Pokémon GO Little Jungle Cup Remix – Best Pokémon & Counters

Can you outlast the competition?

Niantic has announced the Little Jungle Cup Remix in Pokémon GO. The Battle League Cup will run from now until October 112022. This Battle League Cup takes place during the Season of Light event. The details of this Cup can be a bit confusing, especially for players that don't keep up with the different events in Battle League. The Little Jungle Cup gets its name from the Little Cup, which requires players to use only Pokémon under 500 CP. The Little Jungle Cup keeps this requirement but will also narrow the field of prospective fighters down to NormalElectricGroundPoisonGrassBugDark, or Flying-type Pokémon. This isn't a major issue, though, because you can find some of the best fighters in the game within these typings.
