2018 Pokés

Bulbasaur Bulbasaur
“VENUSAUR is one of the most powerful and popular grass-types, but is heavily reliant on having Frenzy Plant for Grass damage, alongside Sludge Bomb for coverage.” – Adelli0n
Sludge Bomb Frenzy Plant* 562CP or Lower 100% PvP IV 0/14/11 Bulbasaur obtained from raids or eggs will be too high level for Great League, so try to get your hands on one in advance! – TSR
Charmander Charmander
“CHARIZARD provides a very powerful shield breaker with access to Dragon Claw, but requires Blast Burn for high fire damage.” – Adelli0n
Dragon Claw Blast Burn* 455CP or Lower 100% PvP IV 0/15/13 Charmander obtained from raids or eggs will be too high level for Great League, so try to get your hands on one in advance! – TSR
Charmander Chikorita
“MEGANIUM boasts some of the strongest defenses of any Grass-type, and has Earthquake for coverage with Frenzy Plant. May be usurped in the pure Grass field by Serperio in the future.” – Adelli0n
Earthquake Frenzy Plant* 524CP or Lower 100% PvP IV 0/10/15
Eevee Eevee
“Vital for coverage for UMBREON/VAPOREON and useful for the other Eeveelutions as well, who have yet to shine in any Silph metas. A must-have for each Eeveelution.” – Adelli0n
Last Resort* 457CP or Lower* 100% PvP IV Umbreon 0/15/15 Flareon 0/15/13 Vaporeon 1/15/15 Leafeon 1/15/14 *probable range, based on Espeon Lvl 17.5 (rank 1: 0/15/15) – other Eeveelutions will have slightly higher maximums. Jolteon, Glaceon and Espeon have the worst defenses, making them least viable for PvP in general and why they are not listed. – Adelli0n

2019 Pokés

Mudkip
Mudkip
“Generally speaking SWAMPERT is a solid pick for Great League, with well-rounded stats, a single weakness to Grass-type attacks (which it’s doubly weak to), and an excellent moveset partly thanks to Mudkip’s Community Day.” – GamePress
Mud Shot
Hydro Cannon*
517CP or Lower
100% PvP IV
0/14/14

Mudkip obtained from raids or eggs will be too high level for Great League, so try to get your hands on one in advance! – TSR

Torchic
Torchic

“While an argument can be made for BLAZIKEN’S best fire type charged move being Blaze Kick, Blast Burn is a move that does a significant amount of damage and is a good addition to the move pool.” TSR

Counter/Blaze Kick
Blast Burn*
523CP or Lower
100% PvP IV
1/15/15
“Torchic obtained from raids or eggs may be too high level for Great League, so try to get your hands on one in advance!” – TSR
Ralts
Ralts

“GALLADE/GARDEVOIR, are both a little squishy in Great League PvP, but Synchronoise provides them with a psychic-type attack that charges a little faster than Galade’s previous move of Psychic and costs less than Gardevoir’s Ghost-type move.” – TSR

Mud Shot
Earth Power*
576CP or Lower
100% PvP IV
0/15/9
“Ralts obtained from raids or eggs will be too high level for Great League, so try to get your hands on one in advance!” – TSR
Trapinch
Trapinch
“Thanks to its STAB ground-type moves, FLYGON does very well against the many steel-types lurking within the Great League. Its secondary dragon-typing also means that the grass- and water-types commonly used to beat fellow ground- types don’t always work.” – GOHub
Mud Shot
Earth Power*
576CP or Lower
100% PvP IV
0/15/9
“Get a Flygon with Earth Power. Currently, Dragon Claw is better, but you never know!” – KevKillerke
