Pokemon Masters EX is a mobile title based on real-time three-on-three battles. Players recruit and battle against trainers from the core Pokemon games which come in sync pairs for them to collect. Events make up a large portion of the new content added to the game, and are one main way for players to collect new rare sync pairs.
Generally, during events, players will also be able to obtain rarer items that can be exchanged in the shop for things like power-up materials. So far there have been two Team Rocket events and quite a few dedicated to Gym Leaders from the game series. Sometimes the events will even feature legendary Pokemon, like one which featured Giovanni and Mewtwo.
The Pokemon Masters developers have confirmed a "Palentine's Day" event on Twitter, featuring Serena and Dawn helping an Ace Trainer bake sweets. The new story event is titled Baking Buddies and will go live on January 28. The player, along with Serena and Dawn, go into town to buy ingredients to make some sweets and end up helping out the Ace Trainer who wants to impress someone, but isn't sure they will be able to.
The sync pairs for the event will be Serena and Whimsicott and Dawn and Alcremie. This will be the first time players can recruit those two Pokemon, and for those looking to add a new Fairy-type Pokemon to their team, this is the perfect chance to do so.
It has been a busy holiday season for fans of DeNA's mobile game Pokemon Masters EX. There are two ongoing story events, one introducing Pokemon Black and White's N and another for seasonal winter-themed characters; an Egg event featuring Fire, Rock, and Bug-type Pokemon; and the Champion Stadium feature recently updated to include members of the Johto Elite Four. However, that's apparently not all the game has in store for the end of 2020.
The official Pokemon Masters Twitter account announced a New Year's-themed story event, called "Season's Greetings," will begin immediately after the Christmas-inspired "Deck the Halls" event ends on December 31 at 10:00 p.m. PT. The two alternate costumed characters at the center of this upcoming event will be Elite Four member-turned-Champion Lance alongside Sun and Moon companion Lillie.
Unlike previous announcements for major events in the mobile game, Pokemon Masters has not yet specified which Pokemon the two characters will be paired with - though based on Lance's dialogue in the short clip released on Twitter, it seems he may have Gyarados as a Sync Pair partner. Regardless, the story will center around the somewhat mismatched couple of trainers in kimono searching for cards to send to their loved ones.
A development update released by producers Yu Sakai and Tetsuya Iguchi on December 16 teased a New Year's event, but provided no insight into which Pokemon will be included. However, it does let fans know they can expect a support rally for the release of Skyla's six-star upgrade on January 10, 2021, followed by a Valentine's Day event in February. In the meantime, Nintendo mobile game players can also celebrate New Year's Eve in Mario Kart Tour, Fire Emblem Heroes, and Pokemon GO.
