Choosing and choosing the right Pokémon team for your PvP battles in Pokémon Go can be difficult. When it comes to the Ultra League, it’s even more difficult if you don’t have the right choices that have been enhanced with XL sweets or legendary Pokémon that you can use. To make sure you’re making the best choices, we’ve created a list of Ultra League levels that you can use to create the best Ultra League Pokémon teams for season 8.

You can only choose from the three Pokémon you have on your team. Each of your Pokémon must not exceed 2,500 CP. You can use any Pokémon for the Ultra League as long as it does not exceed 2500 CP. For your three Pokémon, you choose Lead, Switch, and Closer for your team, each of which serves to defeat the opponent you face in the battle league.

List of Ultra League levels

List of leadership levels

The lead Pokémon on your team will be the first you use in combat. They want to be a bulky choice, able to stand alone in battle, but they could rely on a single shield to keep up.

Level Pokémon
WITH Abomasnow, Alolan Ninetales, Articuno, Cresselia, Galarian Stunfisk, Registeel, Shadow Nidoqueen, Talonflame
AND Drifblim, Giratina (modified), Lapras, Mandibuzz, Meganium, Scrafty, Steelix, Swampert
B Charizard, Clefable, Forretress, Mewtwo (Armored), Shadow Drapion, Shadow Politoed, Shadow Zapdos, Umbreon
C Flygon, Ho-Oh, Likilicky, Primeape, Regirock, Shadow Gliscor, Skarmory, Suicune
D Alolan Muk, Gyarados, Hypno, Lucario, Lugia, Obstagoon, Snorlax, Venusaur

It will be an election of Pokémon that you want to have enough to last in battle, but they also want to have enough offensive power to eliminate most of the Pokémon they face. The less weakness they have, the better they will be. Don’t be afraid to use at least one shield on them.

A Switch Pokémon is an option on your list that you exchange when your main Pokémon is eliminated or fights one of their weaknesses. With your Switch Pokémon, you want to act like a glass cannon in your team, capable of defeating all the Pokémon they face.

Level Pokémon
WITH Cresselia, Mew, Politoed, Registeel, Shadow Abomasnow, Shadow Suicune, Swampert, Zangoose
AND Alolan Ninetales, Drifblim, Lapras, Shadow Muk, Shadow Nidoqueen, Shadow Snorlax, Skuntank, Umbreon
B Dragalge, Drapion, Genesect (Burn), Machamp, Meganium, Pelipper, Regice, Shadow Magnezone,
C Key, Crustle, Excadrill, Gengar, Hypno, Lugia, Roserade, Steelix
D Aromatisse, Milotic, Seaking, Shadow Crobat, Shadow Poliwrath, Shadow Scizor, Talonflame, Tangrowth

If you use Switch Pokémon, they will be ready to cut through any opponent they face. You can design them to become a counter against any Pokémon that would be a weakness of your main Pokémon, if you wish. You want to reserve at least one, potentially two shields for this Pokémon.

A more detailed list of levels

The closer Pokémon in your list will be the last one you use. You want it to be the one with the largest volume and the best defense.

Level Pokémon
WITH Cresselia, Galarian Stunfisk, Ho-Oh, Lugia, Regice, Regirock, Registeel, Steelix
AND Alolan Muk, Blastoise, Heracross, Hitmontop, Shadow Venusaur, Skarmory, Swampert, Talonflame
B Alomomola, Escavalier, Hitmonchan, Ludicolo, Mewtwo (armored), Sirfetch’d, Typhlosion, Umbreon
C Banette, Excadrill, Gengar, Jellicent, Kingdra, Lapras, Shadow Zapdos, Uxie
D Dragalge, Lanturn, Melmetal, Pidgeot, Poliwrath, Serperior, Snorlax, Zekrom

When you use your closer Pokémon, you have no other options on the list. Because this is your last Pokémon, you want to make sure he can stand alone without the help of shields or other Pokémon on your team.
