A major moment for EX fans
DeNA Co., Ltd., in partnership with The Pokémon Company, has kicked off the Four-Year Anniversary celebration for Pokémon Masters EX. In addition to new battling mechanics, events, giveaways, and log-in bonuses, players can look forward to the debut of Red (Champion) & Articuno, Leaf (Champion) & Moltres, and Blue (Champion) & Zapdos to the game.
All three duos are Master sync pairs, meaning they possess master passive skills that provide boosts to a players’ entire team. They are also the first sync pairs to have the newly introduced EX Role, which provides players with an immediate stat boost. If a sync pair with the EX Role’s potential is upgraded to 6★ EX, they will be able to unleash a powered-up sync move as well.
Red (Champion) & Articuno are an Ice-type sync pair with the Kanto Spirit master passive skill, which powers up the Sp. Atk of all allied sync pairs while reducing any Sp. Atk damage taken. This duo can also unleash Frozen Wings Ice Beam, a powerful attack that freezes the opponent and negates any damage-reducing or critical hit-protecting passive skills they might possess. This sync pair will be available to add to players’ teams via the Red Master Fair Scout, available now through October 6 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
Leaf (Champion) & Moltres are a Fire-type sync pair that possesses the Kanto Pride master passive skill, which powers up the physical attacks of all allied sync pairs while reducing any physical damage taken. This sync pair can also use Fiery Wings Flare Blitz, a formidable attack that makes the weather sunny and may leave the target burned. Leaf (Champion) & Moltres will be available to add to players’ teams via the Leaf Master Fair Scout from August 29 at 11:00 p.m. Pacific Time through October 6 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
Blue (Champion) & Zapdos are an Electric-type sync pair that can deploy moves like Thundering Wings Roost, a devastating attack that also restores the HP of all sync pairs on a player’s team by approximately 30%. This sync pair will be available to add to players’ teams via the Blue Master Fair Scout from August 31 at 11:00 p.m. Pacific Time through October 6 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
An in-game story event titled Neo Champions: Three Trainers, Three Minds featuring these three sync pairs is also available from now until October 1 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time. Take part in the adventure with the Pallet Town Trio of Red, Leaf, and Blue.
