This Team Go Rocket Leader won’t pull any punches in your battle with her. If you’ve already faced her a bunch of times and you still have not been victorious, then you’re in luck. Here’s how to beat Sierra in Pokemon Go.
How to Beat Team Go Rocket Leader Sierra in Pokemon Go
Sierra is one of the most tricky trainers you’ll face in the game. If you get a favorable team to battle, then you can just blast through with a Machamp, but you need some good luck for that to happen. Here are all of Sierra’s possible Pokemon:
- Pokemon 1
- Sneasel (Dark/Ice)
- Pokemon 2
- Hypno (Psychic)
- Lapras (Water/Ice)
- Sableye (Dark/Ghost)
- Pokemon 3
- Alakazam (Pyschic)
- Houndoom (Dark/Fire)
- Gardevior (Psychic/Fairy)
Sneasel will get beaten handily by Fighting-types like Machamp or Hariyama. Avoid using Breloom since Sneasel would be able to take advantage of the boxing kangaroo’s weakness to Ice.
Metagross is another solid option, but not necessary. Its Steel-type moves will be super effective and this Pokemon will have other type advantages later on.
You can stick with your Fighting-type Pokemon if you get lucky and Sierra sends out her Lapras next. An Electric mon could also take on Lapras, but with Machamp or Hariyama already out there’s no reason to switch.
Sableye isn’t impressive statistically in any way, but it’s only weak to Fairy-type moves. Togekiss, Gardevior, or Granbull become top-tier picks if you have to face this mediocre Pokemon.
You have more options if you get this next mon since Hypno is weak to Dark-, Bug-, and Ghost-types. Darkrai, Tyranitar, Gengar, Origin Giratina, and Chandelure are all solid options for this fight.
If you reach Sierra’s third Pokemon and your luck continues, then you can stick with Machamp or Hariyama to take on Houndoom. Water-, Ground-, and Rock-types are also good options, but you’re already going to have that fighter in your party to take out Sneasel.
If you went with a Fairy to take on Sableye, then you can just keep it in the battle since it’ll have a type advantage against Houndoom.
Alakazam and Gardevoir are a completely different story since they both are super effective against Fighting-type Pokemon. This is another situation where a Ghost mon would be a great option.
Since the Fairy-type was added to Gardevoir, that removed its Dark vulnerability. That means that a Ghost-type (or Shadow Ball Mewtwo) would be the best option for Alakazam or Gardevoir.
Alternatively, you could also throw a Metagross out there since Steel is super effective against Gardevoir and it’ll resist Alakazam’s Psychic attacks. It’s a good flex pick if you’re lacking good Ghost attackers.
Best Pokemon Team to Beat Sierra
The Psychic-, Dark-, and Fairy-types in here certainly mix up your team choices. It also means that if you’re lacking a strong Pokemon of a certain type, then there are at least some other options for your road to victory.
My ideal team for beating Sierra is:
- Machamp (Counter|Dynamic Punch)
- Togekiss (Charm|Dazzling Gleam)
- Origin Form Giratina (Shadow Claw|Shadow Ball)
Any other solid Pokemon of the same types should help you to victory in your battle against Sierra. I still also like Meteor Mash Metagross in this fight if you don’t have one of the mons listed above.
