Pokemon Go: Master League PVP, Tiered Rankings

Pokemon Go: Master League PVP, Tiered Rankings

If you've played Pokemon GO, you may have noticed that you can battle against other players in PVP. This is all part of the Pokemon GO Trainer Battles, and to participate, you'll first need to pick what league you want to join. There are three in total, Great League, Ultra League, and Master League. The first two of these come with a CP limit, being 1,500 and 2,500 respectively, whereas the Master League has none.

With me so far? Good.

Now, it should be pretty self-explanatory that the leagues are designed to be played by specific trainers, for example, if you're new to the game then head-on into the Great League as if you try Ultra or Master you're going to get very killed. You'll also find that each league has a tiered ranking system, meaning that you'll be able to battle weaker Pokemon to help grind yours to an acceptable level before you take on the harder ones. 

If you're not sure which Pokemon you should be fighting and which you should be avoiding until you're tough enough to take them head-on, then this is where this handy guide comes into play.

The tier structure is as follows, Rank 5 is the lowest and therefore has the easiest Pokemon to fight, and Rank 1 is the hardest and should only be attempted if you have strong enough Pokemon in your arsenal.
