How Does Battle Party Work In Pokémon Go?

A Battle Party is basically a preset team having up to six Pokémon. Generally, Pokémon Go automatically selects these top six Pokémon but you can always customize them as per your preference.

You can create different battle parties for different battles so that you can excel in all of them like a pro. Therefore, assess the battle you are going into and select the Pokémon to have the perfect combination to win the battle.


If you are a true Pokémon Go lover, you would not accept the team that Pokémon Go selects on your behalf. Never let a machine do a human job as having the strongest Pokémon on the team is not the best strategy. You should have a perfect combination of strength and speed to win battles.

Besides, you should team your battle party based on the battles you are going for. Luckily, Pokémon Go lets you create your own or customize the automatically selected battle party.
