Pokemon GO: How to Beat Team GO Rocket Leader Sierra (July 2020)

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 Fighting-types, but you need some good luck for that to happen. Here are all of Sierra’s possible Pokemon:

  • Pokemon 1
    • Lapras (Water/Ice)
  • Pokemon 2
    • Exeggutor (Grass/Psychic)
    • Lapras (Water/Ice)
    • Sharpedo (Water/Dark)
  • Pokemon 3
    • Alakazam (Pyschic)
    • Houndoom (Dark/Fire)
    • Shiftry (Grass/Dark)

Battle 1

Lapras
This is a huge upgrade from Sierra’s last starter (Beldum). You may want to send out a Grass-type mon against Lapras. Some may take a lot of damage from Ice moves, but they’ll also deal heavy damage to Lapras. Fighting-types like Conkeldurr and Machamp are also solid options for this matchup.

Best Picks: Ludicolo, Leafeon, Abomasnow, Venusaur, Conkeldurr

Battle 2

Exeggutor
You can pit in a Dark-type Pokemon if Sierra sends out her Exeggutor next. A Fire or Bug mon could also take on Exeggutor, but you should be fine with Hydreigon, Heatran, or Tyranitar. Just make sure you always shield if you have Tyranitar in so it doesn’t get hit by Grass-type moves.

Best Picks: Hydreigon, Heatran, Tyranitar, Genesect, Escavalier

Sharpedo
Sharpedo is a glass cannon that can quickly KO you if you’re not ready for it. Togekiss or Gardevior are solid options to hit Sharpedo’s Fairy weakness. Leafeon and Venusaur are also solid options that can take down this shark Pokemon quickly.

Best Picks: Togekiss, Leafeon, Venusaur, Conkeldurr, Ludicolo

Lapras
There’s not much to say here. If you’re very lucky, then you’ll run into Lapras two times in a row and you’ll already be prepared for it.

Best Picks: Ludicolo, Leafeon, Abomasnow, Venusaur, Conkeldurr

Battle 3

Houndoom
If you reach Sierra’s third Pokemon and you get a little bit of luck, then you can stick with Machamp or Conkeldurr to take on Houndoom. Water-, Ground-, and Rock-types are going to be the safest options to finish off this Fire/Dark Pokemon.

Best Picks: Landorus, Palkia, Kyogre, Swampert, Rhyperior

Alakazam
Alakazam is a completely different story since it’s super effective against Fighting-type Pokemon. If you’re extremely lucky, then you won’t need to switch out from the Dark-type mon you used against Exeggutor. Alakazam is fairly frail, so don’t even worry about using any other types.

Best Picks: Tyranitar, Weavile, Darkrai, Honchkrow, Hydreigon

Shiftry
Shiftry is so weak to so many different types, it’s not even funny. Grass/Dark is not a forgiving typing and you can take advantage of that with Fairy-, Bug-, Fighting-, Fire-, Flying-, Ice-, or Poison-type Pokemon. Keep Togekiss in if you used it against Sharpedo or switch to a Bug-type for massive damage.

Best Picks: Genesect, Scizor, Scyther, Pinsir, Scolipede

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:

  1. Abomasnow (Razor Leaf|Energy Ball)
  2. Togekiss (Charm|Dazzling Gleam)
  3. Genesect (Fury Cutter|X-Scissor)

Secondary team:

  1. Ludicolo (Razor Leaf|Energy Ball)
  2. Tyranitar (Bite|Crunch)
  3. Conkeldurr (Counter|Focus Blast)

Any other solid Pokemon of the same types should help you to victory in your battle against Sierra. That’s all you need to know about how to beat Team GO Rocket Leader Sierra in Pokemon Go. Now it’s time to take on Arlo and Cliff so you can face Giovanni.
