Registration for the Little Cup Online Competition begins Thursday, May 14, 2015, at 00:00 UTC through Thursday, May 21, 2015, at 23:59 UTC.

The Little Cup Online Competition features rules designed for quick and exciting battles that are easy for anyone to play. You can’t use any Pokémon that have evolved or are incapable of evolving (Mega Evolution does not count as having an Evolution). For example, you can use Charmander, but not Charmeleon or Charizard. And you can’t use Kangaskhan because it doesn’t evolve into any other Pokémon. What’s more, all Pokémon will be set to Level 5 for the duration of the battle!
