Pokémon Masters - A Message from the Pokémon Masters Team (Vol. 6)

The producer of Pokémon Master Yu Sasaki posted an open letter about the game on the Pokémon Master's official website. The letter addresses some of the issues that the game is currently facing and their goals to fix the most common concerns from the community and also talked about upcoming features.

A Message from the Pokémon Masters Team (Vol. 6)

Greetings, Trainers. We’re the producers of Pokémon Masters, Yu Sasaki and Tetsuya Iguchi, here with a new message for you. This time, we’ll be sharing details about the new Sync Grid feature, January’s legendary event, and what you can expect in the next update.

Sync Grid

Sync grids will go live with the content update scheduled for mid-January. They’re a new feature that allows you to strengthen your sync pairs in various ways. A portion of each sync pair’s grid will be rolled out during upcoming in-game events, so please stay tuned for updates!

Image

The Basics

In order to activate tiles on the sync grid, you’ll need to collect sync orbs. At the beginning of a battle, the “Sync orb chance!” message may appear—if it does, use a sync move during the battle for a chance to earn sync orbs as drops.

By using sync orbs to activate tiles, you can teach your sync pairs new grid skills. However, activating tiles also reduces your pool of available energy, so however you choose to use that energy is bound to be unique.

Some tiles on the sync grid have additional requirements, such as a minimum sync move level.

Grid Skills

We’re planning to have the following available to unlock:

  • Stat raises
  • Sync move enhancements
  • Improvements to moves’ effectiveness and accuracy
  • Passive skills

Grid Availability

All sync pairs will have sync grids when this feature is launched. With the exception of some sync pairs, the grid skills that can be learned initially will be limited. Sync grids will be expanded in the future for the rest of the sync pairs, as well as for newly released sync pairs.

Sync pairs that will have expanded sync grids in this update are Main Character & Pikachu, Flannery & Torkoal, and Flint & Infernape.

In order to accentuate each sync pair’s unique characteristics, we’re making sure to fine-tune the grid skills as we release them. We’re also considering ways to have sync orbs become obtainable from events, so we hope you look forward to your favorite pair getting their sync grid expanded.

Sync orbs that are unique to the sync pairs you team up with in the main story will be exchangeable during their type-specific training events.

Future Plans

In late January, Pryce & Seel will have their sync grid expanded. Generally, we’re planning on expanding sync grids for about four sync pairs each month.

Legendary Event in Late January

A new legendary event is coming in late January, in which an immensely popular Legendary Pokémon will join the fray.

Image

Also, Event Mission Bingo will debut, offering items for training as well as sync orbs. You can get lots of useful items as you enjoy this new feature.

Many opponents that are weak to Rock-type attacks will appear in this legendary event, so we recommend training up sync pairs like Sygna Suit Brock & Tyranitar and Grant & Amaura. Also, moves that lower your enemy’s defenses may prove vital.

Image

Upcoming Update

We have plans in store that will give you new ways to enjoy using your favorite sync pairs.

  • By acquiring certain items from training events, you’ll be able to raise the levels of sync moves for sync pairs that join you from the main story.
  • When you are hit by an opponent’s sync move in battle, the raised stats of all your allied sync pairs will no longer return to normal.
  • We’re adjusting the difficulty of EX Challenges so that even more players will be able to enjoy them.
  • It’s been our goal to improve the overall gameplay of Pokémon Masters with these updates, so if you have any comments or suggestions regarding what we’ve been doing, we’d love to hear from you.

Battle Villa

The Battle Villa is a feature that lets you train up to nine sync pairs per day. The sync pairs you’ll face depend on the hall (or level) you’re in. You’ll need to pay close attention to your opponent’s weakness when building a team, but don’t rely on using supereffective attacks alone. Status conditions and support skills are important, too.

You’ll want to train your support sync pairs and strike sync pairs that can hit the enemy’s weakness. Depending on the hall that you’re in, skills from tech sync pairs will also prove to be useful, so focus on building a balanced team.

After completing certain halls, you’ll receive items that are exclusive to the Battle Villa. These items are sure to come in handy as you make your way through, so use them well.

The Battle Villa is intended to test how far you can make it within a set period of time, so your progress will be reset at fixed intervals. When progress is reset, you’ll receive gems based on how far you made it. Challenge yourself and see how far you can get each day.

Using the rewards you get from the Battle Villa, you’ll be able to grant your sync pairs lucky skills, which are a new way to customize your favorite sync pairs.

Lucky skills are a type of passive skill that provide beneficial effects when conditions are met, such as when a certain move is used. Consider the moves and passive skills your sync pairs have so you can teach them complementary lucky skills.

Image

Six-Month Anniversary Celebration

Pokémon Masters celebrates its six-month anniversary this February. To show our appreciation to everyone for their support, we’ll hold a special rally in mid-February.

Here’s what we have in store.

The Battle Villa launches!

The Battle Villa will make its long-awaited debut on Pasio.

Story event overhaul!

We’re giving story events an overhaul, starting with the update scheduled for late February. You’ll be able to enjoy a new story experience that has incredible rewards, like sync orbs and ★ Power-Ups.

A surprising new sync pair comes to Pasio!

A certain sync pair will come to Pasio, along with exclusive training missions. You’ll be able to get this sync pair just by logging in. By using this sync pair to complete various adventures, you’ll also be able to finish new missions. Just who could this sync pair be?

Tons of Pokémon are ready to evolve!

Several unevolved Pokémon will become able to evolve! We’ve received many requests for this since the launch of the game, so we hope you enjoy the new Evolutions!

Main story addition!

Chapters 22 through 24 will be added to the main story! New sync pairs will join you as the main story on Pasio continues.

What to Expect in the Next Message

In our next message, we’ll tell you all about the Six-Month Anniversary Celebration and look forward to updates for March and beyond.

Our next message is scheduled for late February.

We are continuing to make the world of Pokémon Masters more enjoyable for players. We appreciate your feedback, so if you have any comments regarding our planned improvements, please don’t hesitate to contact us through the Feedback section in the game.

Until next time, thank you for playing Pokémon Masters.

Pokémon GO - Trade Evolution and more Pokémon originally discovered in Unova are here!

Niantic has announced that Trade Evolution and more Pokémon originally discovered in Unova will be added to Pokémon GO!

Image

Trade Evolution and more Pokémon originally discovered in Unova are here!

Trainers, Trade Evolution has long been an iconic mechanic in the main Pokémon series. We are excited to adapt this feature to Pokémon GO! Trading certain Pokémon will result in no Candy cost to evolve them. More Pokémon originally discovered in the Unova region are also coming to Pokémon GO—and some of them will benefit from the addition of trade Evolution, too.

Trade Evolution
  • How it works: Trade an eligible Pokémon to lower the Candy cost to evolve them.
  • Which Pokémon can gain Evolution benefits from trading? Kadabra, Machoke, Graveler, and Haunter are some Pokémon that can now benefit from trade Evolution. If you received one of these Pokémon in a trade in the past—congratulations! That Pokémon will retroactively qualify for no Candy cost when you evolve it.
  • Pokémon originally discovered in the Unova region that benefit from trade Evolution: Boldore, Gurdurr, Karrablast, and Shelmet are now appearing in Pokémon GO and will be eligible for trade Evolution benefits. And remember, Trainers: Boldore’s and Gurdurr’s Evolutions, Gigalith and Conkeldurr, might be powerful Pokémon to have in your battle parties!

Even more Pokémon coming to the world of Pokémon GO! In addition to Boldore, Gurdurr, Karrablast, and Shelmet, we have an exciting cast of more Pokémon that will be appearing in the wild, in raids, and in Eggs soon.

  • Pokémon appearing in the wild: Roggenrola, Tympole, Dwebble, Trubbish, Karrablast, Joltik, Shelmet, and more.
  • Pokémon hatching from Eggs:
    • 2 km Eggs: Venipede and Dwebble
    • 5 km Eggs: Roggenrola, Tympole, Trubbish, Karrablast, Joltik, and Shelmet
    • 10 km Eggs: Timburr, Tirtouga, Archen, and Axew
  • Pokémon appearing in raids: Timburr will also be available in one-star raids.
  • Pokémon appearing in the wild in certain parts of the world:
    • North America, South America, and Africa: Throh (also available in 10 km Eggs)
    • Europe, Asia, and Australia: Sawk (also available in 10 km Eggs)
    • Southern United States, Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America: Maractus
    • Egypt and Greece: Sigilyph
    • Eastern hemisphere: Red-Striped Form Basculin
    • Western hemisphere: Blue-Striped Form Basculin
Do you have a favorite trade Evolution? Which Pokémon originally found in the Unova region are you most excited to encounter? Let us know on social media with #PokemonGO! C’mon, Trainers—let’s GO on this Unova-themed voyage together!
