February 2023 is featuring new lineups for the Team GO Rocket Leaders in Pokémon GO, one of which is overseen by Cliff, a.k.a. The Bighearted Ruffian. This brawn Brutish Gangster is not an opponent who will go down easily, as Trainers will need optimal counters to achieve victory. CP and ideal Movesets are essential, but understanding the weaknesses of Cliff’s team for this month should be the priority when preparing for the Team GO Rocket boss fight.
