The Master League Premier Classic is back on Pokémon Go for a limited time. In this competition, you will be fighting against other players in PvP battles, but things will work a little differently in these fights than in other Master League battles. The Master League Premier Classic allows you to use any Pokémon that doesn't pass level 40, so you can't have used an XL candy on it. Also, none of the Pokémon can be a Legendary or Mythical Pokémon. You have to use regular Pokémon, but it can be the ones that haven't been boosted by XL candy. These are the best Pokémon teams to use for the Master League Premier Classic in Pokémon Go. These battles will be available from November 9-22.
The best Pokémon teams for the Master League Premier Classic
Gyarados, Metagross and Dragonite
The first team that we will recommend includes the fearsome Gyarados as the main Pokémon. Gyarados is typically at the top of the tier lists, especially in the Master League, and you can never go wrong. Next, you want to have Metagross as your Pokémon Switch, making it a bulkier choice in this role but still a worthwhile addition. For the ultimate Pokémon, we recommend Dragonite as the Closer.
- Gyarados: Dragon's Breath (fast moving), aquatic tail and crunch
- Metagross: bullet fist (fast moving), earthquake and meteor mash
- Dragonite: Dragon's Breath (Quick Move), Dragon's Claw, and Hurricane
Garchomp, Swampert e Chesnaught
If anyone has a Garchomp they want to use it; the Master League Premier Classic is the time to use it. This powerful Pokémon has been used even more after Community Day and remains an excellent Lead Pokémon. To confirm this, we recommend having Swampert in the role of Switch, capable of mowing most of the Pokémon in this competition. To complete the team, the Grass and Fighting-type Chesnaght is a good Closer.
- Garchomp: Mudstrike (fast moving), outrage and sand grave
- Swampert: Mud Shot (quick move), hydraulic cannon, and mud wave
- Chesnaught: Climbing whip (fast moving), energy sphere and superpower
Excadrill, Milotic e Snorlax
For this team, we recommend using Excadrill as the main Pokémon. It is a sturdy Pokémon with much more attack power than defense, but it is a Ground and Steel type Pokémon, which means it has different resistances. But to make sure you protect it, we recommend having Milotic for your Pokémon Switches. Finally, to finish off the rest of your team, we recommend having Snorlax as the closest Pokémon.
- Excradrill: Mud stroke (fast moving), drilling and landslide
- Milotic: Dragon tail (fast moving), blizzard and surf
- Snorlax: Lick (fast movement), body slam and superpower
Magnezone, Heracross and Goodra
The next team we'd like to recommend has Magnezone, the Electric and Steel-type Pokémon, as their guide. This Pokémon has excellent attack power and even better defenses as a Steel-type. However, we recommend protecting it with Heracross, the Bug-type and Fighting-type Pokémon, for your Switch. To finish the team, we recommend using Goodra, the Dragon-type Pokémon, for your Closer.
- Magnezone: Spark (fast movement), mirror shot and wild charge
- Heracross: Counter attack (quick move), close combat and rock blast
- Goodra: Dragon's Breath (Fast Move), Drake Meteor, and Powerful Whip
Sylveon, Blaziken ed Electivire
The last team we recommend using features Sylveon, the Fairy-type evolution of Eevee. It is a suitable choice for a Lead Pokémon, but is weak against Poison and Steel-type attacks. To help you counter these Pokémon, we recommend using Blaziken, the Fire and Fighting-type Pokémon, for your Switch. But to complete the whole team, use Electivire as the Closer.
- Sylveon: Charm (fast move), moon blast and psyshock
- Blaziken: Counterattack (quick move), explosive burn and flaming kick
- Electivire: Thunder Strike (Fast Move), Ice Fist, and Wild Charge
