How to Beat Sierra (September 2022)

To beat Sierra in September 2022, Pokémon GO Trainers must have a general understanding of the potential lineup the Team Rocket Leader might use.

Now that Pokémon GO Trainers have entered the month of September 2022, it is important to know the lineup of Pokémon Sierra might dispatch during an encounter with the Team Rocket Leader. To confront this foe, players must collect six Mysterious Components, after which they will be able to craft the Rocket Radar. This device pinpoints the AR location of a random Team Rocket GO Leader in Pokémon GO. Mysterious Components are gathered from defeating Team Rocket Grunts, who will frequently appear at PokéStops or in hot air balloons.


Sierra can be a challenging opponent to take down due to the elemental diversity in her team comp in Pokémon GO. In one round, she might dispatch a Water-type pocket monster, after which she will suddenly send out a Dark-type Pokémon to take its place. Furthermore, the randomness of the combatants she picks is also a factor that might result in one’s failure to defeat her.
