A Special Present (Japanese: スペシャルなプレゼント) was a one-day-only story event in Pokémon Masters EX. It was focused on the sync pair Rosa and Delibird. Unlike most story events, this event was only available after the player had completed the Rosa's Party single-player story, contained only one battle, and did not reward the player with any event items.


Rosa, Mallow, Tricia, Trista, Trinnia, Siebold, Maylene, and some others enjoy themselves at Rosa's party. After the party is over, Rosa invites the player to a battle. She learned all about hospitality from Siebold and Delibird, so now she wants to take care of the player through battle. After the battle, she says that battling the player is always lots of fun. She thinks everyone enjoyed the party, so she's really glad she hosted it.

  • Intro
Name Text
(The group enjoys themselves in the Pokémon Center; most of the group leaves, with Mallow being the last one, so that only Rosa is left)
Rosa Hey, <player>! Did you have a good time at my party?
I actually have another little surprise for you. A kind of...after party, you could say!
Can you guess what it is?
Surprise! It's a special Pokémon battle—one that I put all my love and joy into!
Siebold and Delibird have taught me all about hospitality and taking care of others. It's time for me to take care of you through a Pokémon battle!
I mean, I've been wanting to battle against you again for a while now... This gives me the perfect excuse! Tee-hee!
I'll go get everything ready for us, OK? Meet up with you later!

(Pokémon Center)
Rosa I dunno if I've ever told you this before, but Pokémon battling with you is so much fun, <player>!
You make battling so exciting! I felt so giddy after that last one—
Wait! Uh-oh... I'm the one who's supposed to be showing YOU hospitality, not the other way around!

Don't worry—I had fun, too!: OK... As long as it's not just me soaking up all the fun!
Do you want to battle again?: Oh, I think I've had my fair share of battles for the day! Thanks, though!
It seems like everyone had a really great time at the party in the end, too! I'm so glad I decided to host it!
I hope we can do all of this again sometime, <player>!
