The Ultra League Remix in Pokémon Go is a good opportunity to mix things up and try something new while participating in the Battle League. The rules for the Ultra League Remix work a little differently than the original. The rules are roughly the same, where you can only use Pokémon that meet the requirement of 2,500 CP or less, but the 20 most popular options from the first part of season 8 have been removed. These Pokémon were the most commonly used choice for players and now you have to come up with a new team. These are the best Pokémon teams for the Ultra League Remix in Season 8 of the Pokémon Go Battle League, during July 2021.
When selecting a Pokémon Go PvP team, you want to split your team into Lead, Switch, and Closer for a complete team of three Pokémon.
The best Pokémon teams in the Ultra League Remix
Jellicent, Lucario and Meganium
Let’s start this first team with Jellicent, an excellent Pokémon at the forefront that can be extremely spammy in its attacks, and it’s a great option. To back up, you want to use Lucaria in the role of Switch, a fast attacker with high shield pressure against some of the multiple glass cannon options. Finally, in the role of Closer, we strongly recommend that you go with Megania, a robust Grass-type Pokémon.
- Jellicent: Hex, bubble beam and shadow ball
- Lucario: Abacus (fast movement), shadow ball and power-up strike
- Meganium: Whip vine (fast movement), crazy plant and earthquake
Gengar, Nidoqueen (shadow) and Regirock
Gengar can be an unorthodox Lead Pokémon. He has a much bigger attack than the defense, but he can hurt most of the Pokémon he fights. However, you may want to quickly replace your Switch Pokémon, Nidoqueen, shadow version. Nidoqueen is another fast-paced spam attack that can use its busy moves very often in most battles. To maintain the line, we strongly recommend the legendary Regirock.
- Gengar: Shadow claw (fast movement), shadow ball and shadow strike
- Nidoqueen (shadow): Toxic blow (rapid movement), poisonous fang, and earth force
- Regirock: Lock (quick movement), stone edges and focus
Steelix, Roserade and Blastoise
As for Steelix for Lead Pokémon, your opponent will probably try to fight. It has a decent amount of attack, but it’s a robust defensive Pokémon that is difficult to face. Roserade will be a good choice for your Switch option. It has boost attack with a poison strike and flexibility with a meteorological ball (Fire-type) in its movement set. For the final Closer Pokémon, Blastoise is a good choice that can be difficult to fight after dealing with Steelix.
- Steelix: Dragon’s tail (fast movement), earthquakes and crises
- Roserade: Poison punch (fast movement), weather ball (Fire-type), grass knot
- Blastoise: Water cannon (fast movement), water cannon and ice jet
Politoed, Dragalge and Heracross
It can be a fun and exciting team if you want to experiment a bit. Politoed is quite strong and you can use the shadow version to strengthen it even more, but to maintain the defense we recommend the standard. Dragalge can be used when considering your Switch Pokémon, due to the strengthening of Dragon Tail. Finally, Heracross is another troublemaker who can do great damage, but has a decent defense to keep him involved.
- Politoed: Mud (fast motion), meteorological sphere (water) and earthquake
- Dragalge: Dragon tail (fast movement), aqua tail and outrage
- Heracross: Counter, close combat and megahorn
Skarmory, Gallade and Regice
To get to this list, we want to put Skarmors in the lead role. Skarmory is always a straightforward choice and continues to top the charts, and we always recommend it somewhere in the Grand or Ultra League. Gallade, which supports him in the role of Switch, is a fast-paced fighter that can fight multiple Pokémon, making it a flexible choice. In the final role of Closer is Regice, one of the best Closers in the Ultra League, right next to Regirock.
- Skarmory: Air slash (fast motion), brave bird and attack on the sky
- Gallade: Confusion (fast movement), close combat and leaf blade
- Controls: Lock (fast movement), blizzard and earthquake
