Pokemon GO Willpower Cup Best Pokemon

The best Pokemon for your Willpower Cup team in Pokemon GO need to meet two requirements. First off, they have to be at 1500 CP or below to enter. Secondly, only Fighting-, Psychic-, and Dark-type Pokemon can participate. That is, unless they’re Gardevoir. For some reason, they’ve banned Gardevoir from fighting in this cup. With all of that in mind, here’s a list of Pokemon that should prove useful in the Willpower Cup, in no particular order.

  • Mandibuzz with Air Slash and Aerial Ace or Foul Play
  • Alolan Raichu with Volt Switch and Wild Charge or Thunder Punch
  • Umbreon with Snarl and Foul Play
  • Sableye with Shadow Claw and Foul Play
  • Cresselia with Psycho Cut and Moonblast
  • Pawniard with Fury Cutter and Night Slash or Iron Head
  • Hisuian Qwilfish with Poison Jab and Aqua Tail or Shadow Ball
  • Sneasler with Shadow Claw and Close Combat or X-Scissor
  • Zweilous with Dragon Breath and Body Slam or Dark Pulse
  • Victini with Quick Attack and V-Create or Overheat
  • Overqwil with Poison Jab and Aqua or Shadow Ball
  • Wobbuffet (regular or Shadow) with Charm and Mirror Coat

Best Team for Willpower Cup in Pokemon GO

The best team for the Pokemon GO Willpower Cup should ideally have several different types of Pokemon (at least two). That way, you can deal different types of damage while being able to swap Pokemon out when you need different types of resistances. Personally, I would go with the combination of Mandibuzz, Alolan Raichu and Cresselia, for example. But, of course, this is all up to your personal preferences and the Pokemon you have in your storage. So, mix and match as best as you can.
