The best Pokemon GO Sierra counters are required to take down this tough leader's team. She's a difficult foe, but she can be bested with the right counters on your Pokemon GO team. Defeating Sierra is no mean feat, but these are the best Pokemon GO Sierra counters for May 2022.

If you still need to take down the other Team GO Rocket leaders, check out our guides for those here:

Pokemon GO Sierra Lineup: May 2022

Much like her pals Arlo and Cliff, Sierra has one Pokemon she’ll use every time — that’s her Drowzee who she’ll deploy first. Her second and third Pokemon could each be one of three, though.

Her second Pokemon could be any of the following:

  • Lapras
  • Blaziken
  • Sharpedo

And her third could be any of these Pokemon:

  • Shiftry
  • Houndoom
  • Nidoqueen

Here's how to take care of them!

Pokemon GO Sierra Counters: Drowzee

Here’s the best way to counter Sierra’s Drowzee, which is a Psychic-type:

  • Tyranitar (Bite | Crunch)
  • Gengar (Shadow Claw | Shadow Ball)
  • Weavile (Snarl | Foul Play)
  • Darkrai (Snarl | Dark Pulse)
  • Chandelure (Hex | Shadow Ball)

Drowzee isn't very strong, so basically any Dark- or Ghost-type will do the job. It's also weak to Bug, but there aren't many strong Bug-types in the game. Otherwise, just use generally strong attackers like Metagross, Dragonite, and others. 

This is where it gets a little more complicated, so strap in. This second Pokemon could be any of those listed above, and these are the counters you’ll need:

Pokemon GO Sierra Counters: Lapras

  • Lucario (Counter | Aura Sphere)

Pokemon GO Sierra Counters: Blaziken
