Pokemon GO Best Holiday Cup Pokemon/Team - GBL Season 10

December 15, 2021

To keep Pokemon GO’s GO Battle League fresh, Niantic will often throw an exciting cup into the mix.

The latest of these is the rather fitting Holiday Cup, which sees players only able to use Electric, Flying, Ghost, Grass, Ice and Normal-type Pokemon up to 1500 CP. Of course, this shakes up the meta.

So to help you out, here are the best Pokemon GO Holiday Cup Pokemon and team choices for the GO Battle League Season 10.
