Pokemon GO Ultra Premier Rules
Pokemon trainers battling in the Pokemon GO Battle League Ultra Premier have two different rules to follow when selecting their Pokemon for the competition:
- Pokemon must be 2500 CP or less to enter
- Legendary and Mythical Pokemon are not allowed
Unlike the Ultra Premier Classic, you can use Pokemon that have been powered up with XL Candy. This is very handy and widens the pool of useful Pokemon significantly.
Make sure to take part in as many battles as you can this week. There isn’t too much time left to earn all of the GO Battle League rewards in the Season of Light!
