Arlo returns to Pokémon Go for November 2021 as a regular Team Rocket Leader you can choose to fight against while exploring the game. Giovanni is no longer taking a break from the shadows and has returned for the end of the Season of Mischief with shadow Lugia. Here’s what you need to know about all of Arlo’s weaknesses and the best Pokémon counters for November 2021.

If you’re hunting the 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.

First Pokémon

The first Pokémon will be Gligar, a Ground and Flying-type Pokémon. It’s primarily weak against Ice and Water-type moves, but it is resistant against Bug, Electric, Fighting, Ground, and Poison-type attacks. The best Pokémon you’ll want to use will have Ice-type moves, such as Mamoswine, Glaceon, or Galarian Darmanitan.

Second Pokémon

These are the potential Pokémon Arlo can call out as his second Pokémon. Arlo will have three to pick from.

  • Ursaring (Normal-type)
  • Crobat (Flying and Poison-type)
  • Manectric (Electric-type)

Given these choices by Arlo, you’ll want to use Pokémon that can use Ice, Psychic, or Rock-type moves. If you need a Pokémon to do a lot of damage, we recommend usng Mamoswine, given it’s one of the best Ice-type Pokémon in the game, or Articuno, Alolan Ninetales, Regice, Lapras, or Weavile.

Third Pokémon

This is the final Pokémon Arlo could use against you in the battle.

  • Scizor (Bug and Steel-type)
  • Magnezone (Electric and Steel-type)
  • Vileplume (Grass and Poison-type)

These three are primarily going to be weak to Fire and Ground-type. Of these two choices, we highly recommend a Fire-type Pokémon. All three of them are going to be weak to these attacks, making them extremely vulnerable to these attacks. We recommend you use Heatran, Darmanitan, Entei, Moltres, Magmortar, or Typhlosion.

You have plenty of choices to use against Arlo. You primarily want to focus on Fire and Ice-type attacks to use against his Pokémon to take them down. After defeating Arlor, you’ll be able to catch Gligar and it can be a shiny version.
