The Weather Cup will put your best Pokémon to the test in Pokémon Go. You need to create a unique team of three Pokémon to use against a chance so that you can pack some unique combinations into a limited cup. You can’t use all of the available Pokémon in the game, so it’s important to think about your options. This guide covers some of the best Pokémon teams to use in the Weather Cup in Pokémon Go.
The Best Pokémon Teams in the Weather Cup
The Weather Cup will take place from September 15 to 22. You can use any Pokémon as long as they are Fire, Ice, Rock, or Water type, and they cannot exceed 2500 CP.

Abomasnow, Politoed and Jellicent
This first team will use Abomasnow as the main Pokemon. While very weak against Fire-type attacks, Abomasnow is an excellent option for this league cup, and we recommend using Politoed and Jellicent on this team. Politoed is a solid Water and Ground type Pokémon, and Jellicent is an all-rounder Water and Ghost type, ideal for being the Closing Pokémon for this team.
- Abomasnow: powder snow (fast movement), energy ball and weather ball (ice type)
- Politoed: Mud Shot (fast movement), Weather Ball (water type) and Earthquake
- Jellicent: Hex (fast movement), Bubble Beam and Shadow Ball
Cradily, Swampert and Kingdra
The next combination we want to highlight is Cradily, probably the best Pokémon for any player to use in this competition. Cradily will swing out in these fights with an incredible moveset, but it’s weak against Bug and Ice-type attacks, which you’ll want to watch out for and protect against. You want to make sure you get Swampert and Kingdra for this team.
- Cradily: Bullet Seed (fast movement), Stone Edge and Grass Knot
- Swampert: Mud Shot (fast movement), Hydro Cannon and Earthquake
- Kingdra: Dragon Breath (fast movement), Outrage and Octazooka
Tentacruel, Lanturn and Walrein
For this next combination, we have Tentacruel as the main Pokemon. It is a defensive Pokéon that can use its size to bully most opponents, with excellent charged attacks that defuse opponents. When you’re ready to switch, you can use Lanturn, a perfect Water and Electric type Pokémon to use in the Weather Cup, and Walrein, a Water and Ice type that many players are probably familiar with in the Great and Ultra Leagues .
- Tentacruel: Poison Jab (fast movement), Acid Spray and Scald
- Lanturn: Spark (fast movement), Surf and Thunderbolt
- Walrein: Powder Snow (Fast Movement), Icicle Spear and Earthquake
Ludicolo, Tapu Fini and Alolan Sandslash
Our next team will use Ludicolo, a Water and Grass type. While he has access to Water-type moves, Ludicolo’s moveset gives him enough flexibility to use Grass-type attacks, perfect for countering Water or Rock-types he’s fighting. To back it up, we recommend using the legendary Tapu Fini and Alolan Sandslash.
- Ludicolo: Razor Leaf (fast movement), Leaf Storm and Ice Beam
- Tapu Fini: Water Gun (fast movement), Surf and Moonblast
- Alolan Sandslash: Shadow Claw (fast move), Ice Punch and Bulldoze
Samurott, Seismitoad and Regice
Our final team consists of Samurott, Seismitoad and the legendary Ice-type Regice. Samurott will be your main Pokemon, able to use multiple Bug-type moves in his moveset. For the Switch Pokémon, you’ll want to use Seismitoad, which uses Ground- and Poison-type attacks. Finally, we have Regice, who will bring Electric and Ice type moves to this team and will be the most robust of the trio.
- Samurott: Fury Cutter (fast movement), Megahorn and Hydro Cannon
- Seismitoad: Mud Shot (fast movement), Earth Power and Sludge Bomb
- Regice: Lock On (fast movement), Thunder and Blizzard
