The best Pokemon GO Sierra counters are arguably the hardest of the three Team GO Rocket leaders (excluding the big bad final boss) to utilise thanks to Sierra's lineup, but if you managed to take her down last month then worry not, because her roster is the same for September in Pokemon GO. On the other hand, if you haven't beaten Sierra for a while, you'll need to use this guide to find the best Pokemon counters. Defeating Sierra is no mean feat, but these are the best Pokemon GO Sierra counters for September 2021.

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

Pokemon GO Sierra Lineup

Much like her two pals, Sierra has one Pokemon she’ll use every time - that’s her Sneasel who she’ll deploy first. Her second and third Pokemon could be any one of six Pokemon, however. Her second Pokemon could be any of the following:

  • Gliscor
  • Granbull
  • Ampharos

And her third could be either:

  • Kingdra
  • Houndoom
  • Drapion

Here’s how to take care of them…

Here’s the best way to counter Sierra’s Sneasel -

  • Lucario, with Counter and Power-Up Punch
  • Conkeldurr, with Counter and Dynamic Punch
  • Machamp, with Counter and Dynamic Punch
  • Blaziken, with Counter and Focus Blast
  • Hariyama, with Counter and Superpower

So basically, anything with Counter will do the trick.
