Pokemon GO: Best Hisui Cup Battle Team

These are all of the best Pokemon you can use in the GO Battle League’s new Hisui Cup. You’ll easily win with these Pokemon on your Battle Team!

PvP battling in Pokemon GO is all about having the best Pokemon for the job. However, with every GO Battle League tournament having different rules, you’ll need to switch up your team depending on what cup or league you’re entering.

The new Pokemon GO Hisuian Discoveries event is a celebration of the Hisui Region. Therefore, it’s no surprise that there’s a Hisui-themed cup in the GO Battle League too.

You’ll need to use your best Pokemon from this region to win your battles in the Hisui Cup!

Pokemon GO Hisuian Discoveries Event

Pokemon GO Hisui Cup Start Date & End Date

The Pokemon GO Hisui Cup started on July 27 and will be active in the GO Battle League for a whole week.

The Hisui Cup will then rotate out of the GO Battle League on August 2, when the Hisuian Discoveries event ends.

Be sure to check out the Pokemon GO Battle League Season 11 Schedule to see what cup will be replacing it.

Hisui Cup Rules

The Pokemon that you can use in the Hisui Cup are limited. These are the rules for the Hisui Cup:

  • Max CP per Pokemon: 1500
  • Only Pokemon first discovered in the Hisui region or with a Pokedex number from #387 to #493 are allowed

This certainly limits your options a lot, but with three new Hisuian Pokemon added to the game this week, the selection might not be as restrictive as it first seems.
