Pokemon Go Arlo, Cliff, Sierra Counters: Shiny Shadow Venonat, Seedot, Sneasel And More Added To Team GO Rocket Leader Battles

The Team Go Rocket Leaders - Arlo, Cliff and Sierra - have a new lineup of Pokemon to battle in celebration of the Luminous Legends Y event.

As players are no doubt used to by now, the event features plenty of new timed research quests to complete and one of these steps involves defeating the three Team GO Rocket leaders.
