Once you become the Pokemon League Champion, your journey is far from over! After earning that coveted title, you will find new special Trainers scattered throughout the Kanto region.

Master Trainers are always thinking about their favorite Pokemon, so you can spot them at a glance. The icon of the Pokémon they favor is displayed above their heads, and the color of their attire is different than other Trainers, too.

Some Master Trainers will have a simple request for you, but most of them will want to battle! The only catch is that they will only battle against the species of Pokemon they love. You’ll need to train up each of your Pokemon to take on these tough challengers. Because these Master Trainer battles are true tests of you and your Pokemon’s strength, neither you nor the Master Trainer will be able to use items during the match.
