Master League and Master League Classic tier list

by Kyle Hanson


GO Battle League Season 7 Continues its march to its epic conclusion in Pokémon GO with the debut of Master League and Master League Classic in March 2021. The return of this top tier battle arena offers players another chance to refine their teams. The tier list hasn’t changed too much since Season 6, but you’ll still want to check to be sure you’re using the very best. So here’s our Pokémon GO Master League guide with all the best Pokémon for your team in March and April 2021.

The Best Master League Pokémon for March and April 2021

Master League and Master League Classic will run from Monday, March 29th at 4pm Eastern Time until Monday, April 5th at 4pm when it changes to all leagues. Below is a chart for all of the best Pokémon to use in Master League in March 2021. Master League Classic is also offered, blocking off XL powered characters. The list doesn’t change much for this, so we’ve merged them together. You can use the chart below to choose your team for either playlist and feel confident that you’re using the best of the best.

Just pick one or two from our list that you want to build your team around. Look at their type and what they might be weak to or resist damage from and try to plug any holes with others from the list or the top of your CP list.
Note: If marked with (XL) they are better for Master League than for Master League Classic where they may be underpowered.
