These Pokemon Are Banned From Pokemon GO Season 8

Pokemon GO Season 8 kicked off on May 28, resetting the competitive rankings and adding a bunch of new and exciting rewards to the mix. But that's not all it changed. With a new Pokemon GO competitive season comes a fresh list of Season 8 banned Pokemon for the Season 8 Remix leagues.


Any Pokemon powerful enough to land in the Top 20 amongst the game's highest-ranking players of each league will be ineligible to fight in the next season. The shakeup ensures each season doesn't play out exactly the same way with the same players continuing to dominate the leaderboards.

Before you pick and train your dream Season 8 roster, be sure to read up on which Pokemon are banned in the new Season 8 Remix leagues.
