Pokemon Go’s Battle League Season 7 is wrapping up with the Master League in April 2021. Here are the best Pokemon Trainers should be using to secure their victories in the epic competition.

After a month of training and hard work, Pokemon Go’s Master League has finally arrived. The no-CP limit competition means users can flex their muscles by bringing out their most powerful ‘mon.

The PVP mode’s difficulty is kicked up a notch as Legendaries throughout the series can also be brought to the battle. Here are the best Pokemon you should be using on your team to best your rivals.

Since making its debut in 2016, Niantic has added hundreds of ‘mon in Pokemon Go from across the series’ 25 year history. With over eight generations of characters to choose from, only the best have risen to the top in the mobile title’s Master League.

As of 2021, Diamond & Pearl’s Dialga has become the strongest contender in Battle League’s final tier. Trainers will want to include the Sinnoh Legendary in their team or be prepared to counter it.

While the game’s PVP mode is constantly evolving as new characters are introduced or moves are unlocked, we will break down the top Pokemon currently dominating the meta as of Battle League Season 7.
