Team Rocket, the Pokemon series' iconic villains, are a big part of Pokemon Go too. You need to battle their leaders to get rewards that help you improve your squad, with beating Sierra being a key test.
Sierra is one of the leaders you'll have to face and she can be quite tough. To help, we've got a low down on what you'll need to do to counter her and come away with the rewards.
Sierra's Pokemon Lineup
Sierra has a selection of Pokemon she tends to use, but she always starts fights with Carvanha. To beat Sierra, you'll want to use Pokemon that are good against it.
After you knock Carvanha out, you'll then have to face one of Hippowdon, Porygon-Z or Mismagius, and then one of Flygon, Houndoom or Walrein in the final fight.
Since each of the Pokemon are quite different, the counters change depending on who you're fighting, so you need to put together a squad that will make you competitive against all of them.
Sierra Best Counters
Carvanha is weak against Fairy, Fighting, Electric, and Grass types, so you have some option of what Pokemon to use.
- Machamp with Fighting moveset
- Togekiss with Charm/Ancient Power
- Hydreigon with Dragon Breath/Dark Pulse
- Electivire/Raikou for Electric type
Sierra's second Pokemon is weak to Grass, Water, and Ice types. You could use:
Porygon-Z is a bit of a strange one, but you'll want to go with Fighting types.
Mismagius Best Counters
As always, Normal and Dark type moves are great counters for Ghost types.

Ice, Fairy, and Dragon types are where you want to go for Flygon, which can be powerful in its own right.
Houndoom Best Counters
Since Houndoom is a Dark/Fire type, you're looking to use Fighting, Rock, Ground, and of course, Water types as good counters.
Finally, Walrein is weak to Fighting, Grass, Electric, and Rock types, since it's pure water type. You can use:
How to Beat Sierra
Looking over the best counters for Sierra's Pokemon, there are a few Pokemon that will be good against a few of your opponents. The likes of Machamp, Lucario, Electivire, Tyranitar, and Kyogre will be good against a few foes.
Therefore, focus on using Pokemon that'll be useful against multiple, since you don't necessarily know who Sierra will use. Hopefully that help you come out on top.
