It’s always tough to decide what team to use in the Pokemon GO Battle League, and this is especially the case for the Electric Cup: Great League Edition, as only Electric-type Pokemon under 1500 CP are eligible. Plus, there are a number of banned Pokemon that you can’t select!

That’s why we’ve got a rundown of the meta team lineup, as well as some powerful alternatives, for this cup!

The best battle team to use in the Pokemon GO Electric Cup: Great League Edition is:

  • Lanturn
  • Galvantula
  • Minun

This team is well-balanced, especially considering the limitations of the cup, and has a very high damage output. However, other popular Electric-type Pokemon like Luxray, Electrode, and Alolan Graveler family are also strong choices!

These are the top 10 best Pokemon for the Electric Cup: Great League Edition below, as well as their strongest attacks:
