Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go are celebrating the Holiday Season with a new Holiday Cup 2021, and this time you’ll have to use specific Pokemon types with 1,500 Max CP per Pokemon.
As part of the holiday celebrations, Niantic has launched the Holiday Cup with a few new restrictions, something that makes the whole PvP battles more exciting.
Starting today, December 16, 2021, until December 31, 2021, players will have a chance to participate in the Pokemon Go Holiday Cup. Only Normal-, Grass-, Electric-, Ice-, Flying- and Ghost-type Pokemon are allowed, with Max CP per Pokemon: 1,500 CP.
That said, as long as your Pokemon Go team meets these requirements, you can participate in the competition. Many players are wondering what’s the best Pokemon team to use for the Holiday Cup 2021, and thanks to the Pokemon Go community, we might have the best teams lineups.
Keep in mind that this is based on our opinions, and you can choose different Pokemon if you like.
