Hi! With the upcoming MyStERy cUP I was just wondering what you all’s favorite and least favorite cups were! Here’s mine in order of my least liked to my favorite
Halloween/Flying - I actually didn’t play these as I wasn’t really feeling Pokémon Go at the time. I’m kickin myself for missing Halloween Cup it looked like a lot of fun. The flying cup looked pretty meh.
Little cup - The worst of the cups IMO. It was fun for a bit. There was an inherent unbalance with Bronzor. The plus side is it was cheap to play and if you didn’t play bronzor all your games went very quick!
Catch cup - a bizarre premise and it came at weird time. Everyone was locked down? Tell them to go catch Pokémon! The more you invest the better you do, but rating means nothing! I invested fairly heavily in this one and had a good time with it. I carried through a Snorlax from Kanto Cup and later put it up to UL so it didn’t feel like a waste.
Holiday Cup - maybe someone can help me with this one, but something wasn’t right about this cup and I can’t place what it was. I essentially stood still in this cup despite playing most of my battles. The meta was just pretty random and it felt like grass was set up for failure right from the start. Still a fun cup that catered to a lot of underused Pokémon.
Kanto Cup - the gold standard for me. When it came out everyone was on hypno and Awak and all the stuff PvPoke said was good, and then as it progressed people learned how easy that stuff was to counter and suddenly stuff like rapidash and Electrode were every bit as popular! My only complaint is the lack of steel types and poison types led to charmers being a little to consistent and as well A-muk was just an insanely safe pick no one could ever really stay off of.
I hope they continue doing these! They are the best part of GBL!
