Pokemon Go Giovanni Counters September 2022
Giovanni’s lineup for September 2022 is likely to be:
- Phase 1: Persian
- Phase 2: Nidoking/Machamp/Rhyperior
- Phase 3: Shadow Latios/Latias
Phase 1: Persian
The first Pokemon you’ll encounter from Giovanni is always Persian. The best Pokemon to use is a Fighting-Type Pokemon like Machamp, Breloom, or Lucaro. There are other options, and having the move Counter in your arsenal can help you stop Persian and secure an early victory.
Phase 2: Nidoking/Machamp/Rhyperior
Nidoking is weak to Pokemon of the Ground, Ice, Psychic, and Water types, so you can use a Pokemon with fast and charge moves, like Glaceon or Mewtwo, to defeat it. Additionally, Nidoking can be defeated by Garchomp by using attacks like Mud Shot and Earthquake.
Fairy, Flying, and Psychic moves are the most effective against Machamp. Mewtwo is an excellent choice for both Nidoking and Machamp. The classic Psycho Cut and Psychic Strike combo, which works well against Nidoking, also works well against Machamp.
To quickly defeat Rhyperior, you’ll need a Grass or Water type Pokemon with a powerful move like Hydro Cannon or Frenzy Plant. Fast moves such as Razor Leaf and Waterfall can be extremely useful in opening up opportunities during a fight.
Phase 3: Shadow Latias/Latios
Giovanni’s phase 3 Pokemon is where things get less clear. In May, the Team Rocket leader called upon Shadow Latias before pivoting to Shadow Latios for June, July, and August. If Latios reappears, you should use Bug, Dark, Dragon, Fairy, Ghost, or Ice-type Pokemon to defeat it.
