Pokémon Go is set to have fantastic July 2021, but – as always – the nefarious Team Go Rocket will be up to no good. To beat their leading lady Sierra, you’ll need the best counters to exploit the weakness of Sneasel and her other minions.

Although Go Fest is the major event for the month, you should know that there’s far more to anticipate as Niantic celebrate the series’ 25th anniversary. This includes a Tepig Community Day on the 3rd and a celebration of the mobile game’s fifth birthday on the 6th.

While the above are events to pencil into your schedule, you mustn’t forget to give Team Go Rocket a good old butt whooping, too.
