Pokémon Go Summer Cup Ultra League Edition best team recommendations

The sun is shining, the temperature is rising again, and it’s time for another cup interlude in Pokémon Go’s Go Battle League!

This time it’s the hyperseasonal Summer Cup. Ultra League rules apply here, but with the standard interlude cup twist that restricts which Pokémon can enter. So, not only do you have to create the most effective team possible with 2500 CP or less, but only Normal, Fire, Water, Grass, Electric, and Bug-type Pokémon are allowed.

Things you should know about forming a Summer Cup team in Pokémon Go

The advantage of the 2500 CP limit is that, like the Ultra League, you have a large number of Pokemon available without having to go straight for the Legendaries and Mythics. That said, building an Ultra League Pokemon from scratch (not the move) can be quite expensive in terms of Candy and Stardust, so if you can use a Pokemon you’ve already built, you’re already a third of the way there. Especially if you have one of the aforementioned legendary or mythical ones!

One of the best things about these cups is being forced to choose from a small group of Pokémon. Restrictions, as they say, encourage creativity.

Unlike shallower pools like the Flying Cup, three of these Pokémon types form a natural rock-paper-scissors. This means that we must look to the other three to remember their weaknesses.

Normal, of course, is weak to Fighting-type attacks; Electric-types are weak to Ground-type attacks and Insect-types are weak to Fire, Flying, and Rock-type attacks.

This means that Normal-type Pokemon, with their only weakness, will likely be quite popular, while Grass-types, which are weak to Fire and Bug, as well as Flying and Ice, will likely be fairly easy to beat. . . This time around, there’s a pretty decent distribution of Pokemon at the top of the meta, which means we’re expecting a well-balanced cup.

Keep this in mind as you build your team!

You will be able to use fire and grass type Pokémon in the Summer Cup.

Remember, whichever Pokemon you choose, look for Pokemon with a decent amount of bulk (the ability to survive charged moves, depending on the weakness type, so you can fire off some of your own) and those that will best counter or expose weaknesses. weaknesses. the current meta (which is a term for what the community is currently using).

While there are specific Pokémon and types that dominate the meta, remember that with Go Battle League (and player vs. player battles in general) you’re going blind; So even if you cover yourself with a wide range of offensive and defensive options, no team is invincible.

Still, even with some of the following Pokémon on your team, you should be able to get better results than if you simply selected those that came as close to the 1500 CP limit as possible.

The Season of Adventure Abundance is here! He has brought the Timed Investigation: Master Ball quest, which offers you the chance to win another Master Ball. There’s also a new season of Go Battle League to participate in. Be sure to compete in Shadow Raids, complete Routes, use Daily Adventure Incense for a chance to encounter Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres. This incense can also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

Our recommendations for the Pokémon Go Summer Cup

There is no “best” team you can choose (since, as mentioned above, you don’t know what you’re up against) and not everyone has access to all Pokémon types.

Instead, here’s a general list of Summer Cup Pokémon recommended for team building, with a wide range of sources that should suit all players, whether you’ve been collecting creatures since day one or just getting started. to play.

Remember that you are only allowed one of each in Go Battle League, and ideally you will want to build a team with different types of strengths and defense. For example, if you build a team with two bugs and a Bulbasaur, a single Blaziken could ruin your day.

It’s also worth noting that if you really want to compete, each of your Pokémon needs two charged moves. If you want to skimp on Stardust and execute just one move, do so at your own risk: you have been warned.

Our Pokémon Go Summer Cup team recommendations in order of appearance in the National Pokédex. While there is some overlap with the Ultra League guide, be sure to read the full post, we’ll recommend a few move changes:


Type: Normal / Flying Weaknesses: Electric, Ice and Rock Recommended IV: 15/15/15 Recommended Moves: Wing Attack (Legacy Fast), Brave Bird (charged), Feather Dance (charged)

Feather Dance Pidgeot retains some reputation after breaking the game a few seasons ago. While the bug has now been fixed, this Pokémon is still a meta-definer, especially in the Summer Cup.

With resistance to two relevant types and weakness to just one, it’s already in a good position. But when you factor in the fast-charging Wing Attack and -2 attack that Feather Dance offers, you know you’re in for a winner. When you need to cast a Hail Mary, Brave Bird is there to deal massive damage; the fact that you apply a -3 defense penalty to yourself is less of an issue once you’ve shredded his attack…

This is one of the strongest Pokemon in this meta, if not the strongest, with wins against Trevenant, Virizion, Shadow Charizard, Abomasnow, and Shadow Swampert. Be careful with electric types though, as Zapdos is a quick loss. Other losses will come from Walrein, Mantine and Dubwool.


Type: Water/Poison Weaknesses: Electric, Ground, and Psychic Recommended IV: 00/13/15 Recommended Moves: Poison Jab (Fast), Scald (Charged), Sludge Wave (Charged)

While you might see the Water-type’s eligibility and immediately run into Swampert, its double weakness to Grass is a huge drawback. Instead, the smart money for Water types is on Tentacruel. It is resistant to three of the four main types here, with electric being its only relevant weakness. On top of that, it’s extremely bulky, which is always a big plus.

Its reliance on Poison is also pretty clever, bypassing many Water-type resistances to deal massive damage with Sludge Wave. Scald is a high energy debuff if you find something that resists your game plan.

In terms of matchups, this means wins against Virizion, Abomasnow, Trevenant (three Grass-types), Charizard, and Walrein. The losses, meanwhile, will come from Swampert, Jellicent, Escavalier, Pidgeot and Lanturn.


Type: Electric / Flying Weaknesses: Ice and Rock Recommended IV: 01/12/13 Recommended Moves: Thunder Shock (Legacy Fast), Thunderbolt (Charged), Drill Peck (Charged)

The original Angry Bird is generally excellent in limited goals and this one is no different. While Zapdos and Shadow Zapdos are glass cannons, the latter (and glassier) of the two is the way to go if you can.

Spamming Zapdos with Thunder Shock makes it excellent against any flyer that reaches the cup (Charizard and Pidgeot) along with the likes of Virizion, Buzzwole, and Roserade.

Both Zapdos and Shadow Zapdos work well, and the electric one is at least neutral against everything else in the meta, so if you have a decent one to level up to 2500 CP, you shouldn’t overlook it.

Just remember that, as always with the world’s favorite thunder chicken, it fries quite easily and can even lose to other electric types. Watch out for Walrein, Lanturn, Swampert, Abomasnow, and Trevenant, and switch out when necessary.


Type: Normal Weaknesses: Fighting Recommended IVs: 04/15/15 Recommended Moves: Rollout (Fast), Body Slam (Charged), Thunderbolt (Charged)

Everyone loves tanks and there are few more tanks in this meta than Miltank.

This mono-Normal type is extremely bulky and excellent against almost anything that doesn’t use Fighting-type attacks. Charizard, Pelipper, Walrein, Abomasnow and Trevenant bow before the king of cows. However, Fighting types Virizion and Buzzwole will have you on the ropes, and characters like Swampert, Pidgeot, and Roserade will eventually wear you down.

Still, if you want to run the tanky archetype, Rollout is a fast charge move that allows you to spam Body Slams like nobody’s business. If you encounter a Ghost or something that is weak to Electric, you can fire off a Thunderbolt as cover.


Type: Fire/Psychic Weaknesses: Dark, Ghost, Earth, Rock, and Water Recommended IVs: 10/13/15 Recommended Moves: Quick Attack (Fast), V-Create (Charged), Overheat (Charged)

While we expect to see a lot of Charizard in this meta (because when you shoot, we all know who comes to mind), Victini is actually your best bet. Its only problem is that, as a mythical Pokémon, it is not exactly easy to get. Currently, veteran players will have exactly one maximum.

Still, if used correctly, Victini pays off. Quick Attack is a quick charge move that converts directly into two massive attacks: one removes your attack (Overheat) and the other your defense (V-Create), so make sure to use it when the opponent’s shields are low. If they have shields, remember that you have to create V before you can destroy.

If played correctly, you will have victories against Abomasnow, Walrein, Buzzwole, Virizion, and even Shadow Charizard. Meanwhile, losses come from Shadow Swampert, Pidgeot, Pelipper, Trevenant, and Blaziken.


Type: Grass/Fighting Weaknesses: Flying (2x), Fairy, Fire, Ice, Poison, and Psychic IV Recommended: 01/15/12 Recommended Moves: Double Kick (Fast), Holy Sword (Legacy Charged), Stone Edge ( charged)

Virizion is an all-around good Pokémon, although it is often let down by its long list of weaknesses. In a meta where most of them are excluded, Virizion really has a chance to shine.

Bulky, spammy, and flexible, Virizion is a great addition to any team. Double Kick is a good move; Sacred Sword is excellent against normals that try to avoid weaknesses, and Stone Edge is there to break through anything that seems resistant to Fighting-types.

In terms of matchups, you’re looking for wins against Obstagoon, Shadow, and the usual Swampert, Abomasnow, and Walrein. The losses, however, come hard and fast on the part of Pidgeot and Shadow Charizard. Trevenant, Buzzwole, and Venusaur will also give you a loss, but a little slower.


Type: Bug/Fighting Weaknesses: Flying (2x), Fairy, Fire and Psychic IV Recommended: 01/14/12 Recommended Moves: Counter (Fast), Super Power (Charged), Lunge (Charged)

Few will come to this meta expecting an army of bugs. Buzzwole, however, is someone everyone should watch out for. This dynamic, spammy Pokémon has clearly been hitting the gym and packs a punch.

The counterattack is one of the best quick moves in the game. Superpower is great, but it reduces your attack and defense by one level each. Meanwhile, the lunge will reduce your opponent’s attack, making that superpower a little less problematic.

Pit Buzzwole against Swampert (Shadow or normal), Abomasnow, Virizion, or Walrein and you’ll be laughing. However, be careful around anything with flames or wings (especially Charizard). Jellicent and Trevenant will also cause you pain, so avoid them if you can.

Summer Cup: Ultra League Edition will run from Thursday June 8 to Thursday June 15. It will begin and end at the following times:
