It was only a matter of time before Fighting-type Pokémon were brought back into the spotlight for the Pokémon GO Battle League. For the Mythical Wishes season, the Fighting Cup Remix is one of the first type-based cups to appear, and there are some new rules to freshen up the competition.

During the Mythic Blade event, there will be plenty of Fighting-type Pokémon spawning around the wild, so you have a chance to build a decent team if you’re behind. In this Pokémon GO Battle League guide, we’ll go over the best picks for the Fighting Cup Great League Remix.

Each of the moves listed is integral to a Pokémon’s effectiveness in the GO Battle League. You can get away with having just one of the charge moves listed for each, but you’ll likely lose to some who has the full moveset. Aside from the moves, make sure you’re using a good lead, attack, and closer combination of Pokémon for your team.

Fighting Cup Great League Remix Rules – Pokémon GO

There aren’t too many rules to the latest Fighting Cup Remix. Of course, you can only use Pokémon that have a Fighting-type, but dual-types are allowed. Psychic-types are also banned entirely so the meta isn’t dominated by one major counter typing in the GO Battle League.

The rest of the rules come from the title itself. This cup is in the Great League, so Pokémon must be 1,500 CP or lower. There are also four bans because this is a remix. Don’t expect to see Buzzwole, Sneasler, Hakamo-o, and Kommo-o. Everything else is fair game.
