The Pokemon Company revealed new details about the games' Master Trainers-tough opponents who'll only appear around the Kanto region after you've conquered the Elite Four.

In Pokemon Let's Go, there's one Master Trainer for each Pokemon in the game, and you'll have the chance to battle them all. That's right-there's a Master Trainer for every Pokemon in the Kanto region! These are the Master Trainers, and each of them is considered the strongest Trainer for a specific Pokemon.

An image of each Master Trainer's favorite creature will be displayed above their head, giving players a idea of what to expect.

Ford will build another 1350 GT supercars following 'exceptional' interest
When it was first announced, there were only plans to build 500 examples of the GT. However, only 138 were actually completed through the first year.

While the battles won't be easy, defeating a Master Trainer will earn you their title, and NPCs in the game will then refer to you by that title. The only catch is that they will only battle against the species of Pokemon they love. The new games will introduce Master Trainers as post-game content as a way for players to prove that they are truly the best trainer in the world. You can get a closer look at the Master Trainers in the new trailer above.

Some Master Trainers will have a simple request for you, but majority will want to battle! For starters, they'll be one-on-one mirror matches, so if you encounter the Jigglypuff Master Trainer, the only Pokemon you'll be able to use is a Jigglypuff of your own.
