The GO Battle League Season 8 is here, and we’re moving onto the most exciting rotation, the Master League.

Chocked full of hard-hitting Legendary Pokemon, the Master League is the place to play.

However, playing is only part of it and, if you’re anything like me, you’re going to want to build the best team to win your matches.

So, with that in mind, here are the top 25 Pokemon in the Pokemon GO Master League and the Best Team compositions you can pick in June/July 2021.

Best Master League Classic Team Choices – June/July 2021

  • Togekiss/Melmetal/Mamoswine – the Legendary killers
  • Lugia/Mewtwo/Gyarados

  • Swampert/Mamoswine/Groudon

  • Palkia/Togekiss/Magnezone

While there’s no hard and fast “best team” because it all depends on your opponent, I feel these are some of the best.

They’re not guaranteed to win every match, but they are designed in a way to cover a variety of types, to limit weaknesses and to hit hard against some of the Master League’s best Pokemon.

As long as you use a range of the above Pokemon and put your team together using a similar theory, you should go far!
