Pokemon Go has entered the month of August 2022 and you will need to use the best counters to beat Team Rocket leader Arlo and his lineup that includes Salamence.

There’s plenty to anticipate this month for Niantic trainers. There’s the Go Fest event in Sapparo, Japan, on August 5th, there’s a Bug Out event happening on the 10th, and the community day is Galarian Zigzagoon on the 13th.

While all of the above is exciting, you can find and battle the nefarious Team Go Rocket at any time.

Salamence weakness

Salamence is a Dragon and Flying-type creature with a major weakness to ice.

It is also vulnerable to Rock, Dragon, and Fairy attacks. Because of its major Achilles heel to Ice assaults, the best counters to use include Mamoswine, Weavile, and Jynxx.

However, you could also exploit its other vulnerabilities Rhyperior and Rampardos.
