The Evolution Cup is one of the only times when middle-stage Pokemon can shine in the GO Battle League. In fact, middle-stage Pokemon are the only ones that can be selected!

Vigoroth, Hakamo-o, and Dusclops is the best team to use in the Evolution Cup: Great League Edition.

This is a well-balanced team that can counter all of the meta picks for the competition. We recommend using Vigoroth as your lead Pokemon as it is a Normal-type, making it hard to counter.

Even if that trio is the best choice, there are loads of other Pokemon that can be great picks for the Evolution Cup.

Once you know how to teach your Pokemon new attacks with Elite Fast and Charged TMs, find out the top 10 Pokemon and their strongest attacks in the table below.

Pokemon GO Evolution Cup: Great League Edition Rules

Players must follow two rules for selecting Pokemon when choosing what Pokemon to use in the Evolution Cup: Great League Edition. They are:

  • Pokemon must be 1500 CP or less
  • Only Pokemon that have evolved once and can evolve again are eligible

This limits your options a lot, but there are still plenty of powerful Pokemon you can choose from in the Evolution Cup.
