Pokemon Masters Ex is a spinoff of the beloved Pokemon series and is a favorite among mobile gamers. Masters Ex is different from the standard entries in the series, considering the combat mainly focuses on three versus three battles consisting of mixing and matching trainers and Pokemon. There are many ways you can create pairs, and while there is no wrong answer, some pairs are way more substantial than other options. This article will provide you with our definitive ranking of the best Sync Pairs in Pokemon Masters Ex.

S Tier

These combinations are the strongest due to how hard they hit or how much support they provide. You will go right with all these pairs, as they make you a formidable force to reckon with. Their skills complement one another, making one hell of a team. For example, Kris and Suicune offer buffs to increase attack power and abilities to weaken the opponent’s defense. They aren’t the only one either, as each team here provides a high Critical Rate and healing options to keep your team alive longer.

A Tier

These pairs have skill sets that complement one another, like S-rank, but take more time to master and a little longer setup period. That’s okay, though, as once you fully understand how to use these pairs, you can become a powerful team. All of these pairs excel in their specific class shown on the grid; for example, Jasmine and Celesteela are the perfect support pair for their high defense stat, along with the potential to maximize her team’s Critical Hit Rate. This is the type of talent you will find at the A level.

B Tier

These pairs are a good choice if you want to progress further in the game. They can help you access higher-level teams, but once you finally get your hands on others, it would be wise to replace them for more substantial options. While these trainers have good moves, such as “You and Me” from the Red and Snorlax Pair, which reduces the sync move countdown by one, they don’t offer more than one useful ability. If the critical rate potential eventually increases or they get additional helpful moves, they could fit in the A Tier.

C Tier

This is when pairs start to enter into the weak territory. Some of these pairs make no sense regarding the lore of Pokemon; for example, Noland and Pinsir have no significant relationship in any form of the series medium. The lack of bond between trainers and Pokemon shows in battle through the weaknesses of their attack power and lackluster defense.

D Tier

You should only invest time into these pairs if you want to challenge yourself. But sometimes, it just seems impossible to win with these options. Unfortunately, some favorite names landed this low, such as Sylveon or Electrode, but they seem weak here compared to mainline entries. They don’t pair well with their trainers, and no skills complement one another well enough to progress on the battlefield.

Pokémon Masters EX is available now for Android and iOS devices.
