Pokemon Masters Tier List: Battle Role Guide

Pokemon Masters EX is a mobile spin-off game of the well-loved Pokemon series. Released in August 2019, the game has since garnered 22 million unique downloads and still has an active gaming community. Unlike traditional Pokemon games, Pokemon Masters EX features a unique gameplay format.

Players compete in 3v3 battles, with each unit being composed of a trainer and a Pokemon. Because each playable character has their own set of active and passive skills, the goal is to mix and match trainers and Pokemon to find the best possible sync pair. And because there are different types of sync pairs, this Pokemon Masters Tier List will be categorizing the best striker, tech, and support sync pair.

It’s also necessary to highlight the importance of sync pairs.

Read on to see our top picks for Pokemon Masters EX sync pairs!

POKEMON MASTERS TIER LIST

With 65 trainers (including your character) and 65 unique Pokemon, there are thousands of possible pairs to try in Pokemon Masters EX. But, of course, some pairs work better than others based on their particular mix of skills.

For our Pokemon Masters Tier List, we’re ranking sync pairs across five tiers: S, A, B, C, and D. We’ve also specified whether each combination is a striker-, tech-, or support-based pairing.

S-Tier

First is S-Tier sync pairs which have some of the most effective in the game. Their skill combinations allow for either hard-hitting or support-heavy plays.

Striker Sync Pairs
  • Cynthia & Mega Garchomp
  • Hilbert & Mightyena

A-Tier

A-Tier sync pairs are still good picks, but don’t have as much potential as S-Tier sync pairs. This is either because their skillsets require more setup or because their type-based capabilities aren’t as powerful.

Striker Sync Pairs
  • Alder & Volcarona
  • Brendan & Sceptile
  • Blue & Mega Pidgeot
  • Iris & Haxorus
  • Lance & Dragonite
  • Lysandre & Yveltal

Tech Sync Pairs
  • Agatha & Mega Gengar
  • Dawn & Alcremie
  • Flannery & Torkoal
  • Ghetsis & Kyurem
  • Iris & Hydreigon
  • Koga & Crobat
  • Professor Oak & Mew
  • Serena & Whimsicott
  • Volkner & Luxray
  • Will & Xatu
Support Sync Pairs
  • Dawn & Torterra
  • Erika & Comfey
  • Jasmine & Mega Steelix
  • Lillie & Clefairy
  • Leaf & Eevee
  • Lyra & Meganium
  • Misty & Starmie
  • Piers & Obstagoon
  • Rosa & Delibird
  • Sygna Suit Elesa & Rotom

 

B-Tier

B-Tier sync pairs are combinations that are neither terrible nor spectacular. They’re ideal for players who don’t have access to S- or A-Tiers, but once you get your hands on a higher-tier pair, it’s best to start investing in that.

Striker Sync Pairs
  • Burgh & Leavanny
  • Caitlin & Reuniclus
  • Cyrus & Palkia
  • Elesa & Zebstrika
  • Korrina & Mega Lucario
  • Lance & Gyarados

  • Calem & Meowstic
  • Clemont & Heliolisk
  • Kukui & Lycanroc
  • Lisia & Mega Altaria
  • Mallow & Tsareena
  • Ramos & Victreebel
  • Skyla & Togekiss
  • Viola & Masquerain
  • Wallace & Milotic
Support Sync Pairs
  • Drake & Salamence

  • Erika & Comfey
  • Glacia & Mega Glalie
  • Lana & Araquanid
  • Phoebe & Dusknoir
  • Plater & Pikachu
  • Rosa & Serperior

 

C-Tier

C-Tier sync pairs are passable, so unless you don’t have any other higher-tier option that fits the team, steer clear of these pairs.

  • Winona & Pelipper
Support Sync Pairs
  • Cheryl & Blissey
  • Liza & Lunatone
  • Maylene & Medicham
  • Roxanne & Probopass

 

D-Tier

Finally, D-Tier sync pairs are bottom-of-the-barrel options. You have little to no reason to invest in these combinations. So, the second you get your hands on better pairs, stop putting time into these.

Striker Sync Pairs
  • Hapu & Mudsdale
  • Marshal & Conkeldur
