The PvP mode within Niantic’s Pokémon Go is pretty challenging. Players can take part in the Battle League and its three tiers of play to prove who has the most skill as a Trainer. The tiers all have different rules, such as the Great League only permitting Pokémon with 1,500 CP or lower, and the Ultra League goes up to 2,500. There’s a step beyond that though, with the unlocked Master League.
Pokémon Go’s season two will wrap soon withe the beginning of the Master League. No restrictions here, as CP limits are negated and access to any extraordinarily powerful legendary Pokémon is allowed. But there’s a step beyond that, the newly revealed Pokémon Go Premier League.
The Master League wraps up the main season, but that’s not all Niantic has in store for Trainers. The player base can also enjoy taking part in the Premier Cup, the true cream of the crop. The best Trainers from within the other leagues can compete without CP limits, so bring your best monsters to these brawls. The only real restriction is that legendary or mythical Pokémon will still be locked out. Other than that, you’re free to use the best of what you have to prove who is the truly best trainer.
The Premier Cup is due to being at the end of this season, and will likely become a fixture within the future runs of PvP in the game. AS of now the Premier Cup is set to take place at the same time as the Master League. So those looking to move beyond the CP limits can jump straight in when that begins.
With the wrap of each season, featuring a full rotation of all three Leagues, the Pokémon Go Premier League will transition into the Premier Cup. Within that new mode, the best of the best can compete for various special prizes.
