Pokémon Masters is a strategy and battling game where players form teams of sync pairs (the combination of a Trainer and their partner Pokémon) to engage in 3-on-3 real-time battles against AI opponents. With 65 sync pairs to recruit at launch, players can team up with such iconic as Korrina & Lucario, Brendan & Treecko, Clair & Kindra, and many more. The game takes place at the island of Pasio, where Trainers and their partner Pokémon from every known Pokémon region have gathered to compete.
The 3-on-3, real-time battle mechanic in Pokémon Masters is a novel twist on Pokémon battles. Players will be able to release a barrage of moves while their AI opponent unleashes attacks at the same time. Each move requires a certain amount of player's gauge, which will continuously refill during the course of battle. The battle is over once a player defeats his opponent's team of sync pairs. Players will need to form their own team, ration their movement, and strategically deploy the best moves at the most opportune times to ensure victory.
Pokémon Masters features both single player and cooperative play modes. In cooperative play, players can join two players from around the world to battle a team of AI opponents.
In celebration of the launch of Pokémon Masters, special in-game events and rewards will also be available for a limited time. A story event featuring Blue, the iconic Pokémon Trainer from the Kanto region, will be available from September 2nd through September 29th, and allow players to team up with Blue and his partner Pokémon Pidgeot to battle other Trainers from the Kanto region to earn special rewards.
3,000 sync pair scouts, and other in-game items for a limited time by opening the game for the first time, logging in each day for up to 10 days, and participating in launch celebration missions.
More details about these special events and rewards are described in the debut episode of Pokémon Masters News (https://youtu.be/ihJ0dcP1WuY), which features Yu Sasaki, Pokémon Masters lead producer at DeNA, discussing the latest information on the game.
