Pokemon GO Premier Cup is the newest revolution in trainer vs. trainer competitive content.

Niantic Labs has implemented a new way to battle other trainers in Pokemon GO—the Pokemon GO Premier Cup. It will be run alongside the usual modes in the GO Battle League with no CP cap or limitations. There is one bit of criteria separating it from the rest: no mythical or legendary Pokemon allowed.

The Premier Cup was first meant to launch on June 15. Although, because of complications likely from the COVID-19 pandemic, the tournament was delayed and pushed back to July 6 as the starting date. It will be available through to July 27.

The rules are simple. First, each competitor must create a team of six Pokemon and register them before the competition begins. Second, the matches will be played using Master League rules with no CP cap. Third, no legendary or mythical Pokemon are allowed entry. Fourth, no duplicates should be placed on the same team.

Unsurprisingly, a large portion of the highest CP Pokemon available are legendaries, so this tournament will look quite different.

Trainers looking to register for the tournament should consult with their local leaders using the tournament map here. Tournaments can be put together by anyone recognized as a Tournament Admin between the starting and ending dates.
