The 3v3 sync pair battles in Pokemon Masters EX make the game entertaining but also confusing for new players. If you’re baffled about choosing an ideal sync pair, here’s a Pokemon Masters tier list featuring the best sync pairs in August 2022.

Pokemon Masters EX is a unique game in the Pokemon franchise where trainers and their Pokemon play an equally important role in battles. There are different types of sync pairs – attacking, tech, and support.

Unlike Pokemon Go, Pokemon in Pokemon Masters EX only have one weakness. The goal is to come up with a balanced team of three sync pairs that can deal damage, defend, apply status effects, and heal the team.

To make things easier for you, we’ve made a Pokemon Masters tier list where you can find the sync pairs that are worth the time and effort.

B-tier sync pairs in Pokemon Masters

B-tier sync pairs in Pokemon Masters aren’t ‘bad’. However, their performance is situational and you should not expect consistency from them. They might outshine the opponents in one battle but get completely thrashed in the next.

C-tier sync pairs in Pokemon Masters

C-tier sync pairs in Pokemon Masters are not effective in a majority of scenarios and to be fair, you should not be spending your time on them. The stats of these sync pairs are lopsided and accordingly, it is not wise to rely on them for victory.

D-tier sync pairs in Pokemon Masters

D-tier sync pairs in Pokemon Masters can significantly affect your progress with their low success rate. They will rarely help you in clutching the win, and thanks to their terrible defense stats, the battles won’t be that long in most cases.

E-tier sync pairs in Pokemon Masters

Long story short, don’t pick the E-tier sync pairs in Pokemon Masters. They do not provide enough attack or defense and using them during Champion fights is something you might regret.
