Strategy: Training Sync Pairs
Level up your sync pairs!
Raise the level of your sync pairs to the recommended level for the battle.
To level up beyond Lv. 100, use the Unlock Level Cap menu.
To obtain the items required, head to the Cap-Unlock Area in the Training Area.
Use the sync grid effectively!
Power up your sync pairs even further via their sync grids. Simply use the Co-op Sync Orbs available in the Sync Orb Area of the Training Area.
There are various ways to upgrade your sync pairs, so choose whatever suits you.
Strategy: Forming Your Team
Unleash Theme Skills!
Create teams with sync pairs that share the same themes and target your opponents’ weaknesses.
Use Theme Skills to make your sync pairs even stronger.
Switching tactics changes the order your team members are targeted.
A key strategy is to have support sync pairs with higher HP, Defense, or Sp. Def targeted first, and strike sync pairs with higher Attack or Sp. Atk targeted third.
Strategy: Battle Basics
Defeat opponents in the center last!
If you defeat an Elite Four or Champion sync pair in the center position first, the Pokémon on the left and right will unleash powerful moves.
So try to defeat the sync pair in the center position last.
Tap an opponent’s Pokémon during battle to switch between targets.
Strategy: Battle Tips
Recommended Fighting Style
- Brace yourself for incoming physical attacks!
- Try to land critical hits!
- Prepare for your opponent’s Enduring effect!
Recommended Sync Pairs and Tactics
- #1: Ingo & Excadrill
- #2: Bertha & Hippowdon
- #3: Sygna Suit Giovanni & Nidoking
Your opponent mainly uses physical attacks, so use Bertha & Hippowdon’s Sand Slinger 9 Passive Skill to lower their Attack.
Steven & Metagross have Passive Skills that raise their Defense and Sp. Def when they are attacked, so try boosting your critical-hit rate.
Steven & Metagross will use Best There Is! after a Sync Move to gain the Enduring effect, so attack with Sync Moves or Max Moves that can ignore the opponent’s Enduring effect!
