With a new month comes a makeover for the agents of chaos in Pokemon GO - Team Rocket. Every single charismatic leader has had a change to their squad for the current month, which means that trainers are going to want to adapt their strategies if they want certain victory. Luckily for you, your search can start here. We've got the breakdown of the Pokemon GO Team Rocket February lineups so you can figure out who you're going to be batting against.
Pokemon GO Team Rocket February Lineups - Cliff
When it comes to the change in lineups for the Team Rocket leaders, you'll be pleased to know that some of your old strats are still going to work. The main changes are to the first Pokemon that the leaders open with. In Cliff's case, he's now going to open with Pinsir. This particular Bug Type Pokemon is strong against Dark Types, so you'll want to keep that in mind when you're about to duel.
Outside of that, Cliff's second pick can be one of the following options: Marowak, Omastar, and Electivire. His third pick can then be Tyranitar, Swampert or Torterra. Cliff clearly doesn't just gun for one particular type so we would recommend bringing a spread to deal with him. You could take a Rock Type in with you, or a Ground Type which can do double duty against more than one pick.
Pokemon GO Team Rocket February Lineups - Arlo
Arlo, unlike Cliff, definitely leans towards one particular Type of Pokemon. Here, we're talking Steel, which means that a strategy against him will be pretty one-sided. You're just going to want to bring Fire to what is mostly, uh, a Fire fight. His new first pick is going to be a Mawile, which is a hybrid Fairy and Steel type. It's particularly weak to Ground and Fire, so continue ensuring that you scorch the hell out of this strange-looking metal plant.
Outside of that, Arlo's second pick can be one of the following options: Steelix, Blastoise, or Charizard. His third pick can then be Dragonite, Salamence, or Scizor. As you can see, there's a chance that he pulls out a Fire-resistant pick fairly early on, so don't just heap your team full of Fire Types. Why not take a Rock Type with you for better coverage?
Pokemon GO Team Rocket February Lineups - Sierra
We've briefly covered off Sierra's particular roster change when talking about how to deal with her favorite son, Lapras, and we've just relinked that guide here for your convenience. However, the change you're gonna be most concerned with when it comes to Sierra is her new lieutenant - it's going to be a Beldum this month. Beldum is particularly weak to Dark, Ghost, Ground, and Fire Types so you'll have some crossover here if you're prepping to take down Arlo at the same time.
Outside of that, Sierra's second pick can be one of the following options: Exeggutor, Lapras, or Sharpedo. Her third pick can then be either Shiftry, Houndoom, or Alakazam. She clearly favors Dark Type Pokemon, which means that you'll be easily able to bring something with a bit of a heavy punch to take her down and it should be able to mow through a fair amount of her picks.
Now that you have more information about the Pokemon GO Team Rocket February lineups, kicking their butts this month shouldn't be any harder than last month if you're smart about who you put in your team.
