Pokémon Go’s Great League Remix, initially presented in Season 7, is a spin on seasonal staple – the Great League.
The Great League Remix likewise includes a 1500 CP cap, and has one crucial distinction – a list of prohibited Pokémon which you cannot utilize in your group.
This prohibited list is made up of the most popular Pokémon utilized in the Great League, so for numerous gamers, it will require you to dig much deeper into your collection to discover some surprise gems.
Pokémon Go Great League Remix prohibited Pokémon list
The distinction in between the routine Great League and the Remix variation is a list of prohibited Pokémon. These are based upon the most popular animals to include in the Great League – requiring fitness instructors to check out something else in their groups.
The list of prohibited Pokémon in the Great League Remix are as follows:
- Raichu and Alolan Raichu
- Marowak and Alolan Marowak
- Stunfisk and Galarian Stunfisk
For those acquainted with the Great League, you’ll acknowledge a reasonable few of the above animals – and might well knock out the majority of your attempted and relied on line-up. Venusaur, Azumarill, Skarmory, Swampert… all heavy players which have actually controlled the Great League given that it’s arrival.
There are some fascinating others in the list above, such as Talonflame – possibly the March Community Day moved it into the list, particularly as a low-cost and joyful competitor for steel types. Either way – alternatives are now needed when it comes to the Remix League.
What are some alternative recommendations for the Great League Remix?
Since the above list knocks out many favourites, it’s time to dig into our collections for other creatures which perform well at that same 1500 CP cap.
As with any Go Battle League, recommendations aren’t based solely on power alone – they also have to be reactive to the meta, which often form around certain types that perform well against other creatures.
At the time of writing (the start of the Great League Remix), the meta will have yet to take shape. That said, all Go Battle leagues, regardless of CP, share some similarities in what works and what doesn’t, allowing us to get a good idea of what you can use instead.
Some of our alternative Great League Remix recommendations include:
Going with Hariyama, Altaria, Whiscash, Registeel or Deoxys (Defence). Despite the above list knocking out much of our Great League recommendations, these weren’t popular enough to feature – giving you a list of powerful creatures at lower levels to play with instead.
Of course, some of these are harder to come by; Registeel and Deoxys can only be caught during certain Legendary / Mythical events, while Altaria needs 400 Swablu candy to evolve into – which might explain their lack of popularity in the first place. But if you have them, now’s the time to roll them out. It’s possible the meta might see one or two of them become more redundant than before, but these are nonetheless great choices.
Opting for steel, fighting and dark types, which tend to do well regardless of the league. Some suggestions include Registeel and Melmetal – if you have one with a CP low enough, the latter has a speedy Thundershock charged move which is great in any team – whereas Hariyama or Machamp are low-cost but very dependable fighting types.
Digging into your Community Day Pokémon. Generally, these creatures are stronger than average when it concerns fighting prowess, and the exclusive Community Day move it can learn can make it an even more attractive prospect. In particular, the starters – from any generation – are good to try here, as they have types which work well in any league.
In the Great League Remix, grass types could take down a Whiscash and other water types easily, while fire works very well against steel. Water is less attractive – it will rarely have the advantage, but at the very same time, it’s generally resistant to most types which float to the top of the meta, too, so you could do far worse.
Again, it’s impossible to know how any new League will shake out on its debut – and remember, no single team will win every matchup – but hopefully the above serves as some useful inspiration.
The Season of Legends is here! The latest events consist of the Great League Remix and Rivals’ Week, the latter seeing the debut of Skrelp and Clauncher. With it comes a level cap increase – including the addition of XL Candy, the Legacy 40 Challenge quest and boosts to some XP sources – Platinum Medals, the arrival of Gen 6 Pokémon such as Espurr and changes to the Go Battle League
We’ve recently seen the addition of ‘Strange’ red eggs and brand-new Arlo, Cliff, Sierra and Giovanni line-ups.
