Finding the best Pokemon GO Arlo counters isn't easy, especially when they change so frequently. The GO Rocket Leader still has the same Pokemon for May in Pokemon GO that he did in April. This means that, if you defeated the red-headed Team GO Rocket leader last month, your existing party of Pokemon might perform just as well this time. Either way — if you plan to take Arlo down, you're going to need to know exactly what Arlo's weaknesses are. These are the best Pokemon GO Arlo counters in May 2022.

If you're yet to take down the other Team GO Rocket leaders, take a look at these guides:

Pokemon GO Arlo Lineup: May 2022

Arlo will always open with his Exeggcute, but has three possible Pokemon to use for both his second and third Pokemon. The Pokemon that could show up as his second choice are:

  • Dragonite
  • Alolan Exeggutor
  • Salamence

And his possible third Pokemon are:

  • Gardevoir
  • Steelix
  • Scizor

Here are the best Pokemon GO Arlo counters:

Arlo’s first beastie is an easier one to be ready for as it’ll be the same every time. To get past the Exeggcute, you’re best off using:

  • Mamoswine (Powder Snow | Avalanche)
  • Scizor (Fury Cutter | X-Scissor)
  • Reshiram (Fire Fang | Overheat)
  • Unovan Darmanitan (Fire Fang | Overheat)
  • Blaziken (Counter | Blast Burn)

There are of course three choices for Arlo’s second and third Pokemon, making him tougher to predict. Here are the best counters to his choices for his second Pokemon:

Pokemon GO Arlo Counters: Dragonite

Dragonite weaknesses: Dragon | Fairy | Ice (x2) | Rock

  • Galarian Darmanitan (Ice Fang | Avalanche)
  • Mamoswine (Powder Snow | Avalanche)
  • Glaceon (Ice Shard | Avalanche)
  • Mewtwo (Psycho Cut | Ice Beam)
  • Weavile (Ice Shard | Avalanche)

Pokemon GO Arlo Counters: Alolan Exeggutor

  • Galarian Darmanitan (Ice Fang | Avalanche)
  • Glaceon (Frost Breath | Avalanche)
  • Weavile (Ice Shard/Snarl | Avalanche)
  • Mamoswine (Powder Snow | Avalanche)
  • Mega Abomasnow (Powder Snow | Ice-type Weather Ball)

Pokemon GO Arlo Counters: Salamence

  • Mamoswine (Powder Snow | Avalanche)
  • Glaceon (Ice Shard | Avalanche)
  • Mewtwo (Psycho Cut | Ice Beam)
  • Weavile (Ice Shard | Avalanche)

Arlo’s last Pokemon could prove the trickiest to take care of, but they’re not without their counters, and they’re nothing you can’t manage with some forward thinking.

  • Therian Landorus (Mud Shot | Earthquake)

  • Roserade (Poison Jab | Sludge Bomb)
  • Gengar (Shadow Claw | Shadow Ball)
  • Dialga (Metal Claw | Iron Head)

Those are all of the best Pokemon GO Arlo counters that you’re best off choosing if you want to topple the Team Rocket leader. It might be laborious training these Pokemon ready for them to take him on, but the rewards you’ll reap at the end will make it all worth it.
