After completing the Main Story, you can rematch the Champion Cup as many times as you would like. This time around, you can select which opponents will be added to the tournament or if you would prefer a random set of foes. There are twenty-six trainers you can face this time around, including Hop
, the eight Gym Leaders, and fifteen Random Pokemon Trainers. Unlike the Random Pokemon Trainers, the Gym Leaders and other Main Characters have stronger Pokemon and each have the ability to Dynamax
one of their Pokemon.
Despite now wanting to become a Pokemon Professor
is one of the trainers you can face when rematching the Champion Cup. Hop continues to have a balanced Pokemon Team
of varying types, now using the Legendary Pokemon he captured at the end of the Post Game
Story. Depending on what Starter
Pokemon you chose and what version of the game you are playing, Hop's team will vary during this battle.
He will use Dubwool, Snorlax, Rillaboom
, and Zacian
when in battle. All of Hop
's Pokemon will be between Levels 68-70 (making his team one of the toughest in The Galar Region
), and he'll always Gigantamax
his Corviknight. Because of this, you will need a couple of different Pokemon to make defeating Hop a breeze: a Fighting Type Pokemon for his Dubwool and Snorlax, a Fire Type Pokemon for his Legendary Pokemon and Gigantamax Corviknight, and your Starter to match up well against his Starter.
After defeating both the Isle of Armor
and Crown Tundra
DLC Packages, Hop
's Champion Cup Rematch Pokemon Team
will have changed slightly. All of his Pokemon will now be at higher levels.
