Arlo will be returning to Pokémon Go alongside Giovanni for the Pokémon Go Anniversary Event. Towards the end of the event, there will be a Battle Weekend where Giovanni will return with a shadow legendary Pokémon. Arlo will also be there to defend the boss, and you need to beat him to progress through the story. In this guide, we cover all Arlo’s weaknesses and the best Pokémon to counter him in Pokémon Go.

How to beat Arlo

If you’re hunting the leaders, make sure you have a Rocket Radar in your inventory, which you can obtain after defeating six Team Rocket grunts and grabbing their mysterious components.

First Pokémon

The first Pokémon Arlo will use against you will be Exeggcute, a Grass and Psychic-type Pokémon. It will be weak against Bug, Dark, Fire, Flying, Ghost, Ice, and Poison-type attacks. You have a wide selection for this battle, with Bug-type attacks being the best option.

Second Pokémon

The second Pokémon Arlo can use against you will be Dragonite, Alolan Exeggutor, and Salamence. These Pokémon are unique but all Dragon-types, which means you can use another Dragon-type against them or use a Fairy-type. You can pick from several notable Fairy-type Pokémon in the game, such as Clefable, Galarian Rapidash, Togekiss, Gardevoir, and Sylveon.

Third Pokémon

The final Pokémon Arlo will use against you is Gardevoir, Scizor, or Steelix. These Pokémon are relatively different, with Scizor and Steelix being Steel-type, making them extremely weak to Fire-type attacks. Gardevoir is not, though, as Psychic and Fairy-type Pokémon. Gardevoir is weak against Ghost, Poison, and Steel-type moves and resistant to Dragon, Fighting, and Psychic-types. We recommend focusing on Scizor and Steelix’s Fire-type weakness for this final fight.

After defeating Arlo, you’ll have a chance to catch a shadow Exeggcute at the end of the battle, and it has the opportunity to be a shiny version.
