Almost everyone from the 90s or even before that grew up playing Pokémon games in form or another; my first experience with Pokémon was on my Gameboy Color when I played Pokemon Yellow and I remember getting completely lost in the game for ages until I tried my hands on the Silver and fell in love even more.
The franchise has evolved continuously and continues to do so and Pokémon Masters is just another game in the long-running franchise that you can play. The game come with a lot of players that you can collect and some of them are much, much better than others.
This is the reason why a Pokémon Masters tier list is what we need so we can get started with the game and you know what you need to pick and why you need to pick.
Before you get started, Pokémon Masters splits your sync pairs into different roles ranging from physical, special, tech, and support and each of them work differently. The purpose here is to find the best sync pairs for each class, so you know what you need to get started.
Pokemon Master Sync Pair Types
The game brings you sync pairs, and we are going to explore each and how they work.
Physical Sync Pairs
In almost all the Pokémon titles, the sweeper gameplay style has been among the most common ones, and we are going to start with the strongest physical attackers in the game, so you are fully aware.
Special Sync Pairs
Special sync pairs are a lot like physical sync pairs, wherein, these pairs are focused on dealing a lot of damage, however, these are often on the slower side, so that is one thing to keep in mind.
Tech Sync Pairs
Tech pairs are different as they are better when it comes to sending barrage of status effects and it is not at all unusual for them to get extra damage using sync moves. It is always better to pair them with a matching striker for the maximum effect and damage.
Support Sync Pairs
As the name suggests, support sync pairs work in order to keep the entire team fighting properly. However, this is not done through healing but through tanking hits with high bulk, or providing buffs, both of which are very helpful.
Pokemon Masters Tier List
Now that we have all the types out of the way, you can look at the tiers and which character goes into which tier list.
S tier should not really come as a surprise to anyone. Regardless of the game you are talking about, this tier is always the one that manages to dominate the game and provides the best experience. Oftentimes, mastering this tier can be difficult but once you get a hold of it, you are unstoppable.

There are times when the difference between S tier and A tier is very minor to a point that it all depends on who’s playing with the character. A tier characters are often just as good and if played right, can give S tier characters a hard time.

This is the tier that you have to avoid at all costs for the simplest reason that characters in this tier are not at all strong and often fail to deliver the same level of experience that you could get from other characters and that is what we want to avoid whenever you are playing the game.
