The Pokémon GO Battle League is heading into the back half of Season 8 and it’s time for Ultra League and Ultra League Remix to start. Coming later today, these two playlists have players do battle with their best teams under 2500 CP. While players should be pretty familiar with standard Ultra League, the Remix form offers new challenges that change up the meta and tier lists. But we’re here to help you form the best Ultra League and Ultra League Remix teams in July and August 2021 for Pokémon GO.

The Best Ultra League Team in July and August 2021

The Ultra League rankings haven’t changed too much since players got to tackle this league back in June 2021. But you always want to stay ahead of the Pokémon GO PvP meta whenever possible. So we’ve taken last month’s best Ultra League team rankings and updated them while adding a few more options to choose from.

How we suggest you do this is to check out the chart below, which ranks all of the best Ultra League Pokémon and offers advice on what they should be used against. We also show what they are weak to so you can avoid that. Just pick a couple of these to make sure you have a strong Ultra League team and fill in the other Pokémon or two based on what your choices work well and are weak against.

Note: We tag any that would not appear on the list without the use of Candy XL to power them up with (XL). If you don’t have Candy XL then you might need to look for alternatives. You always want your Ultra League Pokémon to be as close to 2500 CP as possible, and for the best results they should have low Attack IV with high Defense and HP.

So those are the Pokémon we suggest you use when forming the best Ultra League team in Pokémon GO. But if you want to spice things up there is the new Remix category, which excludes some of these species from your teams.
