Cliff’s roster will change in Pokémon Go, giving you a chance to capture new shadow Pokémon and add them to your roster. These shadow Pokémon are going to be tough, and if you want to take down Giovanni, you need to work your way through defeating Cliff and the other Team Rocket leaders. Here’s what you need to know about all of Cliff’s Pokémon weaknesses and the best Pokémon to counter him in Pokémon Go for March 2023.

How to beat Cliff

When looking for Cliff, you’ll need a Rocket Radar to track him down. You can receive a Rocket Radar by defeating six Team Rocket grunts and obtaining their Mysterious Components to find the leaders’ hideouts. They will appear at captured PokéStops or a Team Rocket Balloon. There is a chance you might find Arlo or Sierra at a PokéStop instead.

All of Cliff’s Pokémon in Pokémon Go

First Pokémon

The first Pokémon Cliff uses in battle will be Larvitar, a Rock and Ground-type Pokémon. Larvitar is weak against Fighting, Grass, Ground, Ice, Steel, or Water-type moves. We recommend using Fighting, Grass, Ground, or Steel-types to effectively take down Larvitar, and prepare for the other Pokémon Cliff will use against you. You should not have too much difficulty with this encounter.

Second Pokémon

The second Pokémon Cliff can use against you will be Skarmory and this is only one of three potential choices. We’re still trying to confirm the other two options that Cliff might use against you.

Third Pokémon

The final Pokémon Cliff will use against you will be a Tyranitar, but this is only one of three choices he might have in his roster. We’ll add the other two once we have confirmed what Pokémon they are and their weaknesses.

After defeating Cliff, you have a chance to capture a shadow Larvitar. There is a chance it could be a shiny version of Larvitar.
