Pokémon Go has entered a new year, and there’s an event packed January calendar for trainers to enjoy. While there’s plenty to look forward to such as the Unova Collection Challenge which officially begins on the 5th but has already gone live for some, here you’ll discover how to beat Sierra in Pokémon Go during January 2021 by knowing the weakness of Drowzee and using suitable counters.

But, away from upcoming events and battles, below you’ll discover how to beat Sierra in Pokémon Go during January 2021 by using suitable counters and knowing the weakness of Drowzee.
