Pokemon Go's Fighting Cup tier list will be released on August 17, 2022 ...

This is a chance to compete in Pokemon Go's Fighting Cup with your preferred Fighting-type team. You will need to think up some unique compositions in order to stand out.

Fighting Cup tier list

The Fighting Cup will be a battle in which you may only use Fighting-type Pokemon of any kind. However, you will not be permitted to use a Psychic-type Pokemon, even if they are considered a Fighting-type Pokemon.

Your Lead Pokemon is the first choice you make in every battle. It should have a healthy balance of attack power and defenses. If it has too much attack power, it will faint too soon, or you will not have enough time to replace it for one of your two other choices.

When facing an opponent, you usually swap out the Switch Pokemon for your first choice. Your Switch Pokemon will have the highest attack power, capable of defeating many foes before falling itself. Therefore, we recommend reserving at least one, sometimes two, shields for it.

The Closer Pokemon is the last Pokemon you have in your roster. It typically has the highest defenses of any Pokemon in your roster and is suitable to keep your line from the last Pokemon your opponent is using.
