Arlo is one of the three team rocket leaders you can go up against once you’ve got enough Mysterious Components to make a Rocket Radar. You need to use your Rocket Radars when going up against this team leader, as a cost. But as a reward for beating the Team Leader you get stardust, items and you’ll also get special eggs that can hatch exclusive Pokemon.

As for which Team Leader you’ll go up against, they’re pretty much random. If you don’t like one and would rather go up against another, you can either wait or you can go to a different PokeStop. Each leader has a different team, but their team is always the same. So as long as you know which Leader you’re against, you can know what type match-up you need.

Arlo’s Team Counters in Pokemon GO

Arlo will only have a team of these Pokemon. As for which you’ll encounter during your battle, that can vary from encounter to encounter. But if you’re knocked out from the first battle, don’t worry, if you re-try it’ll remain the same team. So you can prepare accordingly.

Gligar Counters

Gligar will be Arlo’s first Pokemon so the best way to make sure you get past the first hurdle with a full and in-tact team is by using and Ice or Water type.

Mawile, Lapras or Cradily Counters

The second Pokemon you’ll need to worry about is one of these. But thankfully, we’ll just quickly show you each of their weaknesses and what to use when you go up against them:

Mawile: Ground and Fire.

Lapras: Electric, Fighting, Grass and Rock.

Cradily: Rock and Grass.

Scizor, Snorlax or Gardevoir Counters

Same thing again, for Arlo’s third Pokemon you’ll be going up against one of these three so make sure you’ve got the right type.

Scizor: Fire.

Snorlax: Fighting or Dark.

Gardevoir: Ghost, Poison and Steel.
