Pokémon Go has entered a new month and there’s An Inter-egg-sting Development Special Research with its own tasks and rewards available for trainers to complete. In addition to these objectives and prizes, the game’s transition into autumn has also changed the line-ups for Team Go Rocket leaders such as the buff Cliff. Here you’ll find a guide for how to beat Cliff in Pokémon Go during October 2020 by using suitable counters and knowing the weakness of Omanyte.

Aside from the tasks and rewards for An Inter-egg-sting Development, the game’s transition into autumn has also brought about Strange Eggs for players to get and hatch. These are 12km Eggs which house the likes of Vullaby, Absol, and Pawniard.

While the addition of 12km Strange Eggs is neat, below you’ll discover how to beat Cliff in Pokémon Go during October 2020 through counters and knowing the weakness of Omanyte.
