Arlo makes regular appearances in Pokémon Go as one of the three Team Rocket leaders. You can encounter Arlo if you have Rocket Radar equipped, and there’s a chance you can save the shadow Pokémon he’s captured. His roster changes every few months, and starting in March 2023, he has a new roster and featured shadow Pokémon. Here’s what you need to know about all of Arlo’s Pokémon weaknesses and the best Pokémon counters to use in Pokémon Go for March 2023.

How to beat Arlo

If you’re hunting the Team Rocket leaders, make sure you have a Rocket Radar in your inventory, which you can obtain after defeating six Team Rocket grunts and grabbing their Mysterious Components. Once you have the Rocket Radar equipped, visit any captured Team Rocket PokéStop or a Rocket Balloon for a chance to find Arlo. You might also encounter Cliff or Sierra when looking for Team Rocket leaders.

All of Arlo’s Pokémon in Pokémon Go

First Pokémon

The first Pokémon Arlo will use against you will be Teddiursa, a Normal-type Pokémon. It will be weak against Fighting-type Pokémon, which makes it a relatively easy encounter for you to counter against. You shouldn’t expect too much trouble from this battle, but there are two more Pokémon that Arlo is going to use against you.

Second Pokémon

The second Pokémon Arlo can use against you can be Golurk, and two other choices. We’re still trying to learn those choices right now, but Golurk is a confirmed opponent.

Third Pokémon

The final Pokémon Arlo will use against you is Scizor, one of three other potential choices. We’re still trying to confirm the two Pokémon Arlo might use against you in this encounter.

After defeating Arlo, you’ll have a chance to catch a shadow Teddiursa at the end of the battle. There is a chance this could appear as a shiny version.
