Best Teams in Pokemon GO Ultra Leage in Pokemon GO ...

The Ultra League in Pokemon GO is a bit of a challenge to teambuild for. The Pokemon available are a strange amalgamation of lower-level threats from the Master League and the MVPs of the Great League. As it turns out, mixing these two groups together gives trainers a large pool of Pokemon that can cover each other's weaknesses.

Which teams should trainers build for Ultra League?

  • Lead: Cresselia
  • Safe Swap: Registeel
  • Closer: Scrafty

Cresselia has one of the most extensive defensive walls around. Giratina and Trevenant are the only threats it needs to fear, both of which die to a Foul Play from Scrafty. Registeel can also bait in opposing Dark-types, and once they are dealt with, Scrafty is usually free to sweep.

  • Lead: Tapu Fini
  • Safe Swap: Giratina
  • Closer: Regeisteel

Giratina should be able to overcome a minor chip damage when these three Pokemon join together to form what is called a fantasy core.

  • Lead: Swampert
  • Safe Swap: Trevenant
  • Closer: Talonflame

The Fire Pokemon has a second special core: the Fire Water Grass core, which beats the Water Pokemon while retaining its Electric weakness thanks to its Grass-type partner. Swampert isn't special, though, because it's hard to find better responses to Grass-types than Trevenant and Talonflame.

  • Lead: Galarian Stunfisk
  • Safe Swap: Giratina
  • Closer: Virizion

This team is excellent at defying off opposing Charm spammers off guard. Some teams like to lead with their Togekiss or Gardevoir, and Galarian Stunfisk hard counters them both. If the opponent plays a little less passive with their Fairy, Giratina can draw it out. After it's gone, Virizion should be free to clean up.

  • Lead: Giratina
  • Safe Swap: Registeel
  • Closer: Obstagoon

Obstagoon is another Pokemon that can do massive damage once the opposing Fairy is gone. Giratina is leading the way in this regard; if it can at least get a couple of shields off the Fairy, Registeel can come in and take care of the job.
