure a win.

Sierra’s squad could be a great problem for Pokemon Go players in May, as she has a lot of damage types that are opposites of each other. There’s Fire and Water, Psychic and Dark, and a few others have thrown in for good measure. Here’s what players can expect, and which Pokemon they should bring to win.

How to counter and defeat Sierra in Pokemon Go

Sierra’s first Pokemon

Sierra will begin her battles in May 2022 with Drowzee, a pure psychic type Pokemon, most likely to be the easiest matchup of the three. As a result, players should prepare Bug, Dark, and Ghost-type assaults to exploit Drowzee’s vulnerabilities. Since Drowzee is likely to be her easiest, players should concentrate on removing her shields as fast as possible so she can’t use them later.

Here are the Pokemon Go Sierra counters for this fight in May 2022:

  • Darkrai with Snarl fast attack and Shadow Ball for the Charged Attack.
  • Hoopa with Astonish fast attack and Shadow Ball for the Charged Attack.
  • Weavile with Snarl fast attack and Foul Play for the Charged Attack.
  • Chandelure with Hex fast attack and Shadow Ball for the Charged Attack.
  • Gengar with Shadow Claw fast attack and Shadow Ball for the Charged Attack.
  • Absol with Snarl fast attack and Payback for the Charged Attack.

Sierra’s second Pokemon

For her second duel, Sierra will have three options, Blaziken, Sharpedo, or Lapras. Sharpedo is vulnerable to Bug, Electric, Fairy, Fighting, and Grass-type techniques as a Dark and Water-type Pokemon. Due to its extensive list of flaws and poor health, this is also the simplest of the three.

Sierra also has her extraordinarily Tanky Ice/ Water Type Pokemon, Lapras. While Lapras is particularly weak to Electric, Grass, Fighting, and Rock-types, players should be aware that Grass and Rock-types can be countered by Lapras’ Ice attacks. Players should choose stronger Pokemon for this battle as Lapras may quickly kill Pokemon with low health.

Sierra’s third Pokemon

Players will face another mystery battle for the third and final round after they have defeated two Pokemon. Sierra, like her other Leaders, has three possible Pokemon to choose from, and players won’t know which one it is until they reach this point. Players could see Houndoom, Shiftry, or Nidoqueen in May 2022. Here’s how to handle them all. The Dark/Fire Type Pokemon, Rhyperior is particularly weak in Fighting, Ground, Rock, and Water-type moves.

  • Conkeldurr with Counter fast attack and Dynamic Punch or SmackDown for the Charged Attack.

  • Groudon with Mud Shot fast attack and Earthquake for the Charged Attack.

Fairy, Fighting, Ice, Poison, Flying, and Fire-type moves work particularly well against the Grass/Dark Type Pokemon, Shiftry. Due to its low health compared to the other two, this Pokemon is also the most popular pick among many.
