Pokemon GO Sierra October 2020 encounters are all about taking down Team GO Rocket to protect defenseless Pokemon inside the Strange Eggs.

Niantic Lab's Strange Egg event is in full swing, with trainers doing their best to battle Team GO Rocket Grunts, Executives, and even the Leader, Giovanni, himself. For every victory, trainers have a shot at hatching a Strange Egg with one of several mysterious Pokemon inside. Unsurprisingly, as an Executive, Sierra is one of the opponents at the forefront of the event.

We previously outlined everything trainers should know about Sierra and her team. However, for those looking for a refresher or overview of possible changes, look no further.

Sierra has a team of three Pokemon she will use in trainer battles. The first Pokemon will always be Drowzee while the second and third come from a pool of three choices. Her second Pokemon could be Lapras, Exeggutor, or Sharpedo. Her third and final choice could be Houndoom, Shiftry, or Alakzam.

Counters for Drowzee include Gengar, Darkrai, and Chandelure. As a pure psychic-type, Drowzee is weakness to dark, ghost, and bug-type moves. Therefore, players should seek out team members with moves like Shadow Claw, Snarl, Hex, and Shadow Ball.

Counters for the rest of her team have also already been outlined in a previous article.

Previously, her first Pokemon would be Beldum or Lapras. It seems that Lapras has taken a back seat while Beldum is nowhere to be seen. Perhaps trainers were able to rescue it once and for all?

Niantic certainly hasn't been shy with its association of Sierra, Vullaby, and Mandibuzz. Could one of these Pokemon be joining her team in the future?
