Found this yesterday and got a good laugh from it. I totally read the hashtag as what’s in the cat portion.

Grinding out Master Trainers in Let’s Go Eevee. I’ve done about 25 so far. Hoping to have them all done by the end of September.

153, actually. Meltan and Melmetal from Pokémon Go have Master Trainers.

It’s actually not all that hard. Level grinding with the Chansey in Cerulean Cave takes a bit to get going, but after catching a few, you can average over 10,000 exp. per Chansey easy. You can level grind 6 Pokémon at a time, and after you beat their Master Trainer, you can give them a Rare Candy to get them to evolve quickly. After getting Bulbasaur to level 94, I beat all three Master Trainers in his evolutionary line in maybe 5 minutes. And Legendaries and Ditto just need to be level 100. They don’t see battle at all.

As for battle strategies, a few can learn 1-hit KO moves that you can take advantage of. However, for the most part, you’re going to be spamming Toxic, Protect, Reflect/Light Screen, and maybe Substitute, although I haven’t had much luck with it. The real grinds are gonna be Pokémon like Metapod and Kakuna and Magikarp. I’m at 28 now since I last posted, technically 29 since I have a level 100 Mewtwo I haven’t brought to his Master Trainer yet.

If the Magikarp Master Trainer is the Magikarp Salesman from the anime I’d be so disappointed. Him tricking James in the original show into buying a Magikarp was funny, especially how it turns on James the instant it turns into Gyrados.

I printed out a list with pictures of every Gen 1 Pokémon, and I’ve been slowly crossing them out as I beat the Master Trainers. As of right now, I’m nearly halfway there. Just today, I beat both the Caterpie and Metapod Master Trainers, and let me tell you...

I loaded them up with Caterpie Candy and used a PP Max on its Tackle and even then I just managed to defeat the Metapod before running out of PP for Tackle. It was all thanks to the three crits I managed throughout the 15 minute battle. And I’ll have to do this again with Weedle and Kakuna too.

Wait, you have to fight the Master trainers with that particular Pokémon too? Man, that’s rough, especially for those early Bug Pokémon. Is there a reward for defeating all the Master trainers?

Yeah, basically you fight a ‘roided out version of one of the 151 (plus Meltan and Melmetal) Pokémon with your own. But if you were to send out a vanilla version of, say, Mankey, you’re likely to get your ass handed to you, especially if you’re fighting on an even playing field and both your Pokémon are level 65. Your opponent has incredibly high stats and you can’t use anything in your bag. 
 

There are a couple strategies that can earn you a win so long as your Pokémon can take a few hits, such as using some combination of Toxic, Reflect/Light Screen, Protect, Substitute, but this strategy won’t work on all of them. You need to level grind Chansey, which will net you tens of thousands of exp and Health Candies, which you can use to beef up you Pokémon’s HP if they need it.

You’d be surprised at which ones ended up being easy and which ones hard. Like, I defeated the Charizard Master Trainer in one hit, yet it took me 15 minutes to beat a Metapod.

As for what you get as a reward, basically just a sense of pride and accomplishment lol. Also a title for each Pokémon (Muk Master, Pikachu Master, etc.).

Ah. I figured they’d go for the Diploma type reward like in the originals for completing the Pokédex. Just instead it’s a diploma for beating all the Master trainers. Cool you get called Master for each Pokémon though.
