  1. Aerodactyl
  2. Gallade, Cradily or Slowking
  3. Tyranitar, Mamoswine or Dusknoir

Aerodactyl counters

Aerodactyl is Cliff’s current first offering and it’s a Flying and rock type. This one is a difficult Pokemon to deal with in battles because the two don’t share any type weaknesses. Your bet will be to find out which of the  Pokemon Cliff has choosed for his second and third in your encounter and after that pick the best Aerodactyl counter based on who can perform the best against his other choices too.

Tyranitar Stone Edge or Smackdown

Cobalion Metal Claw or Sacred Sword

Melmetal Thunder Shock or Superpower

Empoleon Waterfall or Flash Cannon

Gallade counters

One of the initial option for the second Pokemon Cliff can throw at you is Gallade, a Fighting Type Psychic. Gallade is weak to Ghost-type, Fairy, Fighting type moves, but it’s not advised to use Fighting types because they are inherently weak to Gallade’s moves too. You must be careful if the opposing Gallade knows the  Charm because it is a powerful move that can end your battle quickly. You can Try some of the following Gallade counters:

Pokemon Counter

Jirachi           Confusion or Doom Desire

Lugia             Dragon Tail or Sky Attack

Ho-Oh           Incinerate or Brave Bird

Darkrai           Snarl or Shadow Ball

Cradily counters

Cradily is a Grass and Rock type Pokemon with a varied move pool that can make it somewhat tricky to counter. There are the following main counters that can perform well against Cradily but if one of them will be unable to work for you because you take too much damage then  try one of the others.

Giratina                     Shadow Claw or Shadow Ball

Slowking counters

Among Cliff’s second Pokemon options Slowking is the easiest to counter because it is outright weak to Ghost and dark type moves. It offers a wide range of moves like Blizzard, Psychic, and Fire Blast, but all of the below counters should be able to withstand them.

Umbreon       Snarl or Dark Pulse

Metagross       Bullet Punch or Meteor Mash

Palkia             Dragon Breath or Draco Meteor

Magnezone     Spark or Wild Charge

Tyranitar counters

It is also possible that Cliff can use one of three Pokemon for his final choice. First up is Tyranitar and infamously one of the strongest Pokemon in the game and its Fighting types are undoubtedly one of the best choices here because it can deal 4x damage to Tyranitar.

Machamp Counter or Dynamic Punch

Hariyama Counter or Dynamic Punch

Dusknoir counters

As we all know that  Dusknoir’s possible moves are Dark type and the best counters are all Dark or normal types thanks to the resistance. You can also opt for other Ghost type Pokemon because Ghost is strong against and weak to Ghost, but it  is indeed  a dangerous game to play.

Pokemon Moveset

Snorlax Lick or Body Slam

Obstagoon Counter or Night Slash

Lickilicky Lick or Shadow Ball

Porygon2 Lock On or Tri Attack

Mamoswine counters

As a Ground or ice type Pokemon, Mamoswine is weak to Fighting, Fire, Grass, Steel, and Hydro type moves, which gives you a wide range of possible Pokemon to counter it. Mamoswine is able to possess a bunch of different move types though, so  you can just pick one of the counters below that are not weak to the Mamoswine you’re facing.
