The Little Jungle Cup Remix is the latest themed cup to arrive in the Pokemon Go Battle League, so we’ve put together some of the best teams and Pokemon you can use to get ahead.

While the main stars of the Pokemon Go Battle League are the Great League, Ultra League, and Master League, Niantic regularly adds themed or remixed cups to give dedicated trainers a fresh challenge.

To kick off Season 12 of the Go Battle League, players will be able to take on the Little Jungle Cup Remix, which uses the traditional Little Jungle Cup ruleset but bans the most popular Pokemon from being used.

Best team for the Little Jungle Cup Remix in Pokemon Go

One of the best teams for the Little Jungle Cup Remix is Scrafty, Galarian Stunfisk, and Wigglytuff. These are three of the strongest eligible Pokemon and should offer coverage against most opponents.

We’ve gone into more detail on some of the best Pokemon to use for this Pokemon Go Battle League cup below. You’ll also find details of their weaknesses, resistances, and the best movesets to teach them.

Best Pokemon for the Little Jungle Cup Remix

Galarian Stunfisk

  • Fast Move: Mud Shot
  • Charged Moves: Rock Slide and Earthquake
  • Resistances: Poison, Rock, Electric, Fairy, Flying, Bug, Steel, Normal, Psychic, and Dragon
  • Weaknesses: Fire, Water, Ground, and Fighting

Galarian Stunfisk is a well-known champion in the Great League, but if you’ve got one under 500 CP, it’s also top-tier in the Little Jungle Cup Remix. Mud Shot has good energy gain, which might let you break out a Charged Move like Rock Slide or Earthquake if you’re lucky.

Wigglytuff

  • Fast Move: Charm
  • Charged Moves: Ice Beam and Play Rough
  • Resistances: Dragon, Bug, Dark, and Ghost
  • Weaknesses: Steel and Poison

Wigglytuff is known for being incredibly tanky, which is a great advantage when the max CP limit is so low in the Little Jungle Cup Remix. Charm is a brilliant STAB Fast Move, while the Charged Move Ice Beam offers some extra coverage if you get a chance to use it.

Steelix

  • Fast Move: Dragon Tail
  • Charged Moves: Psychic Fangs and Crunch
  • Resistances: Bug, Dragon, Electric, Fairy, Flying, Normal, Poison, Psychic, Rock, and Steel
  • Weaknesses: Fighting, Fire, Ground, and Water

Another tanky Pokemon you can use for the Little Jungle Cup Remix is Steelix. It has very high bulk and 10 type resistances, which makes it a nightmare to get rid of. The addition of the Charged Move Psychic Fangs this season also gives it a valuable extra coverage option.

Scrafty

  • Fast Move: Counter
  • Charged Moves: Foul Play and Power-Up Punch
  • Resistances: Dark, Ghost, Psychic, and Rock
  • Weaknesses: Fairy, Fighting, and Flying

Scrafty is a standout in the Little Jungle Cup Remix, where it has key wins over Galarian Stunfisk, Swinub, Abomasnow, and plenty more. Counter is one of the best Fast Moves of all time, so make sure you have it, while Foul Play and Power-Up Punch are two great STAB Charged Moves.

Altaria

  • Fast Move: Dragon Breath
  • Charged Moves: Sky Attack and Moonblast
  • Resistances: Fighting, Water, Bug, Fire, Grass, and Ground
  • Weaknesses: Ice, Fairy, Dragon, and Rock

Altaria is one of the most time-consuming evolutions in Pokemon Go, requiring 400 Candy. That makes it a hard sell, but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s a top choice for the Little Jungle Cup Remix with the brilliant Dragon Breath as a Fast Move and Sky Attack as a Charged Move.

The most difficult part of the Little Jungle Cup Remix will be finding these Pokemon under the 500 CP entry restriction. Remember you can always check out PvPoke for some other recommendations on the best-performing Pokemon in this cup.
