Team GO Rocket Leader Sierra is out being a menace on the streets of Pokémon GO‘s AR realm, and if Trainers wish to beat her, they will need to know what her lineup of Pokémon is in August 2022. To confront this Team GO Rocket Leader, players must first collect items by defeating Grunts found about the world. These Grunts can be encountered via PokéStops or mobile hot air balloons. Once beaten, they will drop Mysterious Components, which can be combined into a Rocket Radar. These devices will reveal the August 2022 locations of Leader Hideouts or cause a Leader like Sierra to approach the Trainer directly in Pokémon GO.

According to YouTube content creator SquidgySilver, since most of the pocket monsters in Sierra’s team for August 2022 in Pokémon GO are weak to Electric and Ground, the two best counters to beat this Team GO Rocket Leader are Magnezone and Garchomp.
Magnezone is an Electric- and Steel-type Pokémon that evolves from Magnemite and Magneton using 125 Candy. However, remember that a Magnetic Lure Module must be active at a nearby PokéStop for Magneton’s evolution to be successful. Garchomp is a Dragon and Ground Pokémon that evolves from Gible and Gabite using 125 Candy. No special evolution conditions are required for this monster.
