New Master Mode Feature

Master mode is an all-new feature where you can make battles more challenging and earn more rewards. You can unlock master mode for a region by entering all 18 types of sync pairs into the Hall of Fame and completing the medal for that region. In master mode, you can give your opponent advantages by selecting from a range of different options before battle. If you win, you will earn points based on the options you selected. You can earn various rewards throughout the week each time your point total from the five battles against the Elite Four and Champion exceed a specified amount.

Total Point Reward Example
  • ★ Power-Up Ticket ×5
  • Strike Move Candy Coin ×1
  • 5★ Power-Up ×1
  • Champion Spirit ×10
  • Skill Sphere ×100
  • Co-op Sync Orb ×2000
Note: Details about points and rewards can be found in the Champion Stadium Rewards section.

Even if you have completed the medal in the Kanto Challenge, you will still need to complete the medal in the Johto Challenge in order to unlock master mode for the Johto Challenge. Once you have entered the Hall of Fame for the week, you can reset your battle progress and retry battles as many times as you want.

This will allow you to combine different options and try out different approaches to taking on the same opponents. Try strengthening your opponent using various options and defeat them to earn more points for rewards.
