Slaking and Mewtwo in Pokemon Go

CP is usually the easiest way to evaluate combat abilities in Pokemon Go. From Mega Rayquaza and Primal Groudon to Slaking and Mewtwo, these are the best picks in Pokemon Go based on CP.

CP is easily one of the most important mechanics in Pokemon Go. It is the eligibility criteria for participation in the Go Battle League and even when deciding teams for Raids and Gym Battles, picking the Pokemon with the highest CP (and type advantages, of course) is recommended.

From spending Stardust to Mega Evolutions, there are plenty of ways to increase the CP of your mons, and if you’re curious about their maximum potential, here’s a list of the Pokemon with the highest CP in Pokemon Go.

What is the highest CP in Pokemon Go?

The highest attainable CP in Pokemon Go is 6672 and you can achieve this by turning Groudon and Kyogre into Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre through Primal Reversion. However, like mega evolutions, Primal Reversions are temporary in the game and when removed, the highest attainable CP is 5010 which belongs to Slaking.
