What’s on the cards for Pokemon Go Arlo counters for September 2022?

In this guide, we’re putting our predictive skills to the test to bring you an educated guess about what Pokemon counters will help you fight off the Team Rocket leader next month.

A sprinkling of speculative dust is par for the course here, but if anything, Niantic loves consistency when it comes to Arlo’s monthly roster of Shadow Pokemon.

We’ve also got a decent track record, all but nailing this month’s Giovanni counters.

Pokemon Go Arlo Counters September 2022 Predictions

Arlos line-up for September 2022 is likely to be: 

  • Phase 1: Charmander
  • Phase 2: Mawile/Salamence/Charizard
  • Phase 3: Steelix/Scizor/Gardevoir

Phase 1 – Charmander

As soon as the bell rings, Arlo always chucks out Charamader to kick off proceedings. Charmander is a Fire-type Pokemon, weak to Rock, Ground, and Water-type moves.

To quickly dispatch the little guy, focus on Pokemon like Golem, Rhyperior, Rampardos, Regirock, Tyranita, and Omastar. Strong attacks include Smack Down, Rock Slide, and Rock Throw.

Arlo Counters September 2022 – Phase 2 – Mawile/Salamence/Charizard

During phase 2, Arlo pulls out either Mawile, Salamence, or Charizard. We expect this to continue in September 2022, so the same Arlo counters apply.


A Fairy and Steel-type Pokemon, Mawile totters when hit by Fire and Ground-type attacks. 

Good Arlo counters for September 2022 include Entei, Houndoom, Moltres, Garchomp, and Chandelure. Attacks like Fire Spin, Mud Shot, Overheat, and Fire Fang should do the job here.


Salamence slots in as a Flying and Dragon-type Pokemon and loses much of his fighting powers against Ice-type attacks. 

We suggest drafting in the likes of Glaceon, Weavile, Mamoswine, Palkia, and Galarian Darmanitan as counters to Salamence. Focus on using attacks like Ice Fang, Dragon Breath, Powder Snow, and Avalanche.


Finally, we have Charizard, the last of Arlo’s phase 2 options, and a Flying and Fire-type Pokemon.

Hammer them with Rock-type attacks to take the sting out of their attacks. We recommend Pokemon like Golem, Rampardos, Rhyperior, Tyranitar, and Omastar. Strong moves include Smack Down, Rock Throw, and Rockslide.

Arlo Counters September 2022 – Phase 3 – Steelix/Scizor/Gardevoir

Over to phase 3, and Arlo should pull out either Steelix, Scizor, or Gardevoir.


First up is Steelix, a Steel and Ground-type Pokemon. Weaknesses include Water, Fire, Ground, and Fighting-type moves.

Some of the best Steelix counters include Swampert, Conkeldurr, Entei, Heatran, and Darmanitan. Moves like Counter, Fire Fang, Water Gun, Overheat, and Hydro Cannon ten to do well here.


Scizor is a Steel and Bug variety Pokemon that stumbles when up against Fire-type attacks. 

Strong counters for September should include Charizard, Entei, Blaziken, Heatran, and Reshiram. Concentrate on moves like Fire Spin, Blast Burn, and Overheat for the best results.


Last but not least, we have a Gardevoir, a Psychic and Fairy-type fighter that’s particularly weak to Steel, Ghost, and Poison-type moves.

We recommend calling upon Pokemon counters like Chandelure, Dialga, Hoopa, Metagross, and Gengar to make the fight easier. Moves like Meteor Mash, Lick, Astonish, Poison Jab, and Sludge Bomb should make easy work of Gardevoir.

That’s a wrap on our predictions for Pokemon Go Arlo counters for September 2022. We’ll revisit this article on September 1st to provide an update and see if we were off the mark or not.

We also have a dedicated Giovanni counters for September 2022 predictions page, too.
