Sure, Pokemon Go is cute, fun, and lovely, but if you really have a taste for competition, the Kanto Cup is the best!Â
This unique competition brings trainers into the scene and allows them to max their teams and flex their skills. We’ve compiled a list with some of the best tips and tricks, best ‘mon, CP limit, and, of course, rules.

The new Kanto Cup is available from May 24 (1 PM PST/ 4 PM EST/ 8 PM BST) to May 31 (1 PM PST/ 4 PM EST/ 8 PM BST).
This season the competition will be unranked so that you can be more creative and use some new strategies and tactics. How cool is that?
Kanto Cup’s Rules
The Kanto Cup features the original Gen 1 Pokemon and comes with a special set of rules, as follows:
- Only ‘mon with a Pokedex number from 1 to 51 can participate;

Remember that the competition can be pretty tough, and playing by the rules is the only way you can prove your skills.
