What Are The Rules of The Kanto Cup?

The Kanto Cup won the players’ choice vote that took place through November which means the following rules are active:

  • Pokedex number must be between 001 and 151
  • Max CP = 1,500

What this does mean, however, is that Pokemon with regional variants are still eligible.
