How to Find Team GO Rocket Giovanni Boss
There are two main steps you need to complete before you can even attempt to beat Giovannin in Pokémon GO. The first is to acquire a Super Rocket Radar. This item is the enhanced version of the standard Rocket Radar, which allows you to battle against Team GO Rocket Leaders. However, while you can get one of the lesser Radars by fighting Team GO Rocket Grunts, the Super Rocket Radar is only available one way.
How to beat Giovanni in December 2022
And now we come to the real question of how to beat Giovanni in Pokémon GO for December 2022. To do this, you will need solid counters, which we list below. More than that, you need to strategize using his own tactics against him. First, make sure your Persian counter is not in your first slot. If you trade Pokemon, Giovanni will suspend his own attacks for 2-3 seconds, allowing you to deal damage and gain charged attack energy. And then you'll want to use that energy to burn Giovanni's two shields. He'll use them against your first two charged attacks, so don't worry about damage or type matches with them. Just shoot them to make your subsequent counters actually hit.
The one thing that really never really changed, Giovanni starts fighting in December 2022 with Persian.
