What are the best Pokémon Go Cliff counters for Seedot?

Currently, Cliff’s first Pokémon is always the Grass-type, Seedot. Luckily, it’s fairly easy to beat, so we recommend choosing a Pokémon that is also super effective against the remaining members of his team.

  • Crobat – Air Slash and Shadow Ball or Sludge Bomb
  • Dialga – Dragon Breath and Iron Head or Draco Meteor
  • Dragonite – Dragon Breath and Dragon Claw or Hurricane
  • Moltres – Fire Spin and Sky Attack or Overheat

We only recommend using Moltres if Cliff’s second Pokémon is either Hariyama or Poliwrath.
