NJ Silph Arena - Season 2 Cup Rules

NJ Silph Arena Ferocious Cup Rules

The Ferocious Cup has a few special rules (designed to provide added challenge and fun) that differ from standard PvP combat in Pokemon GO:

  • Competitors will bring a team of 6 Pokemon (and register them before the tournament begins). All battle parties used must be comprised of these 6 Pokemon.
  • Matches are played in Great League: only Pokemon up to 1500 CP are permitted in the Cup.
  • Rather than being restricted to specific Pokemon Types, the Ferocious Cup is limited to a selection of land-based "beast" Pokemon inspired by the fearsome beasts that rule the land. The species whitelist features a selection of 130 land mammals and reptiles that have been analyzed and selected for their ability to create a new challenging meta.  
  • Only one of each Pokemon species is permitted on your team of 6. (No species duplicates!) However, Pokemon forms with different typings are permitted on the same team.
  • Arena Rules will be followed in all other particulars.
