Recommended Sync Pair Partners for Iris (Fall 2022) & Naganadel

Looker & Croagunk

Looker & Croagunk are one of the newest sync pairs to land on Pasio—and currently one of the strongest Poison-type sync pairs. Iris (Fall 2022) & Naganadel can’t directly raise Looker & Croagunk’s stats, but the Poison Zone created by their Poison Wish can greatly increase Looker & Croagunk’s damage. Iris (Fall 2022) & Naganadel’s passive skill Toxic Chance 2 also has a good chance of poisoning opponents, which means if you select Toxic Power 2 and Virulent Toxin 5 on Looker & Croagunk’s sync grid, then together, the two sync pairs can deal massive damage. Looker & Croagunk are available to scout from the general pool of 5★ sync pairs.

Sabrina & Alakazam

Iris (Fall 2022) & Naganadel are great at increasing Poison-type allies’ damage, but they can also deal plenty of damage on their own with Hyper Beam and the bonuses from Poison Wish’s Poison Zone. And with Sixth Sense! and Dire Hit All, Sabrina & Alakazam can boost Iris (Fall 2022) & Naganadel even more by raising their Sp. Atk and critical-hit rate to their maximum stat ranks, allowing them to deal max damage. Sabrina & Alakazam’s Reflect can also provide defense for sync pairs that have no self-healing or defensive stat buffs. Sabrina & Alakazam are available to scout from the general pool of 5★ sync pairs as well as from the 5★-Guaranteed Ticket Scout and 5★-Guaranteed Kanto Ticket Scout.
