The Great League Remix is the latest cup added in Pokemon GO, and is a new twist on the standard Great League. The meta in the Pokemon GO Battle League will be shaken up for the next couple of weeks.

From April 12 to April 26, the Great League Remix will run alongside the standard Great League in Pokemon GO. Both are still considered a part of ranked play for any players at rank 20 or higher, unlike the season-ending Kanto Cup. But players may want to focus on the remix if they want to switch things up.

In the Great League Remix, the new ruleset is rather simple but dramatic; none of the most common Pokemon in the league are allowed. A list of the 10 most used Pokemon in the Great League was released, and all of them are banned from use in the remix. That means players need to look further into their Pokemon storage for a different team, especially at higher ranks.

The Great League Remix is the same as the standard in every other way. That includes using Pokemon that are no higher in CP than 1,500. Aside from the bans, anything else is fair game. But players need to know which Pokemon are off-limits.

10 Pokemon banned in the Great League

  1. Venusaur
  2. Raichu and Alolan Raichu
  3. Marowak and Alolan Marowak
  4. Azumarill
  5. Umbreon
  6. Skarmory
  7. Swampert
  8. Galvantula
  9. Stunfisk and Galarian Stunfisk
  10. Talonflame

Some of the Pokemon that are considered a bit lower than top tier will shine in the Great League Remix, and Pokemon that were held back by top picks will as well. Some Pokemon that players should expect to see are Medicham, Bastiodon, Hypno, and Wigglytuff.

As players get used to the Great League Remix, the best teams will continue to shake up. But for the time being, players should enjoy the new meta changes while they last.
