Pokémon Masters EX presents the first chapter of the Villains Arc with Red and Team Rocket
DeNA Co., Ltd., in partnership with The Pokémon Company, announced that a new story arc titled Villain Arc has been added to the Main Story Mode of Pokémon Masters EX.

Players will research Red and learn about Team Rocket’s objectives. Additional Villain Arc chapters featuring schematics from other infamous Pokémon world organizations will be added to the main story in the future.

The overall story of Pokémon Masters EX takes place on the island of Pasio, where the rules of combat are different and the valuable bond between Trainer and Pokémon is taken to the next level with the concept of “sync pairs”. The narrative components of the main story can be played in single player mode while some battles specific to the main story can be played in cooperative mode.
- Power Up Mega Mewtwo Y: In the Villain: Spreading Shadows event, players can fight to earn and trade items in order to upgrade Giovanni and Mewtwo’s synchronized pair so that Mewtwo can mega-evolve into Mega Mewtwo Y after using a sync move. In their Mega Mewtwo Y state, this sync pair has increased stats and new moves like the powerful Psystrike psychic attack. Players who do not yet have Giovanni and Mewtwo on their squads can add them by completing the legendary Lurking Shadow event. Both events are available until October 15, 2021 at 10:59 p.m. PT for players who have completed Chapter 1 of the main story.
- Sygna Suit Misty & Vaporeon Now Available: This Water-type sync pair can negate both your team’s stat drops and your opponents’ stat boosts with moves like Mist and Haze. Additionally, successful execution of these moves will recharge the four-bar move bar thanks to the complementary passive skills of this sync pair. This sync pair can reach a potential rating of 6 ★ EX, which increases the strength of their sync moves and provides them with an additional optional outfit to wear. Sygna Suit Misty & Vaporeon can be added to player squads through the Sygna Suit Misty Spotlight Scout, available from now until October 15, 2021 at 10:59 p.m. PT.
- Sygna Suit Upcoming Erika & Leafeon: This Grass-type sync pair can make the battlefield weather bright and sunny with Sunny Day movement, which benefits some of its abilities. For example, the powerful Solar Blade attack usually requires a charge period, but can attack instantly when the weather is sunny. This sync pair can also reach a potential rating of 6 ★ EX. Sygna Suit Erika & Leafeon can be added to player squads through the Sygna Suit Erika Spotlight Scout, available September 30 at 11:00 PM PT until October 15, 2021 at 10:59 PM PT.
