DeNA Co., Ltd., in partnership with The Pokémon Company, is ringing in the New Year by announcing various themed content updates for Pokémon Masters EX. DeNA also revealed a banner showcasing several of the 50 Sync Pairs added to the game in 2020, celebrating a year of growth and achievement with its community.
Players will be able to add New Years-inspired versions of Lillie & Ribombee and Lance & Gyarados to their squads via the Sync Pair Scout, available now through January 13, 2021 at 9:59 p.m. PT. Lillie and Ribombee’s Bug-type sync pair can deploy moves like Alola Lang Syne !, which increases the evasiveness of all allied sync pairs while blocking state conditions. The Lance & Gyarados flying-type sync pair can trigger moves like Hyper Beam, which deals extraordinary damage at the cost of four (out of six) bars of the movement gauge.
Both sync pairs can reach a potential of 6 ★ EX, which increases the strength of their sync moves and provides them with an extra New Years-inspired outfit to wear.
An in-game story event titled “Season’s Greetings” is also available until January 13, 2021 at 9:59 PM PT for players who have completed Chapter 1 of the main story. This event features Lillie and Lance in their New Years outfits as they work together to deliver New Years cards to various trainers on Pasio, such as Blue, Silver, and Clair.
To commemorate the New Year, players can earn up to 7,200 Gems, enough to add up to 26 Sync Pairs to their teams by completing various Login and Mission challenges throughout that month. Until January 13, 2021 at 9:59 p.m. PT, 1,200 Gems are available for players who complete Special Missions. Players who log in to the game by January 31, 2021 at 9:59 p.m. PT will earn 3,000 gems, while players who log in for 10 days by January 31, 2021 at 9:59 PM PT , can earn up to an additional amount. 3000 gems.
In addition to these New Year’s themed content updates, DeNA also announced that the following content updates are now available:
• Champion Stadium – Johto Challenge: Opponents of the Champion Stadium game mode will now be from the Johto region, allowing players to face Will, Koga, Bruno and Karen of the Johto Elite Four, as well as the Johto Champion, Lance. The real challenge of this game mode is having to defeat them all in five consecutive battles with a limited number of sync pairs. Once a Sync Pair has entered a battle, they can no longer fight while the challenge is in progress, making it crucial for players to have an arsenal of powerful Sync Pairs. Champion Stadium is available until January 31, 2021 at 9:59 p.m. PT for players who have completed Chapter 10 of the main story. In the future, Elite Four members and Champions from other regions of the Pokémon world will also come to the Champion Stadium.

All Pokémon hatched from eggs can be paired with the main character of the game to fight against each other.
