The Ultra League is a staple of the GO Battle League, and the 2500 CP limit allows you to use plenty of Legendary Pokemon. However, even if there’s plenty of choice, some Pokemon are certainly better than others!
The best battle team to use in the Pokemon GO Ultra League is:
- Giratina (Altered Forme)
Registeel is a perfect lead Pokemon, as it’s hard to counter and can dish out plenty of damage against most Pokemon types. Then, you can swap to either Cresselia or Giratina to counter whatever your opponent switches to!
However, there are plenty of other powerful Pokemon you can experiment with in your battle teams to find a great combination.
These are our top 10 picks for the best Pokemon to use in the Ultra League and their strongest attacks:
|Pokemon||Image||Type||Fast Attack||Charged Attacks|

Pokemon GO Ultra League Rules
The Ultra League has just one rule that players must follow when selecting their Pokemon. It is:
- Max Pokemon CP is 2500
As this is the only rule, you can select basically any Pokemon you want! However, every Pokemon you use should be as close to 2500 CP as possible, so you aren’t at a disadvantage.
