Here are the best Pokemon Go Sierra counters for April 2021.

Pokemon Go Sierra counters
Below are all of the best counters to Sierra's Pokemon, listed in the order they can appear.
#1: Carvanha counters
Carvanha isn't a particularly strong Pokemon to begin with and since it's a Water/Dark-type, there are a lot of possible counters. You can see off Carvanha with ease by using any of the following counters.
|Torterra||Razor Leaf/Frenzy Plant|
|Hydreigon||Dragon Breath/Dark Pulse|
#2: Hippowdon counters
Hippowdon is only a Ground-type Pokemon, but its move pool is so varied and wild that there's a chance even the best Hippowdon counter may be weak to its moves in battle. As a result, try some of the following counters and if one fails, move onto the next.
|Torterra||Razor Leaf/Frenzy Plant|
|Roserade||Razor Leaf/Grass Knot|
#2: Porygon-Z counters
Since Porygon-Z is a Normal-type Pokemon, it is only weak to Fighting-types. It has a powerful move pool, but if you go all out with your strongest Fighting-type Pokemon, you should be able to take it down.
#2: Mismagius counters
Like Dusknoir when fighting Cliff, Mismagius can be taken down easily by using Normal and Dark-type Pokemon, since it only has Ghost-type moves.
|Ursaring||Shadow Claw/Close Combat|
#3: Houndoom counters
Houndoom, on the other hand, is a Fire-/Dark-type Pokemon, so Bug-types would be the worst option here. Any Fighting-, Ground-, Rock-, and Water-type moves will deal double damage against Houndoom, so if you faced off against Sharpedo in slot two, hopefully your Fighting-type counter will still be healthy to deal damage to Sharpedo.
|Rampardos||Smack Down/Rock Slide|
#3: Flygon counters
Flygon is a Ground/Dragon-type with some powerful moves; ideally, you'll still have one shield left here to block a charged attack. You'll want to use Fairy, Ice, and Dragon-type Pokemon, but only go for the latter if the Flygon you're against knows Mud Shot. Otherwise Flygon's Dragon-type moves will see you off.
|Alolan Ninetales||Powder Snow/Weather Ball|
|Articuno||Ice Shard/Icy Wind|
#3: Walrein counters
Walrein is an Ice/Water-type Pokemon, so Grass, Fighting, Rock, and Steel-type moves are the best to use. Unfortunately, Fire-type Pokemon aren't recommended thanks to Walrein's Water-type moves.
|Tangrowth||Vine Whip/Power Whip|
|Alolan Exeggutor||Bullet Seed/Seed Bomb|
|Metagross||Bullet Punch/Meteor Mash|
