Want to know the best Pokémon Go Cliff counters for this month? Well, we’re here to help. Cliff can sometimes feel like the toughest Team Rocket Go Leader, so it’s only natural you may need a little bit of extra help working out which Pokémon you should use in a team against him.
With help from our Cliff counters guide, you will soon have a team full of strong Pokémon to take into battle. We have also gone ahead and listed all of the available rewards you can get your hands on by knocking out all three of the Team Rocket Go leaders’ Pokémon. Check out our Pokémon Go Arlo, Pokémon Go Sierra, and Pokémon Go Giovanni guides for even more assistance.
