Now that February 2, 2023, has arrived, Pokemon GO trainers can participate in the returning Ultra Premier PvP competition. This player-versus-player format operates largely similar to Ultra League with the same 2,500 CP cap. However, legendary/mythic Pokemon are disallowed here, and any creatures boosted by XL Candies cannot be used either. Since team formulation is so vital to success in PvP, it’s not a bad time to examine some of the top picks and teams. When building any competitive PvP team for Pokemon GO, it’s best to examine each member of the party based on what role they perform well in. This tends to lead Pocket Monsters to fall into three different categories: leads, switches, and closers. One recommended team for tackling Pokemon GO’s Ultra Premier is Shadow Charizard as the lead, Bewear as the switch and Hariyama as the closer. Shadow Charizard offers great damage thanks to its Shadow form boost and its move combination of Wing Attack, Blast Burn, and Dragon Claw gives it the ability to take on opponents in several different type matchups. Bewear is a Normal/Fighting-type in Pokemon GO with an intriguing elemental type combination as well as plenty of bulk. Hariyama is well-known for its exceptional durability while still being able to dish out plenty of damage.
