A Café Master (Japanese: マスター Master) is a type of Pokémon Trainer introduced in Generation VIII. They are owners of Battle Cafés located throughout Galar. They use Pokémon related to sweets, most of which are Fairy-type Pokémon. In Battle Cafés, Café Masters will face the player in a Double Battle whenever they use more than one Pokémon, and they can be rematched once a day. In the Battle Tower, Café Masters specialize in Fire- and Ice-type Pokémon.
