Boss tier list and rewards - Updated on 21/08/2020


Recommended Posts

Post is currently broken after some forum changes - Will most likely have to do a new one when I have the time

 

 

Welcome to my Unofficial tier list for bosses! This isn't a guide on how to beat bosses but an attempt to classify them by rankings.

 

Due to the new changes, it was decided to make a thread based on the one by idkup. The top 15-20 spot of a boss list should be consistent for everyone. Choosing the last remaining bosses can be an entangled task if you're hesitating or confused. It especially becomes harsh when you're new to the variable PvE content of PRO. This is mostly to help people who are confused and want to weight and compare the multiple rewards

 

Every changelog is posted at the bottom of the thread.

 

 

Ranking

 

S tier - The best of the best. Those are bosses that have an insane or very good pool of pokemon along with excellent items and money rewards. Do not skip those.

A tier - Generally the most common bosses, which are worth doing as well.

B tier - Suboptimal bosses compared to the other tiers; fighting them is not recommended, unless the goal is to fetch a certain reward. It could also be worth fighting them if you don't have access to enough bosses from the other tiers.

 

The rankings were chosen based on 3 principal criteria, in that order;

 

1. Pokemon pool available (3rd reward and random reward)

2. Item's reward available

3. Money reward

 

A good pokemon pool is better than a good money reward in my opinion. This could be showcased in certain situations.

Changelogs

 

Spoiler

 

This post is a huge WIP ! Changelogs will be posted as a different message following suggestions/changes

 

 

 

 

Changelogs for 8th June 2020.

 

- Guide mostly completed, all bosses and rewards added with the exception of the missing ones.

- Added every ranking for bosses that are not missing

- Added links to wiki page following the locations of these NPCS

- Added the sprite of the teams that currently have a tier; the others will be added when classified accordingly

 

S+ tier

 

Urahara: Excellent pokemon pool with an insane amount of good rewards item-wise (Choice items to Hollow Mask). S+ deserved for now

Ash Westbrook: While there's still a lot of missing data, this boss gives a tremendous amount of money (Almost double) compared to the casual bosses

BattleBot: Same as Westbrook, some missing data but an insane amount of money. Possibly the most worth boss to do

Medusa and Eldir: Excellent pokemon pool (Alolans!) with a good combination of money and items. Has a chance for mini-MS and DC Clothes

Shary and Shaui: Not necessarily the best bosses item-wise, but there are still interesting options (Rare candies, Goomy hat, Lunch Box). Excellent pokemon pool and money reward

 

S tier

 

Terminator: Excellent pool available with decent items and money reward

Steven: Excellent pool, good money, and good items available

Spectify: Excellent items with a nice pool and money reward

Logan: Decent pokemon pool, could be better, but insane items. 2x Life orb and Logan Mask. Average money.

Saphirr: Excellent pool with some nice items (Rare candies, Fire gems, Focus sash)

Tigerous: Pokemon pool could be better, decent rewards. Eumi token's pushed it to the S tier since it has the opportunity to give very good items

Lance: Insane pokemon pool, arguably the best one since all these shinies/pvpable are worth millions. Nice items

Entei: Insane pool, gives access to Entei and possible choice band. The Choice band pushed it to S tier

 

 

A+ tier

 

George :Excellent pool with decent rewards. Sadly not enough to push it to S tier

Shamac: Very good pool with compelling rewards as well, really close to being an S tier

Chuck : Amazing pool with decent items

Thor: Excellent pool and a few interesting rewards, sadly not enough for S tier

Link: Insane pokemon pool, some decent rewards but sadly those are entangled together in a mess of rewards. Hence, The possibility to get better rewards is lower and pushes him to A+ tier.

Professor Rowan: Good pool with some nice items possibilities. A very close call to being higher might change

Letrix : Decent rewards and interesting pokemon pool. A+ is perfect

Koichi: Excellent pool with some nice items possibilities

Brothers Pewdie and Diepy: Excellent pool and money reward, but items are in a mess. It makes it hard to get a decent item reward. Only things that stop it from being S.

Morty : Very interesting pool and decent rewards.

 

 

 

A tier

 

Bruno: Interesting pool and rewards. Nothing too good, nothing too bad.

Brock: Very nice item's reward (Nuggets, stardust, rare candies). Fossils pokemon aren't the best rewards but the item pool saves it from being lower.

Gingery Jones: Good pool, even though shiny fossils odds are much better in labs. Fossils are decent rewards. Could say that it's a slightly better brock

Erika: Excellent pool of pokemon, but sadly the items reward are poor. Can't get to A+ with just a nice pool.

Professor Oak: Again, excellent pool, but poor rewards for the most part. So close to being A+!

Klohver: Interesting pool and 2 rare candies possibilities. Outside of that and money nothing worth a lot.

Suicune Guardian: Decent pool with the possibility of choice item, which is the only thing that pushes it to this tier.

Raikou Guardian: Decent pool with the possibility of choice item, which is the only thing that pushes it to this tier. Same story as Suicune.

Neroli: Very interesting pool and rewards! Sadly also a bit of a mess that makes it hard to push it to the further tier.

Jessie and James: A rather conflicting choice to put them here because of the poor money reward, but it has an insane pokemon pool available with rocket uniforms which could sell for a bit.

Naruto fanboy: Nice pool, missing data for some items but looks decent.

 

 

A- Tier

 

Professor Elm: Interesting pool, only 1 reward interesting and it's tier 2. Very close to being an A tier

Bugsy: Snivy and Nincada are interesting, but the rest isn't much. Poor item rewards. My opinion might change.

Naero : Nice pokemon pool, but no item's available, and a random pokemon reward is a mess of low tiers. Should be done once to unlock daycare.

Misty: Feebas, Togepi, and Oshawott are nice rewards... The rest not much. Good money though.

 

 

B+ tier

 

Xylos: Has ice stone, which is nice, but Eevee is not a nice reward in my opinion. The chance of getting a shiny is abysmal and I'd rather try my chance on better pokemon.

Lorelei: Has Ice stone too and Lapras, same story. The clothes aren't that interesting.

 

 

 

B Tier

 

The Pumpkin King: The only interesting reward in this boss is Pawniard. Would have been straight to D rank if it wasn't there.

Sage: Eevee is not an interesting reward if you're trying to get money. There are better options here.

 

 

 

 

Spoiler

 

Since mega are coming very soon a lot of pokemon will have their value changed. Decided to update the list following these changes and to fix some of my errors.

 

NEW CHANGES - Rank S- has been introduced since there's a clearer disparity in bosses' reward(s) now due to the value that mega pokemon brings.

 

Professor Birch, Officer Jenny, and Maribela were given a tier even with missing information (mostly about items).

 

Battle bot: Added membership (my error, sorry!). Added pokemon pool as well. The money range is still rather unknown, I need to do more testing.

 

Ash Westbrook: Lowered to rank A. Added some item rewards and pokemon pool. The money is still decent, but the pool is too bad.

 

Shary: Lowered to S. Genuinely saddened by the money nerf of my favorite boss duo. However, bunneary and audio are now seen as better rewards due to the mega arrival. Without it probably would have been lowered even more

 

Lance: Bumped to S+ With casual rewards, Lance makes it's way to the top due to his nice pokemon pool. Mega Altaria and Bagon are two of the fan's favorite mega pokemon.

 

Birch: Tentative S- A mega trio is always super interesting. Still waiting for the items.

 

Jenny: Tentative A. Squirtle and electrike are nice mega but the rest is just subpar compared to the others for the moment. Will be updated following my results!

 

Maribela: Tentative A+. Ralts and larvesta are two nice pokemon. Will be updated as well following the item pool!

 

Entei guardian: Bumped to S+ Nice rewards, access to Bulbasaur, and Charmander.

 

George: Bumped to S- Riolu and houndour are two nice Megas. George just needed a little push to make it into the S tier.

 

Link: Bumped to S- Aegislash makes it's way to pro with having his two signature moves/abilities coded. This tier will entirely depend on how pro players actually handle and play the said pokemon. If he's played in a manner to shift and define the entire meta around as talonflame did, Link will go higher.

 

Thor: Bumped to S- Mega larvitar! Deserved the bump. froakie(maybe?) will depend on how battle bond is obtainable in the future. If obtainable from thor, it will be bumped again.

 

Pewdie: Bumped to S. Even with one of the most convoluted item pool, the brothers make it to S. Ralts and Beldum are two good mega pokemon.

 

Koichi: Bumped to S Riolu and ralts nice enough to put it to S

 

Oak: Bumped to S Gets the Kanto trio, which all have mega evolutions available.

 

Neroli: Bumped to A+ Simply because of Ralts. An arguable bad item pool since messy. Might change!

 

Bruno: Bumped to S- Mega-medicham is an excellent mega and will surely be played a lot in PRO.

 

Bugsy: Bumped to S- Added ferroseed (Sorry for the mistake!). Mega scizor and mega pinsir are two nice mega, even with a bad item pool it's still worth it.

 

Elm: Bumped to A. Pokemon/item pool are not exactly the best which is why it's so low. Larvitar though!

 

Lt.Surge: Bumped to A+ Genuinely an error from my part for putting it so low. Rotom and Helioptile deserve better!

 

Toohtless: Bumped to A. Just because of beldum!

Really useful guide, will definitely save much time when deciding which bosses are worth doing.

Great guide! Neatly done. I think you should add the "Access to Raikou" part to the Raikou Guardian reward pool.

 

Corrected, thanks. Wasn't correctly re-added when copy-pasted.

 

A little update in the meantime, it seems like Shary and Shaui received a slight nerf on her money reward. The double boss stays to S+ tier currently so that I can gather more data on the range, but will most likely be moved to S tier due to this nerf.

Mega update! (not a huge one actually)

Since mega are coming very soon a lot of pokemon will have their value changed. Decided to update the list following these changes and to fix some of my errors.

 

NEW CHANGES - Rank S- has been introduced since there's a clearer disparity in bosses' reward(s) now due to the value that mega pokemon brings.

 

Professor Birch, Officer Jenny, and Maribela were given a tier even with missing information (mostly about items).

 

[spoiler=25/07/2020 - Changelogs! Mega update]

Battle bot: Added membership (my error, sorry!). Added pokemon pool as well. The money range is still rather unknown, I need to do more testing.

 

Ash Westbrook: Lowered to rank A. Added some item rewards and pokemon pool. The money is still decent, but the pool is too bad.

 

Shary: Lowered to S. Genuinely saddened by the money nerf of my favorite boss duo. However, bunneary and audio are now seen as better rewards due to the mega arrival. Without it probably would have been lowered even more

 

Lance: Bumped to S+ With casual rewards, Lance makes it's way to the top due to his nice pokemon pool. Mega Altaria and Bagon are two of the fan's favorite mega pokemon.

 

Birch: Tentative S- A mega trio is always super interesting. Still waiting for the items.

 

Jenny: Tentative A. Squirtle and electrike are nice mega but the rest is just subpar compared to the others for the moment. Will be updated following my results!

 

Maribela: Tentative A+. Ralts and larvesta are two nice pokemon. Will be updated as well following the item pool!

 

Entei guardian: Bumped to S+ Nice rewards, access to Bulbasaur, and Charmander.

 

George: Bumped to S- Riolu and houndour are two nice Megas. George just needed a little push to make it into the S tier.

 

Link: Bumped to S- Aegislash makes it's way to pro with having his two signature moves/abilities coded. This tier will entirely depend on how pro players actually handle and play the said pokemon. If he's played in a manner to shift and define the entire meta around as talonflame did, Link will go higher.

 

Thor: Bumped to S- Mega larvitar! Deserved the bump. froakie(maybe?) will depend on how battle bond is obtainable in the future. If obtainable from thor, it will be bumped again.

 

Pewdie: Bumped to S. Even with one of the most convoluted item pool, the brothers make it to S. Ralts and Beldum are two good mega pokemon.

 

Koichi: Bumped to S Riolu and ralts are nice enough to put it to S

 

Oak: Bumped to S Gets the Kanto trio, which all have mega evolutions available.

 

Neroli: Bumped to A+ Simply because of Ralts. An arguable bad item pool since messy. Might change!

 

Bruno: Bumped to S- Mega-medicham is an excellent mega and will surely be played a lot in PRO.

 

Bugsy: Bumped to S- Added ferroseed (Sorry for the mistake!). Mega scizor and mega pinsir are two nice mega, even with a bad item pool it's still worth it.

 

Elm: Bumped to A. Pokemon/item pool are not exactly the best which is why it's so low. Larvitar though!

 

Lt.Surge: Bumped to A+ Genuinely an error from my part for putting it so low. Rotom and Helioptile deserve better!

 

Toohtless: Bumped to A. Just because of beldum!
