A new category to choose from in the Pokémon Go Battle League for a limited time is called the Great League Remix. It follows the same rules as the Great League, with players only using Pokémon not exceeding the 1.500 CP limit, but there is one small problem. The top 20 most used Pokémon from previous Great League battles will not participate in the Great League Remix. We've listed the 20 banned Pokémon elsewhere, and you won't be able to use any of them during these fights. These 20 were some of the top picks, and now the meta has changed a bit, forcing players out of their comfort zone.
These are some of our recommended Pokémon Teams that we think you should consider using during Great League Remix fights.
Beedrill (Shadow), Diggersby e Regirock
For our first team, we have the shadow version of Beedrill as the main Pokémon. Beedrill has the ability to be a fast fighter, spamming his attack and putting shield pressure on most teams. But it's a glass cannon. For that reason, you want Diggersby in the role of Switch, ready to trade when Beedrill is about to take too much damage. In the slow ending, we will recommend Regirock, the Legendary Rock-type Pokémon.
- Beedrill: Poison jab (quick move), drill run and X-scissor
- Diggersby: Mudstrike (fast move), fire fist, and earthquake
- Regirock: Snap (fast move), stone edge, and explosive fire
Nidoqueen (Shadow), Lapras and Electivire
The next team features the shadow version of Nidoqueen as their main Pokémon. Nidoqueen has climbed the ranks since season 8 and looks like he's starting to race in season 9. If you've had a team with his last season, you want to use that. Otherwise, having Lapras as the Pokémon Switch and Electivire in the Closer role is a good assortment of Pokémon for this team.
- Nidoqueen (Shadow): Poison Strike (fast moving), Poison Fang, and Earth Power
- Lapras: Ice Shard (fast moving), surf and skull strike
- Electivire: Thundershock (fast move), ice fist, and wild charge
Machamp, Steelix and Ho-Oh
If you love Fighting-type Pokémon, we will recommend Machamp in the Great League Remix. Machamp is an incredibly powerful Pokémon, but it is a glass cannon. For this reason, you want Steelix as the Switch to change when things go wrong and keep Ho-Oh in reserve as the closest Pokémon.
- Machamp (Shadow): Counter (fast move), cross chop and rock slide
- Steelix: dragon tail (fast move), earthquake and creak
- Ho-Oh: Incinerate (fast moving), brave bird and earthquake
Mantine, Zangoose and Registeel
The next team we'll talk about includes Mantine, a bulky and fast paced Pokémon capable of doing decent damage as a primary choice. It's a technical choice with a lot of attack options, so choosing the best combination of quick moves and charged moves is important and will vary depending on your teammates. In the Switch role, you want to take Zangoose with you and have Registeel as the Closer.
- Mantine: bullet seed (fast moving), bubble beam and ice beam
- Zangoose: Shadow Claw (fast move), close combat and night rift
- Registeel: Snap (fast motion), focus blast and flash cannon
Dewgong, Skuntank and Meganium
The last Pokémon team we will share includes Dewgong, Water and Ice-type Pokémon. Dewgong is an exceptionally bulky Pokémon, but it doesn't have the best attack and has low shield pressure. For this reason, you will want to have Skuntank in the role of Switch. Skuntank has solid, fast movement pressure and various decent charge moves that it can use during battle. The last Pokémon you want for your Closer is Meganium, a reasonable Grass-type Pokéon that can handle the role as a last resort.
- Dewgong: Shard of ice (fast moving), freezing wind, and pulsating water
- Skuntank: Poison jab (fast move), crunch and sludge bomb
- Meganium: Vine whip (fast moving), hectic plant and earthquake
