If you’re looking to compete in the Great League Remix in Battle League Season 8 Pokémon Go, you want to make sure you’re preparing to use the right Pokémon. The Great League Remix becomes a remix in that you will not use certain Pokémon in this league category. They follow the same rules as the traditional Grand League, so you won’t be able to use any Pokémon that exceeds a maximum of 1,500 CP. But you will not be able to use the top 20 used during the battles of the Grand League in June 2021. The first 20 Pokémon are off the table that you can use, forcing you and other players to switch your list to comply with these new rules.
Here are the best Pokémon teams and a list of Great League Remix levels that can help you decide, but that’s all 20 Pokémon banned from entering the Great League Remix in July 2021.
- Alolan Marowak
- Alolan Ninetales
- Defense Forms Deoxys
- Galarian Stunfisk
Some of the obvious favorites that appear here are Azumarill, Defense Forme Deoxys, Galarian Stunfisk, Politoed, Scrafty, Swampert, Talonflame and Venusaur. These Pokémon are notorious for appearing in the Grand League, and were expected to appear on this list. After Altarie Community Day, more players are expected to try it out against other players, and the Alolan forms of Marowak and Ninetales are becoming more and more popular due to changes in movement.
Overall, the list restricts many players to using some unconventional Pokémon, which would make the Great League Remix of July 2021 much more interesting than a regular competition can.
