The mobile AR game is no stranger to PvP contests and revamps to spice up how Trainers mold a powerful team, but this one — aptly named Great League Remix — bans the top 20 Pokémon used by Ace rank and above Trainers.
The absence of those popular Pokémon forces Trainers to readjust their team composition, using creatures they may or may not know much about. We'll break down everything you need to know, including the best Pokémon to use.
The Great League Remix bans Venusaur, Froslass, Walrein, and other top creatures in Pokémon GO.
Despite the ban on the top 20 Pokémon, according to the most used ones by Ace rank and above Trainers, the usual Great League CP limit will stay at 1,500. Moreover, the Great League Remix will be active from now until July 21.
Below is a list of those 20 banned Pokémon barred from entering the Great League Remix:
- Alolan Ninetales
- Deoxys — Defense
- Galarian Stunfisk
What are the best Pokémon to use in Great League Remix?
It's early to determine which team comps are the best. But according to the fan-led PvPoke website dedicated to Pokémon GO, we learned Carbink, Scrafty, and Dubwool were the top three Pokémon for Great League Remix.
Carbink's placement isn't a huge surprise since the Rock and Fairy-type has fantastic defense and is only weak to Fighting moves. Additionally, it slings out solid damage with Rock Throw, Rock Slide, and Moonblast.
On the other hand, Scrafty is a Dark and Fighting-type that shines with Counter and Power-Up Punch. Both can put some pressure on the enemy team. Also, use Foul Play to defeat Ghost and Psychic-type Pokémon because Scrafty's Fighting moves aren't as effective.
If you want a great all-rounder, Dubwool is a Normal-type that performs well in PvP. Between its Body Slam, Double Kick, and Payback moveset, Dubwool can be a threat to most Pokémon that appear in the Great League Remix.
Below these three, Vigoroth, Regirock, Quagsire, Whiscash, and Lickitung are great for the revamped tourney. But as always, having the best doesn't guarantee success, so you must make a proper Pokémon team to come out on top.
