How To Beat Giovanni (December 2022)
To defeat Team GO Rocket Boss Giovanni in December 2022 of Pokémon GO, Trainers must assemble a team of their best counters for the boss battle.
Team GO Rocket Boss Giovanni is back for the holiday season in December 2022 with a lineup slightly different from his previous team in Pokémon GO. He still finds it hard to part with his beloved Persian and yet holds onto Rhyperior from earlier lineups. However, he has now swapped Machamp and Nidoking for Nidoqueen and Steelix, two combatants that can be just as devasting in the arena. Furthermore, his previous Legendary of Shadow Latios has now been swapped with Shadow Mewtwo, an opponent bound to give many Trainers a rough time.
Players should keep in mind that, to defeat Boss Giovanni in Pokémon GO in December 2022, they will need counters with the highest possible CP values. Of course, not everyone has the Candy or Stardust to Power Up their Pokémon to the max for the battle, but it is essential to avoid taking counters with Combat Power lower than Giovanni’s picks. Unlike his three Team GO Rocket Leaders, the Boss does not mess around and will make quick work of any player who recklessly enters the arena with the ultimate enemy.

Understandably, not all Trainers have a roster of Legendaries or highly rare pocket monsters to take on Giovanni in December 2022 of Pokémon GO. Therefore, those who fit into this group can refer to the optimal counters and Movesets below, sourced from Pokebattler:
