arlo lineup and counters

Pokemon GO comes with another chance for all trainers who want to defeat the Team GO Rocket bosses. 

Bosses, Arlo, Sierra, Giovanni, and Cliff, are back and ready to cause some trouble around the map. They made a few updates to their roster, so we need to alter the counter rosters they had last time. 

Arlo is back in Pokemon GO with many familiar Pokemon. There is also some new stuff. Here is what you need to know.

Arlo Updates

You should be able to reutilize most of the boss’ counters from the last time, but you also need to be ready for a big challenge. 

Arlo introduces Growlithe in its first slot. Such a thing requires players to select and power up a new Pokemon. Things should be pretty easy after that.
