Guide to Counter Sierra

Here are Sierra’s best counters in Pokemon Go.

Shadow Nidoran (female)

To counter the opening move of Rocket villain, use psychic and ground attacks as much as you can.

Recommended counters:

  • Garchomp (Mud Shot, Sand Tomb, Earth Power)
  • Rhyperior (Mud Slap, Surf, Rock Wrecker)
  • Charizard (Fire Spin, Blast Burn, Dragon Claw)

Shadow Beedrill

Beedrill is an easier target as compared to other Pokemon of Sierra, so you can go with fire, psychic, flying, and rock attacks.

Recommended counters:

  • Charizard (Fire Spin, Blast Burn, Dragon Claw)
  • Rhyperior (Mud Slap, Surf, Rock Wrecker)
  • Lugia (Dragon Tail, Sky Attack, Hydro Pump)

Shadow Vileplume

Lugia is recommended for this little flower as it has got some very sharp leaves that you should worry about. Vileplume is proven weak against fire, psychic, ice, and flying attacks in battle.  

Recommended counters:

  • Charizard (Fire Spin, Blast Burn, Dragon Claw)
  • Mewtwo (Psycho Cut, Psystrike, Ice Beam)
  • Lugia (Dragon Tail, Sky Attack, Hydro Pump)

Shadow Slowbro

Use bug, electric, plant, dark, and ghost-type attacks if you want to bring the health of Slowbro to the minimum. It is a tough Pokemon so go with Dialga, Dragonite, and Yveltal as they have high stamina meaning that they will stay longer in the battle.  

Recommended counters:

  • Dialga (Dragon Breath, Iron Head, Draco Meteor)
  • Dragonite (Dragon Breath, Hurricane, Dragon Claw)
  • Yveltal (Snarl, Dark Pulse, Focus Blast)

Shadow Houndoom

Although Houndoom is the favorite pet of Sierra, even unprofessional players can effortlessly counter it with some ground, water-type, fighting, and rock attacks.

Recommended counters:

  • Machamp (Counter, Cross Chop, Rock Slide)
  • Kyogre (Waterfall, Surf)
  • Rhyperior (Smack Down, Rock Wrecker, Surf)

Shadow Marowak

Water, grass, and ice-type attacks are the biggest weaknesses of Marowak, and it can deal little to no damage to Pokemon with these attacks.

 Recommended counters:

  • Kyogre (Waterfall, Surf)
  • Gyarados (Dragon Breath, Aqua Tail, Crunch)
  • Lugia (Dragon Tail, Sky Attack, Hydro Pump)

Shadow Nidoqueen

Nidoqueen has the same weaknesses as those of the female version of Nidoran Pokemon, so you can go with similar counters and only change Charizard with Mewtwo.

Recommended counters:

  • Garchomp (Mud Shot, Sand Tomb, Earth Power)
  • Kyogre (Waterfall, Surf)
  • Mewtwo (Psycho Cut, Psystrike, Ice Beam)

Shadow Nidoran and Beedril are some of the best counters for Sierra in Pokemon go but others on our list are capable of doing the job as well.
