TOKYO—February 24, 2021—DeNA Co., Ltd., in partnership with The Pokémon Company, has announced that sync pairs Leon & Charizard, Marnie & Morpeko, Champion Iris & Hydreigon, and Diantha & Gardevoir will be arriving soon in Pokémon Masters EX. With these additions, the island of Pasio will have had Champions from every region of the Pokémon world arrive on its shores.
Introducing the First Master Sync Pair
Leon, the Champion of the Galar region, and his partner Pokémon Charizard, will be the first master sync pair added to the game. Master sync pairs possess a passive skill that provides a boost to the whole team. Marnie & Morpeko, also hailing from the Galar region, can deploy moves with culinary themes like Full Belly Mode and Hangry Mode. Both of these will be available in the sync pair spotlight scout from February 25th at 10:00 p.m. Pacific Time until March 17th at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
All-New, Upcoming Story Event
In-game events that follow these characters and their time on Pasio will also be available. In Champion Time, a Story Event available from February 25th at 10:00 p.m. Pacific Time until March 17th at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time, players can watch Galar Trainers Leon, Gloria, and Marnie take on top Trainers from other regions in tournament-style exhibition matches. A solo event titled Yell and Dream will be available from March 3rd at 10:00 p.m. Pacific Time until March 17th at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time and follows the story of Marnie as she demonstrates what Trainers from Spikemuth Gym have to offer.
