The Hoenn Cup


Get ready for an all new GO Battle League Challenge!

Take on a new GO Battle League Challenge! The latest GO Battle League themed Cup - the Hoenn Cup - is now available on silph.gg! With it comes a new chance to prove your skill and increase your global and local player ranking. Hoenn Cup tournaments will follow the same basic rules as all Silph Arena Cups, but with a special twist! Here’s what you need to know:

What Is The Hoenn Cup?

The Hoenn Cup is a unique format played during the Season 13 of GO battle League. During this time (February 17th - February 28th), local Silph League communities host and record a special tournament using the free Silph.gg tools. Wins and losses in this local tournament affect your player rank on local and global leaderboards, and can help you progress towards higher player tiers!

All players are welcome to compete, whether it’s your first tournament or your hundredth! Find a local tournament near you on the Tournament Map!

Hoenn Cup Rules

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

  • Team of 6: 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.
  • Great League: Matches are played in Great League: only Pokemon up to 1500 CP are permitted in the Cup.
  • Hoenn Pokémon Only: Only Pokémon with a Pokédex number between #252 and #386 are allowed in the Hoenn Cup (including Alolan, Galarian, and Husiuan forms).
  • Eligible List: What follows is the official list of exactly which species are permitted for use in the Hoenn Cup:
