Best Team for the Sunshine Cup: Great League Edition in Pokemon GO

The Sunshine Cup in Pokemon GO has started and this time it includes some Great League rules. Get ready to participate because it will only be available until May 17th. Want to get involved but not sure which Pokemon are the best to use? We’ve put together for you this helpful guide that compiles the best teams to win the Sunshine Cup.

Conditions of participation for the Sunshine Cup

In order for a Pokémon to be included in the Sunshine Cup as part of your team, it must meet a few requirements:

  • 1,500 CP or less
  • Is a Normal, Fire, Grass, or Ground-type Pokémon
    • A Pokemon can be dual-type as long as it is one of the above types
  • Can’t be Charizard

The teams we put together for you here meet the type requirements, so all you have to worry about is that their CP is low enough.

Best Pokémon for the Sunshine Cup

With those requirements in mind, here are the best Pokémon for the Sunshine Cup.

  • deaf boss: Wing Attack, Feather Dance, Brave Bird
  • night owls: Wing Attack, Sky Attack, Shadow Ball
  • dubwool: double kick, body slam, payback
  • Vigoroth: counterattack, body slam, bulldoze
  • Victini: Fast Attack, V-Create, Overheat

Most of the strongest teams will have both Pidgeot and Noctowl with them. Note: Pidgeot must be taught Wing Attack via an Elite TM. If you don’t have access to it, you can replace the attack with Air Slash or choose a completely different Pokemon.
