The Little Cup is the perfect time to use some of your low-CP Pokemon that you don’t usually get to battle with. This is because the maximum CP for this cup is just 500!

The best battle team to use in the Pokemon GO Little Cup is:

  • Bronzor
  • Wynaut
  • Deino

Bronzor and Wynaut are basically must-picks for the Little Cup, thanks to their defense and durability. Meanwhile, Deino adds some damage to this battle team and helps you counter some more of the meta choices.

The table below shows the top 10 Pokemon to use in the Little Cup as well as their strongest attacks. Just make sure you know how to get Elite Fast and Charged TMs in Pokemon GO so you can teach them these attacks!
