Do you want to compete in the Little Jungle Cup in Pokemon GO this season? Here's how to do it.

Pokemon GO Battle Season 9 is full of side competitions and tournaments trainers can enter while they're working through each tier of the league. During the Master League, trainers will be able to compete in the Little Jungle Cup—a bit contradictory, considering that the Master League has no CP limit and the "Little" cups tend to have the lowest.

Below, we've explained everything trainers need to know in order to compete in the Little Jungle Cup.

Pokemon GO Battle League: Little Jungle Cup Explained

The Little Jungle Cup will run during the first leg of the Master League in Season 9. It kicks off on Sept. 27 and finishes up on Oct. 11.

Like other "Little" cups, trainers will need to look through their weakest and lowest CP Pokemon in order to find the best competitors—the diamonds in the rough. They will also be subject to the "jungle" themed typing.

In order to enter the tournament, trainers must pick Pokemon under 500 CP. They do not need to be first-forms or be capable of evolution—meaning advanced evolutions are eligible to play. However, they do need to be one of the following types:

  • Grass
  • Normal
  • Electric
  • Poison
  • Ground
  • Flying
  • Bug
  • Dark

Additionally, Shuckle and Smeargle are banned from the competition.
