Trainers in Pokemon GO are hard at work climbing up the leagues and becoming the very best, and the three usual cups are here for many to test their might. However, there’s a new cup for beginners to take on, so here’s the best team for the Little Jungle Cup.

Like the Little Cup, the Little Jungle Cup is a competition that only allows Pokemon with a maximum of 500 CP. However, the Jungle twist means that only Normal, Grass, Electric, Poison, Ground, Flying, Bug and Dark-types are allowed to play. While the limits imposed on players may seem a little menacing, there are Pokemon a trainer can use that accommodates for these restrictions quite nicely. 

Best Pokemon for Little Jungle Cup: Who to Choose

Since this is a Little Cup, the typical high-tier Pokemon won't be usable here, and things are especially restrictive with the type limits. But the following Pokemon, if utilized and built properly, could sweep anyone that dares come across them:

  • Skarmory
  • Wigglytuff
  • Cottonee
  • Galarian Stunfisk
  • Pyroar

These Pokemon in particular are important because they possess typings that have banned types. Fairy is considered to be one of the most overpowered types in the entire series, and it’s worth its weight in gold in these cups. With these Pokemon, preform moves that will be uncommon in these competitions, and have a good counter for nearly anything that’s in the way.

The Little Jungle Cup will run until Oct. 11.
