Pokemon Let's Go Eevee & Pikachu: Master Trainer Locations Guide

Wanting to the be the very best like no one ever was, Pokémon players are taking on the almighty challenge of Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go Eevee! for the Nintendo Switch. Even after players have completed their Pokédex and trounced the Elite Four, there's still plenty to do in Kanto.

New to Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go Eevee! are Master Trainers — experts in their species who only carry a single Pokémon. Spotted by the speech bubble above their head, players are tasked with taking on Master Trainers using a matching Pokémon and without the use of any items.

Trainers have to put the selected Pokémon in their first slot to engage in battle and strip the Master Trainer of their title. For example, to become the Abra Master Trainer, players have to find the current Master Trainer by Viridian City and have their own Abra in prime position.

It's important to note that not every Master Trainer will require players to fight them, meaning that showing off a suitably powerful Gyrados might be able to win them over. Also, evolved Alohan forms can be used to take on the likes of a standard Exeggutor. Finally, battling Master Trainers is just for fun because no experience will be awarded from defeating them.

Being able to tackle every Master Trainer will take a serious amount of Pokémon training and trading, but for those who want to really complete Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go Eevee! it's an extra quest to keep the game going. Now that gamers know where to find all 153, it's time to head out on a journey to become the ultimate Pokémon Master.
