If you want to succeed in the Halloween Cup: Great League Edition in Pokemon GO, you’ll need to use the best team for it!

As only the creepiest Pokemon are allowed to take part, making a team for this competition can be tough. Luckily, we’ve got a list of the best Pokemon to use as well as their strongest attacks.

The best team to use in the Halloween Cup: Great League Edition is:

  • Carbink
  • Golbat
  • Toxapex

Carbink is almost essential as your lead Pokemon for the Halloween Cup, as it almost always forces your opponent into an early switch. Meanwhile, between Golbat and Toxapex, you can counter almost all of the meta picks!

These are our top 10 picks for the Halloween Cup: Great League Edition and their most powerful attacks:

As signified by the (XL) next to its name, you’ll need XL Candy to power up Carbink to the 1500 CP limit. However, it is certainly worth it as Carbink is the strongest Pokemon for this cup!
