A Message from the Pokémon Masters EX Team (Vol. 56)

Happy new year, Trainers. We’re the producers of Pokémon Masters EX, Yu Sasaki and Tetsuya Iguchi, here with a new message for you. Thanks to your support, we’re once again entering a new year in Pokémon Masters EX. The entire development team is dedicated to keep providing you with the best experience possible, so we hope you continue to enjoy your adventures on Pasio. Today, we’ll focus on details about Rallies and events for around the beginning of the new year.

Sygna Suit Red (Thunderbolt) and Sygna Suit Cynthia (Aura) Return!

As of December 31, 2023 at 7:00 a.m., Master Sync Pairs from the three-year anniversary—Sygna Suit Red (Thunderbolt) & Pikachu and Sygna Suit Cynthia (Aura) & Lucario—have returned!

To go along with their returns, the Tech Sync Pair Sygna Suit Red (Thunderbolt) & Pikachu have gained the Field EX Role, and the Support Sync Pair Sygna Suit Cynthia (Aura) & Lucario have gained the Sprint EX Role.

Paid Gems-only Sync Pair Scouts that include presents are also available. In these Sync Pair Scouts, when you scout a featured Sync Pair, you’ll get a Roll Cake needed to unlock that Sync Pair’s EX Role!
Plus, Sync Pair Scouts that let you select a Fair-Exclusive Sync Pair are now under way.

One of these Sync Pair Scouts includes every Strike Fair-Exclusive Sync Pair that has appeared up to now, another includes every Tech Fair-Exclusive Sync Pair, and the other includes every Support Fair-Exclusive Sync Pair. We hope you check them out!

Story Event Rising New Year’s Resolutions Is Under Way

Story Event Rising New Year’s Resolutions began on December 31, 2023! Wallace is in charge of hosting a New Year’s event. It seems Sabrina told him that she had a premonition in which a certain entity would guide the event to success.

Will the event go off without a hitch? You can team up with Katherine (Furisode Girl) & Slurpuff by completing the event, so be sure to give it a try!

Wallace (New Year's 2024) & Blacephalon

Wallace (New Year's 2024) & Blacephalon are a Field Sync Pair that can apply Hoenn Circle (Special). Their EX Role is Strike!

Their Hoenn Analysis Move increases the Special Moves ↑ Next effect of all allies by one rank. It also applies Hoenn Circle (Special), which can power up the special attack moves and special sync moves of all allies by 10% and reduce special attack move and special sync move damage taken by all allies by 5%.

Also, their Max Flare Max Move can make the weather sunny, so they’re a great choice to include on teams alongside Sync Pairs that would excel with both field effects. Plus, their Strange Flames Mind Blown Buddy Move is quite unique. It attacks all opponents, and every time they use it, they’ll increase their own Special Moves ↑ Next effect by zero to ten ranks at random!


Clair (New Year's 2024) & Drampa

Clair (New Year's 2024) & Drampa are a Support Sync Pair that can apply the Free Move Next effect to all allies multiple times. Their EX Role is Tech! One of their Passive Skills can apply the Free Move Next effect to all allies when Clair (New Year's 2024) uses a Move!

They also have the first-ever Passive Skill that can ignore power-up effects from weather conditions, terrains, and zones when an ally gets attacked by a Move, Sync Move, or Max Move, which lets you set the most beneficial field effects for your allies without worrying about the opponent’s type.


Other Updates

Amazing Rallies for the New Year

Two Log-in Bonuses started on December 31, 2023. The New Year’s Gift Log-In Bonus lets you collect a total of 5,000 Gems, and you can get various Move Candy Coins and Roll Cake Coins (11 coins total) from the New Year Log-In Bonus!

Also, just like last year, the New Year’s Gem Present Rally is now live. A total of 200 million Gems will be given away and the top prize is 60,000 Gems, so be sure to log in and join the Rally!

A New Guest Arrives in the Trainer Lodge

As of December 31, 2023, you can invite Volkner as a Guest to the Trainer Lodge! To invite Volkner, you’ll need to team up with Volkner & Luxray first. You can team up with Volkner & Luxray from various Sync Pair Scouts, so be sure to invite him once you’ve teamed up with this Sync Pair.


Also, new content has been added to the Mysterious Stones Chapter. You’ll need to have collected a total of 200 Mysterious Stones to unlock this story’s area.

You can get Mysterious Stones from the Daily Region Rotation and other places, but if you’re in a hurry to collect them, you have a rare chance to receive them when completing some battles in the Training Area, so give it a try if you want to play more of the story as soon as possible.

In addition, last year’s Story Event Gather Up! Dream Duo! will return on January 3, 2024, and January 8, 2024 will bring a High Score Event where the recommended type is Grass, as well as the Battle Villa and the addition of a new battle to Challenge the Strong. We hope you look forward to all this content!

Future Updates

At the end of January, we’re planning to release the new battle content that we told you about in previous messages!

Previously, we mentioned that you’ll aim to earn points by winning multiple battles as you proceed. In addition to this, you can choose either the Normal, Hard, or Very Hard difficulty for each battle.

The harder the battle, the more points you can earn. On top of that, all battles have certain Roles that will grant you a point bonus. For example, in a battle that has Strike and Tech getting a bonus, the number of points you can earn for winning while having Strike or Tech Sync Pairs on your team will increase.

EX Roles are also eligible for the bonus, which means a Strike Sync Pair that has a Tech EX Role would get you even more points! Sync Pairs’ HP and Moves’ MP are carried over during your challenge, so we encourage you to think carefully about your strategies, such as which Sync Pairs to use for each battle, and when to use which items.

As we said in a previous message, you can exchange the points you’ve earned at an exclusive Shop for items used to strengthen your Sync Pairs.

There are several beneficial items you can exchange for in this content, such as ones that apply certain field effects at the start of battle and ones that let you see information about the battles ahead, so we hope you try to find items that fit your own personal strategy.

Also, due to the addition of this content, the Battle Villa will no longer open periodically as it had up to now, and will instead become permanent content. Please note that as a result, January will be the final occurrence of the Battle Villa as an event.

What to Expect in the Next Message

Our next message is scheduled for late January.
In it, we plan to share information about new Sync Pairs and events for February.

We’re always working hard to deliver updates and improvements that make the world of Pokémon Masters EX as fun as possible.

Until next time, thank you for playing Pokémon Masters EX.
