Master Trainer & Title Guide

Master Trainers

After beating the Elite Four, Master Trainers become available all over the Pokemon Let's Go world. You can recognize them by a bubble icon above their heads showing the Pokemon for which they are the Master Trainer. Master Trainers are the peak trainers of their respective Pokemon. You can fight them for the title of Master Trainer of that specific Pokemon type. However, the fights are 1 on 1, no items, and obviously only that specific Pokemon. The Master Trainer's Pokemon is usually incredibly powerful, sitting around level 65 to 80, loaded up with Candy / AVs, and almost always has a tricky moveset.

Titles

When you unlock a title, people in the Pokemon world will refer to you as that title followed by your name (EX: Machop Trainer GARY). Also, people you face in pvp link battles will also see your title.

Beating a Master Trainer will grant you the Master Trainer title for that specific Pokemon, but there are a few more titles:

  • Unlocking ALL Master Trainer titles will grant you the title of "Grand Master"
  • Beating Red will grant you the title of "Battle Master"

They don't otherwise offer any value or utility, but it's a fun end-game mechanic that let's you really show your Pokemon prowess.

How to Prepare for a Fight Against a Master Trainer

Master Trainers are quite difficult to beat. Not only do they boast Pokemon between level 65 and 80, those Pokemon are also pumped full of Candy. You will find them to be more powerful than a level 100 Pokemon without Candy!

  • Run a practice round first! That will give you an idea of exactly how strong the Pokemon is, and what special tricks they have in store for you. Typically they will know a move that counters your type. After running or being defeated your Pokemon will be completely healed, including their PP, so there is no harm in fighting them over and over.
  • Stock up on Technical Machines (TMs) to teach your Pokemon new moves. The more TMs you have, the more likely you'll have something your Pokemon can learn that counters its own type.
  • Pump Candy. While it's ideal to avoid it if you can, it can be difficult to win the fight without pumping your Pokemon's AVs a bit.
  • Consider a cheese strategy. This could be something like Toxic + Protect where you poison them and then protect yourself (or some other defensive oriented ability like a heal) until they die from the poison.
  • Consider getting lucky. If you use a move that has a chance to paralyze or some other meaningful effect, you can keep running the fight over and over until you successfully get the effect. This can let you beat opponents that are much tougher than you. Remember, no items, so your opponent is just stuck with the effect.

Changing Your Title

You may not want to call yourself the Diglett Trainer, so it's important to know how to change your title. Unfortunately you can't do it on the fly. You'll have to go to the Game Freak headquarters in Celadon City. It's directly to the left of the Pokecenter you SkyDash to, right after the Poliwrath. It's the multiple story building where you also get the Shiny Charm. There is a woman on the 3rd floor that will change your title for you free of charge.

A Few Exceptions

Not all Master Trainers require you to battle them, several will give you the title simply for having a Pokemon that is strong enough. Strong enough is defined by how much CP they have. Find the list below:

  • Ditto: 4000+ CP
  • Articuno 7500+ CP
  • Zapdos 7500+ CP
  • Moltres 7500+ CP
  • Mewtwo 9000+ CP
  • Mew 8000+ CP
  • Meltan 4000+ CP
  • Melmetal 8000+ CP

All you need to do is go up to the Master Trainer and speak to them with your pumped up Pokemon ready to show off and you'll land the title.
