New Master Mode Feature

Master mode is an all-new feature where you can make battles more challenging and earn more rewards.

You can unlock master mode for a region by entering all 18 types of sync pairs into the Hall of Fame and completing the medal for that region.

In master mode, you can give your opponent advantages by selecting from a range of different options before battle. If you win, you will earn points based on the options you selected.

You can earn various rewards throughout the week each time your point total from the five battles against the Elite Four and Champion exceed a specified amount.

In master mode you can also reset your battle progress and retry battles as many times as you want.

This will allow you to combine different options and try out different approaches to taking on the same opponents.

Try strengthening your opponent using various options and defeat them to earn more points for rewards.

Note: Master mode will be available from the Johto Challenge event onwards.


  • You can participate in the Champion Stadium after you complete Main Story Chapter 10: A Reason to Battle (Normal) in single-player and collect all PML Badges.
  • To attempt the Johto Challenge, you must have completed the Kanto Challenge on Normal difficulty.
  • Only Normal difficulty for the Kanto Challenge will remain available outside of the Kanto Challenge event.
  • Medal acquisition and Hall of Fame information will be saved for each region regardless of event date/time.
  • The time period and featured content are subject to change without notice.

We hope you continue to enjoy Pokémon Masters EX.
