A Message from the Pokémon Masters EX Team (Vol. 14)
We’re the producers of Pokémon Masters EX, Yu Sasaki and Tetsuya Iguchi, here with a new message for you.
Today, we’ll discuss the latest event news, updates planned for December, and the results of the 6★ EX Sync Pair Poll Rally that was held recently.
Story Event: Dazzling Dizzying Battle Stage
The Dazzling Dizzying Battle Stage story event begins today.
Lisia & Altaria are available in the sync pair scout that runs alongside the event. They also appear in the event itself, so be sure to check them out.
Returning Legendary Event: The Dragon That Rules the Sky
The Dragon That Rules the Sky legendary event, which first ran in late January and early February of this year, will return on October 31, 2020.
Zinnia & Rayquaza, which can be added to your team in this event, will have Lv. 125 unlocked, so even if you already played this event during its first run earlier this year, we hope you give it another go.
Time Trial Event
A new type of event, the time trial event, will debut in mid-November.
In battles in this event, you’ll be assigned a grade based on your completion time. The higher your grade, the more points you’ll get.
Based on your points, you’ll be able to earn rewards such as 5★-Guaranteed Scout Tickets, Move Candy Coins, ★ Power-Up Tickets, and more. We hope you all build your teams to get the fastest time possible as you enjoy this event.
Another new type of event, the prestige event, is coming in late November.
In this event, you’ll be placed on a leaderboard based on how many points you earn from battles. The higher you’re placed, the better rewards you can receive.
The number of points you earn from battles changes based on factors such as how much damage you took during battle or the highest amount of damage you dealt. We hope you have fun building teams for this event!
In addition to these rewards, there will also be rewards to unlock during the event by reaching preset point tiers.
Even if you just recently started playing Pokémon Masters EX, there will be chances for you to get rewards, so we hope everyone gives this event a try.
We are planning to launch a new Theme Skills feature.
With this feature, you’ll be able to strengthen your team using sync pair combinations that are different from the ones required for type skills.
For example, you can build a team using sync pairs made up of Lillie and her family—or using sync pairs that are all from the same region. Possible team themes include sync pairs based on Pallet Town, villainous organizations, and “complicated families.”
We’re aiming to make this a feature that allows you to build your ideal team in your own way.
This feature will place importance on sync pairs’ relationships with each other and have skills activate based on team themes, so we hope theme skills give you a chance to explore sync pairs’ relationships on a deeper level.
The Champion Stadium Update
To make the Champion Stadium even more enjoyable, we’re planning to add a challenging new mode in December.
For those who want something harder than Hard battles and want to play the Champion Stadium even more, this will give you a new goal.
This challenge will be quite difficult, but it will offer rewards like 5★-Guaranteed Scout Tickets, so try it if you’re confident in your abilities.
At the same time, a new region will come to the Champion Stadium, so we hope you enjoy it.
