Sierra and the other Team Rocket leaders in Pokémon Go are back to cause even more trouble for June 2021. Right now, they seem to have the same roster they were using at the end of May's Luminous Legend Y event. However, Giovanni is taking a break from Pokémon Go. We don't know when he will be back. But you can still find Sierra and the other Team Rocket leaders around the world, ready for battle.



If you're looking for Sierra or the other two Team Rocket leaders, you'll need a Rocket Radar, which you can receive after defeating six Team Rocket recruits. These recruits drop the mystery components which automatically combine in the radar. You will be able to narrow down the location of the Team Rocket leader's hideout and fight him.

Here are all of Sierra's Pokémon, their weaknesses, and the best Pokémon to use against her.

First Pokémon

The first Pokémon Sierra is using is Sneasel, a Dark and Ice-type Pokémon. It will be weak against Bug-type, Fairy, Fighting, Fire, Rock, and Steel-type attacks, but is resistant to Dark, Ghost, Ice, and Psychic-type moves. You must mainly focus on using Fairy, Fighting, Fire or Steel type attacks to defeat him. We recommend using Talonflame, Perrserker, Galarian Stunfisk, Machamp or Clefable to beat him.

This Pokémon has a chance to be a brilliant version when you beat Sierra.


Second Pokémon

This is the second Pokémon Sierra could use against you for her second choice Pokémon.


  • Gliscor (Ground and Flying Type)
  • Granbull (Fairy type)
  • Ampharos (electric type)

Given what we know about Sierra's roster, this group is mostly weak to Ice and Water-type attacks. Ice would be your best option to take out Gliscor and not be left super effective against Ampharos if Sierra uses that Pokémon. You can always go with Mamoswine, giving this Pokémon a Ground-type option.

Third Pokémon

These are the final Pokémon choices Sierra could use against you as a third choice.

  • Houndoom (Dark and Fire type)
  • Kingdra (Dragon and Water type)
  • Drapion (Darkness and Poison type)

Given its choices, these Pokémon will be weak to Dragon, Fairy, Fighting, Ground, or Rock-type moves. You have to focus mainly on using Dragon, Fairy, Fighting, Ground or Rock type Pokémon. We highly recommend that you consider using Galarian Stunfisk, Escavalier, Sirfetch'd, Machamp, Heracross, Articuno, and others that fit these choices.



After defeating Sierra, you will have a chance to capture her Sneasel shadow and evolve her into a Weavile. You have a chance to be brilliant.
