Best Pokemon Fighters for Battle League

Unlike raids, for a pokémon to be considered good for PVP in Pokémon GO, it is necessary to analyze its own attributes, maximum CP (to decide which League they will enter) and, above all, the charged attacks available to be learned.



Keep in mind that, contrary to what happens in raids, where Fighting pokémon are great options, they don't have great relevance in any of the Battle Leagues, working only as counters for specific pokémons.
