Pokemon Go Battle League Love Cup: Everything You Need to Know
Celebrate Valentine's Day by competing in themed trainer battles.
Valentine’s Day is coming soon, and Pokemon Go will celebrate the holiday with a love-themed Cup in the Go Battle League.
The Love Cup will run from February 8 at 1 p.m. PT until February 15 at 1 p.m. PT.
This Love Cup will have a 1,500 CP limit, and only certain Pokemon will be able to participate (no Legendary or Mythical Pokemon will be allowed). Many (but not all) of the eligible Pokemon are pink or red, which fits the Valentine’s Day theme.
Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, shared the full list of eligible Pokemon in a news post:
"Here’s a list of Pokémon that are eligible for the Love Cup: Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard, Vileplume, Paras, Parasect, Krabby, Kingler, Voltorb, Electrode, Goldeen, Seaking, Jynx, Magmar, Magikarp, Flareon, Ledyba, Ledian, Ariados, Yanma, Scizor, Slugma, Magcargo, Octillery, Delibird, Porygon2, Magby, Torchic, Combusken, Blaziken, Wurmple, Medicham, Carvanha, Camerupt, Solrock, Corphish, Crawdaunt, Kricketot, Kricketune, Trash Cloak Burmy, Trash Cloak Wormadam, Magmortar, Porygon-Z, Wash Rotom, Tepig, Pignite, Emboar, Pansear, Simisear, Throh, Venipede, Scolipede, Krookodile, Darumaka, Darmanitan, Dwebble, Crustle, Autumn Form Deerling, Spring Form Deerling, Shelmet, Accelgor, Pawniard, Bisharp, Braviary, Heatmor, Fennekin, Braixen, Delphox, Fletchling, Fletchinder, Talonflame, Clefairy, Clefable, Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff, Slowpoke, Slowbro, Exeggcute, Lickitung, Happiny, Chansey, Mr. Mime, Mime Jr., Porygon, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Flaaffy, Hoppip, Slowking, Snubbull, Corsola, Smoochum, Miltank, Blissey, Whismur, Skitty, Milotic, Gorebyss, Luvdisc, Cherubi, Sunny Form Cherrim, Lickilicky, Audino, Alomomola, and Scrafty."
