Pokémon GO’s GO Battle League Season 6 is coming to a close soon and one of the last hurrahs is the return of Master League and its corresponding Premier Cup which limits the available Pokémon. If you’re heading back into the almost-no-holds-barred world of Master League then you had better have some of the best Pokémon in the game on your team. A lot has changed since we last entered Master League and its Premier Cup so let’s break down everything in this Pokémon GO Master League and Premier Cup guide, showing you the best Pokémon for your team in February 2021.

The Best Pokémon for Master League in February 2021

Below are our picks for the best Pokémon for Master League in February 2021. A few have moved up or down since we last made this list so try to form your team as best you can. Of course, XL Pokémon are now allowed in regular Master League, so if you aren’t using them you can head to Master League Classic instead. Otherwise try to choose some of the Pokémon from the top of this tier list and form a team around them, filling in weaknesses and adding additional strengths.

Note: The Strong Against field is telling you what they will resist damage from. Use the type of the attack to determine if it will deal extra damage using our type chart.
