Pokémon Go has entered a new month and this has brought about An Inter-egg-sting Development with tasks and rewards. Aside from having the usual objectives and prizes, it also asks players to beat all of the Team Go Rocket leaders and boss including Arlo. With the line-up for each Team Go Rocket leader having changed, here you’ll discover how to beat Arlo in Pokémon Go during October 2020 by using counters and exploiting the weakness of Growlithe.

While the Strange Eggs are a neat incentive, below you’ll discover how to beat Arlo in Pokémon Go during October 2020 by using counters and knowing the weakness of Growlithe.
