Pokémon GO Element Cup Remix: Little Edition, strategies, top picks, and tips

The Element Cup Remix – Little Edition, a specialized tournament format within Pokémon GO’s Battle League, is part of the Adventures Abound season that will conclude on September 15, 2023.

This format presents an exclusive set of rules and constraints that challenge both novice and veteran Trainers to adapt their strategies. Given that the tournament will be drawing to a close at the end of the week, this article aims to offer comprehensive insights into optimizing your game for this unique competitive environment.

You won’t be battling with your usual arsenal here. The rules are unique and challenge you to think outside the box. You’re limited to Pokémon with no more than 500 CP, and only those who haven’t evolved can join the battle. On top of that, only Fire, Grass, and Water types can participate. As for the ‘Remix’ aspect, it’s introducing a twist by sidelining usual suspects like Chinchou, Cottonee, Ducklett, and Salandit.

Best Starting Pokémon: Your Key to Early Dominance

You want Pokémon that can put the pressure on your rivals from the word ‘go’. Here’s a list to help you score early wins or set up some killer counterplays.

  • Dewpider with Bug Bite, Mirror Coat, and Bubble Beam
  • Oddish and its Shadow version using Razor Leaf, Sludge Bomb, and Seed Bomb
  • Litwick mastering Ember, Mystical Fire, and Flame Charge
  • Chikorita in both forms (Standard and Shadow) wielding Vine Whip, Body Slam, and Grass Knot
  • Seel, a classic choice with Lick, Aqua Tail, and Icy Win

The Remix Meta
