Pokémon Masters - A Message from the Pokémon Masters Team (Vol. 2)

Posted by Sunain | October 17th 2019 at 10:12 AM EDT
Tags: Pokémon Masters
Comments: 0

In a follow up to their first Pokémon Masters Team message, Pokémon Masters Producer Yu Sasaki and Operations Producer Tetsuya Iguchi have posted a second message going into a bit more detail about the upcoming changes and improvements to the game.

Message from the Pokémon Masters Team (Vol. 2)

Hello to all Trainers out there, and thank you for playing Pokémon Masters.
We’re the producers of Pokémon Masters, Yu Sasaki and Tetsuya Iguchi, and we’ve got a new message for you. Since sharing our first message, we’ve received a tremendous amount of support and encouragement from many Trainers. We’ve also heard that you’d like us to go into more detail about our upcoming plans and that you’re eager to see these improvements in-game. The development team is closely following your feedback, and we’re working toward delivering a more rewarding game experience.

While the development team is exploring which adjustments can be implemented quickly—and which will require a little more time—we have set up a development timeline that extends from now until March of next year.

As producers, we would like to provide a more enjoyable experience when it comes to scouting sync pairs, training them, and battling with them. We also want to take another look at the structure of events and refine them so that they’re more fun for players. Just because our schedule goes into March doesn’t mean you’ll have to wait that long to notice a difference. Various improvements will be made along the way as we continue to monitor your feedback.

In our first message, we stated four areas of focus:

1. Insufficient content
2. Lack of appealing rewards
3. Difficulty/design
4. Poor usability

Our schedule is built around these areas.

1. New Content Schedule

November: Reward adjustments and additions

To start, we are focusing on improving the rewards planned for upcoming events. We want to do something for everyone who is currently playing Pokémon Masters, even if it’s not a major change

December: Game balance adjustments (battle design); addition of events from which you can get sync pairs; co-op play improvements; and more display options for your sync pairs on the Dex screen.

We’re planning to improve the UI, game performance, and game balance (battle design). We’re also making adjustments so that there will be new events from which you can obtain sync pairs. We’ve heard your thoughts regarding events up to now, and as we move forward on future updates, we’ll continue to value your open and honest feedback.

January: Sync pair training system expansion; training event improvements

To achieve our goal of allowing players to strengthen sync pairs in their own way, we are going to expand the ways you can develop and train your sync pairs. Training is an extremely important aspect of this game, so we’re working hard to ensure that we create a system that has a lot of depth. We will also revamp training events to make them more enjoyable.

February: New single-player content

With new single-player content on the way, we look forward to seeing players build unique teams and develop new strategies.

March: Six-month anniversary; story event updates

March marks six months since the release of Pokémon Masters, and we intend to bring you a quality celebration experience. We will also revamp story events to better emphasize one of the original goals of the game: showing the bonds between Trainers and Pokémon.

As we continue to listen to feedback and work toward implementing these updates, there is always a possibility the above points may change. Ultimately, we will continue working toward delivering a game experience that players will enjoy.

2. Reward Adjustments

Right now, we have four adjustments planned for reward distribution.

1. After the Electric-Type Training Event, we will increase the number of rewards available in the Exchange Items menu for all future training events.
  • More Gym Leader Notes
  • More items for unlocking a sync pair’s level cap
2. Starting in November, we will increase the number of non-paid gems given out monthly.
  • Gems that can be earned from completing existing events
  • Gems that can be received from event log-in bonuses
In addition, we are preparing a special log-in bonus for the first week of November.

3. We’re adding rewards to the Exchange Items menu for story events.
  • 3★ and 4★ Power-Ups will be available
4. The rewards for completing courses and supercourses will be adjusted.
  • Additional bronze Buff Blends, bronze Tech Tonics, and bronze Aid Ades will be added to the Very Hard rewards
Currently, we are focused on making the adjustments listed above in a timely manner. We understand there has been other feedback regarding rewards, and we are working to make additional adjustments in the future. We hope you enjoy the quick boost in the meantime.

What to Expect in the Next Message

We want Pokémon Masters to bring out the charm of sync pairs, allow you to train your favorites, and inspire you to create your own dream team. As we work toward that goal, we’ll continue to make various improvements and focus on the areas of game difficulty/design and poor usability.

We plan to start addressing game performance issues in our December update, and our next producer letter will provide more details on these improvements:
  • Device temperature while playing the game
  • Co-op battle pacing
  • Battery consumption
  • Load times
We’ll continue to update you on new content, and we look forward to sharing more exciting updates in our next producer letter.

Regarding Our Update Timeline

We’d like to thank you once again for your feedback and for supporting Pokémon Masters. Like fans, we want these improvements in the game as soon as possible, but we are also working carefully to ensure that we do not sacrifice quality in the process. We hope you enjoy the reward adjustments in November’s events and also look forward to the exciting content coming in December.

As we move forward, we hope to improve not only the game but also the speed at which we can deliver future content. We appreciate your patience and thank you once more for playing Pokémon Masters.

Our next producer letter is scheduled for November 7. Schedule and message content are subject to change.

Pokémon Masters Producer: Yu Sasaki
Operations Producer: Tetsuya Iguchi

Comments: 0

Niantic have announced the details for the 22nd Pokémon GO Community Day which takes place on November 16th, 2019 at 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM EST. The featured Pokémon for this day is Chimchar. Chimchar will appear in the wild more frequently for three hours that day. The 1/4 Egg Hatch Distance and 3-hour Lures bonuses will also be available that day.

Pokémon GO’s November Community Day Features Chimchar and a Special Move

This month’s Pokémon GO Community Day event features Chimchar, and you can get an Infernape that knows a special move.

The Fire-type Chimchar is the hot Pokémon for November's Pokémon GO Community Day, and you'll definitely want to catch as many of this Pokémon as you can during the event. This month's Community Day event will happen on Saturday, November 16, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time.

Chimchar will appear much more frequently in the wild during this time, and if you're lucky, you might even find a Shiny Chimchar! If you evolve Monferno (the Evolution of Chimchar) into Infernape during the event or up to two hours afterward, the Infernape will know a move it can't normally learn. Also during this time, Lure Modules will last for three hours and Eggs will hatch in one quarter of their usual distance.

Check back soon to find out the name of the special move, and have fun on Chimchar Community Day, Trainers!

New Gigantamax Pokémon Revealed in Pokémon Sword and Shield

Posted by Sunain | October 16th 2019 at 09:42 AM EDT
Tags: Press Release, YouTube, Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield
Comments: 0
The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today revealed the Gigantamax forms of Pikachu, Charizard, Eevee, Meowth, and Butterfree. Gigantamaxing changes a Pokémon’s size, power, and appearance and allows them to use a G-Max Move. Only certain species of Pokémon can Gigantamax—and even among such species, only rare specimens will be able to. Gigantamax Pokémon will appear in the highly anticipated upcoming video games Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, launching on November 15, 2019, exclusively on Nintendo Switch systems. High resolution artwork and screenshots from the press release have been added to an Imageboard thread.


Gigantamax Forms of Pikachu, Eevee, and More Announced ​​​​​​​


Gigantamax Pikachu
Type: Electric
Height: 68'11"+
Weight: ???
Ability: Static

The electricity generated in the sacs in its cheeks is stored in its tail. In battle, it will strike opponents with its tail and send a jolt of electricity through them as great as any lightning strike. Gigantamax Pikachu has become so powerful that it can produce enough electricity to rival a power plant. However, using this electricity to help power people’s homes seems difficult, as Pikachu can only remain Gigantamaxed for a short time. Electric-type attacks used by Gigantamax Pikachu will change to G-Max Volt Crash, which not only deals damage but also paralyzes all opponents.

Trainers that have play records from Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! on their Nintendo Switch system will be able to receive a special Pikachu that can Gigantamax in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.


Gigantamax Charizard
Type: Fire/Flying
Height: 91'10"+
Weight: ???
Ability: Blaze

The flames inside its body have become stronger, and now fire erupts from its mouth and horns in addition to its tail. It seems that the strength of the flames increases when Gigantamax Charizard roars. Charizard’s flames have become enhanced with Gigantamax power and now form wings on its back. These wings are hotter than magma, and Charizard can fire them off to scorch its opponents. Fire-type attacks used by Gigantamax Charizard will change to G-Max Wildfire. G-Max Wildfire doesn’t just deal damage to an opponent when it hits—it will also continue to deal damage for four turns to any Pokémon that isn’t Fire type.

Gigantamax Eevee
Type: Normal
Height: 59'1"+
Weight: ???
Ability: Run Away / Adaptability

The fur around its neck has become extra fluffy and luxurious thanks to Gigantamax power. Any opponent caught in this fur becomes enamored with Eevee and loses the will to fight. Gigantamaxing has caused Eevee to become more rambunctious than ever, and it will attempt to play with any opponent. However, it often ends up crushing its opponent due to its massive size. Normal-type attacks used by Gigantamax Eevee will change to G-Max Cuddle. G-Max Cuddle doesn’t only deal damage when it hits—any opponent that is the opposite gender of Eevee will become infatuated.

Trainers that have play records from Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! on their Nintendo Switch system will be able to receive a special Eevee that can Gigantamax in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.


Gigantamax Meowth
Type: Normal
Height: 108'3"+
Weight: ???
Ability: Pickup/Technician

Gigantamaxing has caused Meowth’s body to stretch to astounding lengths, and the coin on its head has also become massive. The giant coin can emit a torrent of Gigantamax power, filling the surrounding area with a powerful golden gleam. Meowth loves shiny objects, and when it sees skyscrapers lined with glass, it won’t be able to resist the urge to sharpen its claws on them. This behavior can cause considerable damage, such as wearing down the exterior walls and breaking windows. Normal-type attacks used by Gigantamax Meowth will change to G-Max Gold Rush. G-Max Gold Rush deals damage to opponents and also scatters coins all over the area, giving Trainers a considerable in-game cash bonus after the battle.

This special Meowth that can Gigantamax can be received as an early-purchase bonus for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield by selecting the Get via Internet option in Mystery Gift from Friday, November 15, 2019, to Wednesday, January 15, 2020.


Gigantamax Butterfree
Type: Bug/Flying
Height: 55'9"+
Weight: ???
Ability: Compound Eyes

Its most notable feature is its blinding wings, which have grown to gigantic proportions. The light of Gigantamax Butterfree’s wings comes from its scales, which can inflict paralysis, poisoning, or sleep on its opponents. These scales are Butterfree’s most effective weapons. Its vast wings can stir up a wind strong enough to lift a 10-ton truck, just by flapping. This wind also scatters poisonous scales around the area, so simply being near this Pokémon is very dangerous. Bug-type attacks used by Gigantamax Butterfree will change to G-Max Befuddle. G-Max Befuddle doesn’t only deal damage—it will also scatter scales around opponents and cause them to become poisoned, become paralyzed, or fall asleep.
