Pokémon GO Color Cup Best Team

Niantic, Pokémon Company

The Color Cup in Pokémon GO presents a unique challenge for players planning to tackle it and be the best in this specific leg of the Rising Heroes season's competitive scene.

What makes this event so unique is that while players can only use Pokémon under 1,500 CP, in addition, these Pokémon must either be Fire-, Water-, Grass- or Electric-type, whether it be their first typing or second, they will still be eligible as long as one of those types apply to them.

Even though it may appear that Electric-types have the advantage in this scenario, being that their only weakness is Ground-type moves and Pokémon, this is not entirely true. Some other Pokémon who may be entered into the cup may have this as their secondary, or primary, typing, and thus Electric-types are just as in danger as Fire-types, who are weak to Water-types, Water- types who are weak to both Electric- and Grass-types and Grass-types who are weak to Fire-types.
