A Message from the Pokémon Masters EX Team (Vol. 23)
We’re the producers of Pokémon Masters EX, Yu Sasaki and Tetsuya Iguchi, here with a new message for you.
Today, we’ll tell you about updates up to late August.
App Update for Late July
Triple Feature Poké Fair Scout 72 Hours Only!
5★ Sygna Suit Red & Charizard, 5★ Sygna Suit Blue & Blastoise, and 5★ Sygna Suit Leaf & Venusaur will return in this sync pair scout.
This scout will be available for 72 hours, starting from when you first log in after the app update.
Evelyn & Entei Added to the BP Sync Pair Super Voucher Exchange Items Menu
Evelyn & Entei, a Fire-type master sync pair, will be added to the BP Sync Pair Super Voucher exchange items menu.
Also, on August 8, 2021 at 11:00 p.m. after the Champion Stadium switches regions, Battle Points will be added as additional rewards for master mode.
We hope you take this opportunity to try master mode if you haven’t yet.
The PML Arc of the Main Story Concludes
The main story will be updated on July 29, 2021 at 11:00 p.m., bringing us to the long-awaited final round of the PML tournament.
A highlight of this event is finding out how Blue feels on his path to victory in the PML—and how Red responds to his feelings before the finals.
This update will mark the conclusion of the PML arc of the main story, but we’re working on a new story arc that will begin after it.
We’ll share details about the new story arc in our next message, so we hope you enjoy the Lear Takes the Lead Solo Event that begins on July 29, 2021 at 11:00 p.m., along with the climax of the PML arc, as you wait for the new story arc to begin.
Solo Event: Lear Takes the Lead
The Lear Takes the Lead Solo Event will begin on July 29, 2021.
At the same time, Lear, Rachel, and Sawyer will each appear in the Sync Pair Scout.
Lear & Hoopa
Lear & Hoopa have three passive skills that can each reduce the sync move countdown, allowing them to quickly use their sync move:
– One passive skill reduces the sync move countdown when they enter a battle.
– Another passive skill has a chance of reducing the sync move countdown when a move is successful.
– A third passive skill reduces the sync move countdown the first time they use their sync move.
Also, the power of their sync move, Singularity Hyperspace Hole, increases when none of the target’s stats are raised. Their Snatch move returns the target’s raised stats to normal and raises the user’s stats, so you can use it before using their sync move to do even more damage.
Rachel & Umbreon
Rachel & Umbreon are a support sync pair that have a move called Helloooo! that restores one ally’s HP by approximately 60%, removes status conditions and interference inflicted on that ally, grants them the Enduring effect, and, if the ally has a sync buff, grants them the Gradual Healing effect. With all these effects, Rachel & Umbreon show that they really excel at healing.
Sawyer & Honchkrow
Sawyer & Honchkrow have a move called Forever Loyal! that raises all allies’ Attack and Sp. Atk by two stat ranks, raises their Defense and Sp. Def by one stat rank, and applies the Move Gauge Acceleration effect to the allied field of play.
Also, they have one passive skill that has a chance to raise all allies’ Defense when attacking, and they have another that has a chance to raise all allies’ Sp. Def when attacking, making them a support sync pair that can bolster both their team’s offensive and defensive capabilities.
New Event! Daily Type Rotation: Type Team-Up
Starting August 4, 2021 at 11:00 p.m., a new kind of event, Daily Type Rotation: Type Team-Up, will begin.
In this event, you can take on sync pairs of all 18 types. Types will rotate daily and be featured in battles such as Challenge the Flying Types, Challenge the Rock Types, and Challenge the Water Types.
By completing each battle, you can get gems and items used for training, including tomes and codices for each type, so be sure to give this event a try.
Also, each time a new battle is added, you’ll be able to enjoy special conversations with sync pairs in the Pokémon Center, so we hope you look forward to this event.
Falkner & Swellow Debut
Also on August 4, 2021 at 11:00 p.m., Falkner & Swellow will debut in the sync pair scout.
Falkner & Swellow can use the Fly move to temporarily leave the battle, causing most opponents’ moves aimed at them to miss.
Also, they have three passive skills that each have an effect if an opponent’s move misses:
– One passive skill has a chance to restore their HP.
– Another passive skill charges the move gauge.
– A third passive skill raises the Speed of all allies.
With these passive skills, Falkner & Swellow could be great at supporting allies while avoiding attacks.
Run-Up to Two Years Celebration
Pokémon Masters EX will celebrate its two-year anniversary at the end of August! Thank you so much for your support throughout these two years.
From changing the title of the app to Pokémon Masters EX to new content like the Champion Stadium, we launched some major updates throughout the past year, and we’re preparing various updates that will make this year’s anniversary just as exciting as last year’s.
We’ll share more information about what you can expect from the end of August onward in our next message, and today we’ll tell you about the Run-Up to Two Years Celebration, which begins on August 11, 2021 at 11:00 p.m.
Max Move Debut
We mentioned in a previous message that we are working on bringing Dynamax to the game. This feature will be launched as superpowerful “Max Moves.” The first sync pair to have Max Moves will debut during our Run-Up to Two Years Celebration.
Each Sync Pair that has a Max Move will be able to use their Max Move once during battle, at any time. If a sync pair has more than one Max Move, they can still only use one Max Move per battle.
Plus, each Max Moves will have various additional effects, so you’ll have to think about whether you want to use them to deal a lot of damage or to activate their effects based on the flow of battle.
Of course, sync pairs that have Max Moves will also be able to use their normal sync move as well.
The reason why sync pairs on Pasio can Dynamax will be revealed in the Howling Shield of Eternity legendary event, which we discuss below.
There will only be one sync pair that can use Max Moves debuting in August, but more will be on the way, so stay tuned.
Legendary Event: Howling Shield of Eternity
The Howling Shield of Eternity legendary event will begin on August 11, 2021 at 11:00 p.m.
In this event, you can team up with a new sync pair, Hop & Zamazenta.
Look forward to learning what Hop & Zamazenta can do when the event begins.
Two-Year Run-Up Special Rally
Starting August 18, 2021 at 11:00 p.m., we’ll launch the following as part of the Two-Year Run-Up Special Rally.
Three Legendary Events Return
Three Legendary Events will return at the same time. These events are New World Dilemma, in which you can team up with Cyrus & Palkia, Give and Take, in which you can team up with Professor Sycamore & Xerneas, and Father or Foe, in which you can team up with Ghetsis & Kyurem.
Special Log-In Bonus
For up to 9 days, you’ll be able to get 400 Stamina per day from the Special Log-In Bonus.
You can get 5★-Guaranteed Scout Tickets and other incredible rewards from special missions.
Training Area Reward Boost Rally
You can get more rewards from the Training Area during this rally.
In the Blissful Bonanza!, you can collect valuable items that you can exchange for 5★-Guaranteed Scout Tickets, Lucky Scrolls, lucky cookies, and more.
Legendary Arena: Cresselia is back!
On August 19, 2021 at 11:00 p.m., Cresselia will return to the Legendary Arena.
In addition, we have one more new thing planned for August 18, 2021 at 11:00 p.m.
It will be something special to express our gratitude to all of you for your support throughout two years, so please be sure to log in on August 18, 2021 at 11:00 p.m.
Update in Late August
Finally, we’re planning the following updates for late August.
- Daily log-in bonus update
- Zero stamina consumption for the Evolution Material Area and Sync Orb Area
In addition to the above, we have even more plans in store for the two-year anniversary, so stay tuned.
What to Expect in the Next Message
Our next message is scheduled for late August. In it, we plan to share more information about the two-year anniversary, as well as the new story arc that will come after the Main Story arc is completed.
We’re always working hard to deliver updates and improvements that make the world of Pokémon Masters EX as fun as possible.
We prioritize Trainers’ feedback throughout the development process, so don’t hesitate to let us know what you think.
Until next time, thank you for playing Pokémon Masters EX.
